Is the Samsung S9 Plus unlocked?

That is, will it work if I put in a SIM purchased in Europe?

The Samsung S9 is a great device to use abroad. Great news! This is an unlocked phone that is global ready. For more details on our unlocking policy http://vz.to/2b93CKz

No it is not unlocked. I have had my S9+ since Feb with Verizon and have traveled to Australia. I purchased a prepaid SIM card from Telstra and put it in my S9+ and got the error, "SIM card is not from Verizon" or similar. I put the card in my wife's iPhone and it worked just fine.

What is annoying is that I called Verizon before I left the US and they assured me that 4G LTE phones were all unlocked and I should be fine in Australia. Simply not true!

The OP asked their question in 2018. The policy for device unlocking was changed in July 2019.
