How to get a sim card for an iPhone 5c while in UK?
mackne

I am studying abroad and want to get a sim card for my iPhone 5c while i am here. I know it needs to be unlocked in order to do so but I keep hearing the 5c is unlocked and then that its not through verizon? Also there are specialty shops here in the UK that say they can unlock the phone but will that affect me when I get home in a few months?

The Verizon iPhone 5c is a 4G LTE device and thus is already unlocked.

No further unlocking is needed for it to work with a UK SIM card.
