    If I buy this, will it be unlocked for international travel?

    http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPhone-MD440LL-Smartphone-Refurbished/dp/B00YV051EU

    What's a good price for an unlocked 4, preferably refurbished, in excellent condition these days?

    It's no problem if it's locked to a US carrier, I would use it internationally as a cheap secondary phone / cheap iPod Touch replacement for music, nothing fancy.

    Is the latest released iOS 7 of acceptable speed on iPhone 4 at least?

    It specifically says Locked to Verizon, so you will not be able to use it internationaly.

    Only as a cheap, old, iPod Touch. Thanks, though!

    Verizon iPhone 4 is CDMA only. It does not have GSM radio anyway.

    I believe that the verizon iPhone 4 model does not have a sim card slot (While the 4S does), so you would need an account with verizon in order to activate the iPhone.

    If you don't want to use it as a phone it should work, I don't think apple still requires cell service to use it as an iPod. But you'd be much happier with an actual iPod touch and they aren't that expensive.

    $75 vs. $200. Sure, the Touch is a nice device, but I can't justify its price for what I's use it, vs iPhone 4.
