I can answer your question, rlaurents!

4G LTE devices come pre unlocked. The iPhone 4S is a 3G device, and will need to be unlocked by our global team. If you are a Verizon Wireless customer with an active account, you may be eligible to have your device unlocked. You can find out by calling our Global Support Team at 800-711-8300.

I had to buy another unlocked phone to send back with her.  I am upset for the untruth.  I want the out of contract phone unlocked so I can now sell on eBay and recoup some of the money spend on additional phone. I would hate to leave Verizon, but .....
