Global SIM Unlock for HP Pre 3

I managed to snag a very rare HP Pre 3 for Verizon Wireless, only to discover that the GSM "Global Ready" SIM is locked to Vodafone overseas.  I travel to Norway frequently for work, and have a Telenor SIM I want to use with the phone.  HP/Palm said that I should contact Verizon to SIM-unlock the phone, but so far I have not received a consistent response from Verizon tech support.  If I provide the device MEID, will Verizon be able to provide a SIM unlock code?


Thanks for your help!

If you have VzW services: call their Global Support Team at 1-800-711-8300. If you're in good standing you can unlock your SIM once a year.

If you don't have VzW service, you're out of luck (officially).
