Can the iPhone 5 be unlocked?

I want to go to the Dominican Republic this Summer, and I want to be able to use my cell phone over there, but could I unlock it to use a different sim card?

Re: Can the iPhone 5 be unlocked?

I believe all the 4g LTE phones are supposed to be unlocked already.  I had a serious issue with the Galaxy s3 not being really unlocked, but I've not heard of issues with the iPhone5.

Find someone with another carrier and an iPhone, and see if their nanosim will work (preferably before your trip).
