    hey guys
    today i recevied verizon a1429 cdma model iphone 5.
    currently using it with at&t prepaid sim card.

    i heard all the verizon iphone 5s are unlocked and compatible with any other carriers sim.
    at the first time i put my att sim card in it, i was not allowed to access internet, it said i do not subscribe data features even I do. so I googled and change my apn settings through unlockit.co.nz and it's working now.

    i'm so confused that my phone is unlocked or not.
    i also did imei check and it says it's sim-locked but i was able to make a phone call&text before change the apn settings with att sim card.

    anyone have an idea?

    You're able to use it on AT&T. It's unlocked.

    If your phone is locked, you won't get ANYTHING when you put an unsupported SIM into the phone.

    The fact that you have been able to get it working shows that your phone is unlocked.

    yea but the weird thing is i cannot access 3g....without apn change
    i saw some youtube video that they just switch sim card and access call, text, and 3g
