    Is it possible to unlock a Verizon Wireless branded phone for the purpose of receiving updates directly from BlackBerry instead of Verizon? I still plan on using Verizon's network

    Thanks.

    No. Having the phone unlocked merely makes it able to accept and use the sim card from another compatible carrier. It doesn't make it a factory unlocked device. Factory unlocked devices are recognized by the IMEI numbers.

    Your updates will still come from Verizon.

    And just as additional information - the Verizon Priv is sold UNLOCKED. Meaning you don't need any special code to use a foreign sim card in the Verizon Priv. (but there are limits to US carriers working on the Verizon model - but if you were to go to Europe you could use a sim from one of those carriers).
