AT&T iphone 3gs to Verizon Pre paid?

Hey there,
I was wondering if anybody could help me out. I have a iPhone 3gs from AT&T version 5.0.1 with 05.16.05 Firmware. Is there anyway I can switch it over to use my Verizon pre paid account?

You will never get an ATT phone to work with Sprint or Verizon, because ATT (and T-Mobile) use GSM phones and Sprint and Verizon use CDMA phones. It is a hardware and band difference that absolutely cannot be overcome.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is what it is.
