You need to get it unlocked.  Verizon will not unlock it for you unless you are an active Verizon customer.


Search out a third party unlocker and purchase an unlocking code from them.

I have an Verizon account, and sim card too. I live 7 month in Turkey and 5 month in USA. I can't use my phone in Turkey with verizon sim card and also Turkish Carrier sim card cause my phone doesn't simfree. I mean its locked from Verizon.

I called Global Service yesterday. She says it's ok, your phone is unlocked now and you can use your phone with any sim card the way you want. I asked her to -"Should I restoring my device from itunes?" and she says, no not need to restore your device.

And now, I am not able to use my verizon or Turkish Carrier sim card in my phone. The "No Service" text on corner of the phone screen. What must I do?

MustafaSepici, that sounds very exciting to live in Turkey for five months per year. You will need to reactivate that device by connecting to iTunes. Do you have access to WiFi? Here's the steps on how to activate that device on our network in the U.S. http://vz.to/17L81ef
