Like I said in my original email, I did call before I left. I got the number by walking into a Verizon store and asking them how to unlock my phone, and they said I should call the Global support number. I did both of those things before I left.
I'm not Verizon so I didn't get the email, and the above post says nothing about any of that. Unless you have a 3g phone you don't need anything unlocked. Almost all 4G phones come globally unlock and always did.
We can help make sure you are able to use your phone while traveling! We have a Virtual Calling Card that you can use to reach out to our Global Support team, toll-free, from any landline. Please follow the instructions here: http://vz.to/J2vhyf for assistance.
