You'll need to speak with the carrier in your country at that time for a local SIM from them.  Most likely though, your phone will not work well wherever you go.  Verizon phones like Verizon's network and will look for a Verizon SIM, for which you cannot use wherever you go outside the US.  You shouldn't use a Verizon device with a T-Mobile SIM.  Unlocked means POSSIBLE to activate on other carriers, not a GUARANTEE that it will work. All Verizon LTE phones are unlocked to begin with.  You should buy a phone from your local carrier.

Go to a corporate Verizon store and get one that IS from Verizon - they are free.  Activate the phone using the Verizon SIM card.  I think you can also call customer service and they will mail you one.

If you are using a Verizon phone on Verizon service, you should have a Verizon SIM.  As stated above, you can call to have one sent in 10 days or less, visit a corporate store for a free SIM, visit an authorized retailer and pay $5-$20, or order one from your My Verizon page.

I'm sorry, please clarify.  Are you trying to use a T-Mobile device on Verizon? Or a T-Mobile SIM in a Verizon device?

I have a Verizon phone that has been in use for a couple of years. Today, I restarted my device and now I have this notification. I bought the phone from Verizon, it IS a Verizon SIM as it came with the phone. I have never had this notification pop up before, but now it does. Something changed outside of my control and I don't much care for it. What to do now?
