    I keep meaning to call V and have them unlock it... I just never seem to get around to doing it. I'd do it ASAP though if it's something that you're concidering.

    I called to make sure they had the correct Verizon (Vodaphone) SIM card # on file before I traveled internationally. Then proceeded to ask about unlocking, and they walked me through the process it was easy!

    They do send you a disclaimer about being charged from 3rd party SIM cards.

    Just tell them that, if you have been a good customer they will do it without a doubt.

    No just a disclaimer about being changed by the 3rd party SIM card rates. Its out of VZW hands if you use one!

    Just tell them that you want to use a local sim card while you are out of the country. No need to change plans.
    I called them yesterday and told them I was going on vacation to France (true) and wanted to use a different carrier while I was there. They gave me the code and walked me through unlocking it.
    FYI, call from a different phone if you want them to walk you through the unlocking process.

    If you can't get it from them, I suggest a guy on this forum with the username called ngreen, pm him, or email him on mickrg@hotmail.com
