Verizon will unlock
I looked for the TOS that had the terms where Verizon stated info about rules governing the unlocking of any of their phones. I will write what I remember about it. Basicly if you have had service for 60 days and are in good standing payment wise just stop into any Verizon store and ask, I think the best way is to say you are going out of the country and will need to use it on another network. Allso it said you can have upto 3 phones unlocked per year. I read this or found the link to the TOS on a forum for international travelers. Kindof makes sence that Verizon would be willing to do this without question because they asume you want it for travel and not so you can move to another provider here.
