    If it is possible, I need to unlock a Verizon Iphone 4S so I can use it with SIM cards in other places...

    Gracias!

    Maybe Verizon will unlock it for you. Other then that you need to be jailbroken, which isn't available at this point.

    From what I heard, you call Vzn and they can order a unlock from Apple. You need to say your leaving the country. But to complete the unlock, you will need a international SIM. This was they process that I know somebody went through but they dont have the international SIM to see if that really completes it.

    I thought I read that Verizon wouldn't unlock any of their phones for at least 30 days from purchase?

    Typically in the past verizon requires you to be on there network for a certain amount of time before they will unlock your phone..

    You just have to be a customer w/ good standing for 60 days or 90 days I forgot (I've been w/ them for years), and cannot unlock more than 1 device within 10 month

    So can I just call and say I want my phone unlocked ? I've been with them years also and everything is in good standing. Once they do it how do I know it's unlocked is there something I have to do on my end ?

    Yes, you have to call and get their Global support department or something like that. And then they'll add your 4S into their registry of unlocked iphones and I'm not sure if that's also synced up w/ Apple at some point as well.

    Anyways, after that, you have to have an International SIM card to complete the process.

    Ya I read a 6 page thread an u call and they unlock u .. U need a international sim pop it in and then activate using iTunes or wifi (one time only) but if u jump back to Verizon network u have redo the one time activation again.
    But unlock is for international only meaning.no AT&T or t mobile .. Only way I can see around this is with a jailbreak to truly get a unlock for any gsm carrier

    Verizon should just leave it fully unlocked I mean obviously u signed a contract so your on the hook even if u use a diff providers sim now and then

    i'm not sure what unlocking will do for you verizon customers. will you still have to pay large fee to use the phone outside the USA. As an ATT customer I allways unlock my phones and put a sim card in for the country I'm in then all may calls are local in that county. Its cheaper to call the USA from Europe and other then us to them. specialy if you not in the USA to begin with

    An unlocked Verizon 4S works exactly the same way as an unlocked AT&T 4S overseas. There's no difference there.

    Only difference is that in the US, you can use the Verizon CDMA network, or roam on GSM w/ an overseas SIM card. An AT&T 4S cannot use the CDMA network.
