Your phone is already unlocked for non-USA use, and VzW **WILL NOT**, under any circumstances, unlock it for domestic use (AT&T/T-Mobile).

If you want to take a VzW iPhone5 to AT&T/T-Mobile, you're on your own for unlocking services, good luck.

Hey sfrederick!

Wait just one second. What's all this talk about leaving Verizon Wireless for another carrier? We're simply not prepared to lose you so I'd love an opportunity to save your business.

To answer your original question, your iPhone 5 is designed specifically for use on our network so it cannot be used on a different carrier domestically. But still, what's got you thinking of taking off? Please share so I can address any outstanding concerns you have.

Hey, EvanO - Outstanding concerns?  How about a scam!  I own my phone, having completed my 2-year contract with Verizon.  But the phone is a hostage of Verizon!  T-mobile has great pricing - I really wanted to take advantage of it.  But Verizon still thinks they own a piece of my phone.  We can only hope that the "Unlocking Technology Act" passes the Senate - the House has already passed a version of it.  I am in my LAST contract with Verizon - even if they drop pricing once this bill passes.

I too want my iPhone 4S (I have 3) unlocked.  I have a current account and the contract is expired. I have no intention of leaving Verizon.
