Buy Verizon Iphone 5s Unlocked



Unlocked: No matter where purchased or at what price, ALL Verizon iPhone 5S models and iPhone 5C models are unlocked right out of the box. Even if they are bought from Verizon or 3rd party retailers at the subsidized price. Can never be carrier locked. The is due to an FCC requirement for Verizon LTE phones.




buy verizon iphone 5s unlocked



When i try to put SIM card from another carrier it says SIM card not valid and that it is not from the supported service provider and i cant contact you throught the phone because i am not in USA and i dont have verizon SIM card


The phone is bought in USA i spoke with different carrier and they said only the carrier that locked the phone can unlock it so if you can just send me instructions to my e - mail on how to unlock my iphone it would be nice


I'm wondering if it makes more sense to buy a Verizon iPhone 5s, just in case T-Mobile's service is unacceptable. I know that Verizon phones come unlocked, due to the terms of a recent spectrum purchase, but I don't know whether that applies only to the 3G bands. I also know that if I buy an unlocked T-Mobile iPhone, Verzion will not allow it to be used on their service.


iPhone 5 owners who opted for the Verizon model have discovered the device ships with an unlocked nano-SIM card slot, even if the device was bought under contract at a subsidized rate and did not pay the full unlocked price. This is excellent news for travelers or for anyone who wants to immediately get access to an unlocked iPhone 5 without waiting for them to be officially available.


Your iPhone might be locked to your carrier. Unlocking your iPhone means that you can use it with different carriers. To contact your carrier and unlock your iPhone, use these steps. You can find out if your iPhone is locked by going to Settings > General > About. If "No SIM restrictions" appears next to Carrier Lock, your iPhone is unlocked.


iDownloadBlog has confirmed that the Verizon iPhone 5 being sold on contract does arrive unlocked for use on GSM networks, allowing users with a nano-SIM or a trimmed micro-SIM from a GSM carrier such as AT&T to use the device on their networks.


Will a sprint prepaid phone, or any prepaid phone work on Us Mobile? if I bought a semi-new(condition new, but manufactured two years ago) on Amazon and inserted your SIM card would it work? Can a locked phone be unlocked by Us Mobile? How do I tell if a phone is locked?


Your phone should support 2G/3G service provided that it is fully unlocked. 2G/3G and 4G/LTE are technologies which provides internet to phones. You can use your phone for talk, text and data speeds of up to 2G/3G.


Hey,thanks for getting in touch, Lansing and the surrounding areas of Ithica should have decent coverage, however to get a better idea, if possible send us the complete address at [email protected] and we can look further into this. Also, if your ATT LG G3 is GSM unlocked from ATT, it should work fine. Let us know if we can help further =)


Hi ? This should work fine with our GSM LTE service as long as it is unlocked and you have coverage in your area. Please feel free to reach out to us via email on [email protected] so our support team can guide you better.


Jitterbug phones if unlocked should work with our service provided there is coverage in your area. Please feel free to reach out to us via email on [email protected] so our support team can guide you better.


Scroll down to locate the Network Provider Lock section. If the iPhone is unlocked, it should say that there is No SIM restrictions. Should you see a different status, this means that the iPhone is locked.


In this edition of Ask Maggie, I re-examine this issue and offer some basic information about what a cell phone lock is. I explain on which wireless networks cell phones can be unlocked. And I caution consumers to investigate before they buy a device they think is unlocked.


Generally, the only devices that do not have carrier locks are ones that specifically say they are "unlocked," such as the Google Android Nexus brand of devices, the unlocked version of the iPhone, which is sold at the Apple store, and some developer edition devices. If you want an unlocked phone, you should research in advance whether the phone you are purchasing is available as unlocked and where you can buy it as an unlocked device. Remember: Paying full price alone doesn't guarantee that a smartphone is unlocked out of the box.


All GSM devices are designed so that service is provisioned using a SIM card. With an unlocked device, a GSM smartphone can be reprovisioned and used on another network simply by popping out the old SIM card and putting in a new one from the new carrier. The carrier doesn't necessarily need to be notified, and you don't need anyone in the store to reprovision your phone.


In summary, phone locks are not really relevant when you're talking about 2G and 3G devices that operate on CDMA or EV-DO networks. But phone locks are very important for devices that operate on a GSM or HSPA/HSPA+ network. Almost every GSM device comes "prelocked" to a particular carrier. Certain phones are sold unlocked. And if you have a device that is locked, you can get it unlocked from your wireless carrier if you meet certain criteria, which includes paying the full price of your device or ending your contract and being in good standing with your service provider.


Remember that in the U.S., Verizon and Sprint customers use either a Verizon or Sprint CDMA network. The GSM radio is included in these phones so that subscribers can roam onto networks in Europe and other parts of the world. Verizon and Sprint subscribers can choose either to sign up for international roaming plans with their U.S. carrier when they travel, or, if they can get their devices unlocked, they can swap out the SIM, put in a SIM card from a local provider, and get new service that way.


Verizon 4G LTE devices are unlocked out of the box One thing to note here in terms of software phone locks is that all Verizon 4G LTE smartphones come unlocked out of the box. The reason why is that the spectrum Verizon is using to build its 4G LTE network had restrictions put on it by the Federal Communications Commission, which required the company to allow "open access" to the network. So as part of this provision, Verizon has decided not to lock those devices. That said, its 3G devices are locked.


So what does this mean for the average consumer? Let's take the iPhone 5 as an example. It's a 4G LTE device. A Verizon version of this phone comes unlocked out of the box. There aren't special codes that need to be entered in order to use it on another carrier's network. But because of the spectrum differences I mentioned above, a Verizon iPhone 5 won't operate on AT&T's LTE network. It will operate on AT&T's 3G network, which is based on GSM. So this means you can use the Verizon iPhone on AT&T, but you won't get the fastest Internet speeds on it.


What are the explicit differences between a locked and unlocked phone? The difference between a locked and an unlocked phone is that a locked device has a software code on it that prevents you from taking a GSM-based device and using it on another GSM carrier's network. An unlocked phone either doesn't have the lock software on it or someone was able to get a code that unlocks the software. Once a device is unlocked, you can pop out the SIM card and put in a different SIM from another GSM operator and get service. Remember that this issue of locked and unlocked phones today is really only relevant when you're talking about devices made for GSM networks. It doesn't really apply to CDMA-only devices or for swapping out SIM cards for LTE networks. As I explained above, most carriers use different frequencies and band plans for their LTE networks, so even without a software lock on the device, it still won't operate on these networks. That will soon change, but for now don't expect unlocked LTE devices to perform at top speeds on any other carrier's LTE network.


Why is the iPhone treated differently by carriers relative to other phones? In the past, the iPhone was treated differently than other devices when it came to lock codes. For instance, AT&T was happy to unlock any other phone you owned, but according to its policy, the iPhone could never be unlocked. The reason for this was because AT&T didn't want people buying the popular phone and going to another carrier, whether that was T-Mobile or an overseas operator. So to control how and where the device was used, it refused to unlock it.


Also, as I've mentioned, you can get a special code to unlock the software from AT&T so long as you meet the company's requirements. The same is true if you have a Verizon 3G device that supports GSM network technology. But if you have an LTE device from Verizon, you don't need an unlock code. The device is already unlocked.


Another way to get an unlocked phone is to buy one that's specifically advertised as unlocked. For instance, Google's Nexus series of smartphones come unlocked. They're built and configured in such a way as to allow any GSM SIM to be used in them. The international unlocked version of the iPhone is also sold without a lock. And again it can be used on any GSM network. (This means that neither the Nexus series phones nor the unlocked iPhone can be used on Verizon or Sprint's CDMA voice or data networks.)


Your vacation dilemma As for what you should do while you're on vacation in Minnesota, so long as your iPhone is unlocked and supports GSM, you should be able to use an AT&T SIM card in it. So use the existing SIM card you've used in the past or buy a prepaid SIM from AT&T and pop it into your unlocked iPhone.


As I said, the iPhone 5 on Verizon is already unlocked out of the box. So you should be able to use any AT&T SIM card in that device and get service. If you want to do this on the cheap, make sure you turn off all the data functions on the iPhone, and you'll just be able to use the voice network. 041b061a72
