The Verizon version of the iPhone 4 is not global ready. It doesn't have the right hardware installed.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Thank you Ann154 for providing information. mctraveler93 I can confirm Ann154 is correct, the iPhone 4 is not a global device. We do offer a global travel program, in which you can rent a global device for international usage. Please review additional information here http://vz.to/JIgOXu Thank you.
