New iPhone on Installment: Unlocked after 60 days? Or 2 years?

If I purchase an iPhone 13 on an installment plan (say, 24 months) with trade in credit (say, $800) and I make payments on time and account is in good standing, will it be unlocked 60 days after I receive the phone? Or will it only be unlocked once I've paid off the phone in full (i.e. either I lose my $800 trade in credit or wait 24 months)? Finally, Is this the same for business and personal lines? I have received contradictory answers from multiple Verizon representatives, so I would love this answered once and for all.

The official policy is their Device Unlocking Policy. It is linked below.

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