Hello everyone,

Can Verizon iPhone 8 plus be unlocked for Tmobile service? If yes, how to do that? I am using Tmobile.

Thank you.

It should already be SIM unlocked.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

When I purchased the phone, I had used it with Tmobile perfectly. Then, I reseted the whole phone and it came out "No service" on Tmobile service. Do you know what I should do? Thank you.

That's information which should have been included in the original post.

wanboo05-

I can certainly provide information regarding the use of your Verizon device on another network. If the phone has been activated on a Verizon Wireless account then it is unlocked to be used with another carrier. As of 02/12/18, all Verizon Wireless iPhones will be locked until initially activated on Verizon.

I have a Verizon acct. and I am currently using Pixel Phone with that account.  I bought a VERIZON iPhone X and would like to unlock it for oversea on the upcoming trip.  I activated the phone with Verizon simcard and it worked perfectly.  I ASSUMED IT WOULD BE UNLOCKED.  However, when I borrowed a T-mobile simcard to test.  It said SIMCARD NOT SUPPORT.  Should I have left the Verizon Simcard on the iPhone X for a longer period of time.  Like a few days or so? .etc.

I put the Verizon simcard in my iPhone X and it activated.  I saw of the Verizon website it was activated and recognized the device.  I left the simcard in the phone for approximately 15 mins or so.  Should I have left the simcard in longer.  Is there a waiting period that I have to use THAT phone for it to be unlocked?

I spoke to rep. at Verizon.   She said "no".  The phone was verified PAID OFF and in good standing (not blacklisted).

Thx

Davie
