If it was on verizon postpaid for 60 days or more, and has been paid off, it should already be automatically unlocked.  Do you know that it isn't?

That is a great question, and we can certainly try to assist. We would need to take a look at the account in order to make sure that the phone is unlocked. The general rule of thumb is our unlock policy located here: https://www.verizon.com/about/privacy/consumer-safety/device-unlocking-policy. *Gert
