Hi slucas20, we would be happy to work with you in getting this device unlocked. There are a few requirements that must be met, the most important of which is that the phone needs to be active on a Verizon Wireless account. Are you able to send this phone back to the U.S. and have a friend or family member activate it for you? Or perhaps, will you be in the country and can activate it then? If you can, then our Global Support team at 800-711-8300 can unlock that SIM for your global use. Thanks for looking into this possibility!

Hi There. I would like to buy an Iphone 4s from a past Verizon subscriber who is now out of contract. I live in South Africa and want to use it on the Cell-C GSM-network. What is the procedure required to unlock the phone from Verizon?

Regards

Greg

I'm in Ukraine. Unlock is possible only after a phone call to the customer service? Is it possible to do it online? Please write an international number

Read the reply from the Verizon rep.

That is all the answers you both need.

Good Luck

Unfortunately this cannot be done.

That device is locked into Verizon wireless. No matter if you bought it anywhere else.

You have to be a present customer of Verizon Wireless. You registering for Verizon will do no good.

Verizon does not offer service in the Ukraine.

Best to buy a cell phone in your own country.

Good Luck
