Is My Phone Locked or Not?
amirhossein_70

One of my friend bought an iPhone 6 from New York AppleStore with Verizon service. (he bought it about 800$)

I live in a country that is not supported by Verizon.

Can I Activate it and use it with my own sim card ?

Is this phone locked to Verizon or not?

Thanks

Verizon iPhone 6 bought with Verizon service in New York Apple Store will be unlocked. So, yes you can put your own SIM in this phone in another country and it will work.

Great question! VZW does not lock most phones or tablets that are activated with our standard monthly service, either during or after a customer’s contract term. You won't be able to activate it with VZW but you may be able to use a sim card to use in your country.
