    This may have been posted already but I did not see it. This video of a guy that I follow on YouTube says that the Verizon iPhone five is unlocked out of the box. http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=m-feedu&v=Usr9rp5VUVs I personally will never use this feature but some of the other members on the form might enjoy it. If anyone else can confirm this please reply to this thread as I think it will be very beneficial to other members.

    Just a warning, It still is all related to how the AT&T / Verizon iPhone 5 units are processed at the POS from the Apple retail store.

    It the Apple rep enters your phone number on the checkout screen, it will be locked to the carrier even if you pay the no-commitment price.

    Make sure that they do a "Device Only" sale on their POS device.

    Also note there are still differences between the AT&T and the Verizon/Sprint units support of LTE.

    Just got off the phone with the Verizon rep while awaiting mine in the mail today.

    She confirmed that the Verizon iPhone 5 comes GSM Unlocked out of the box! That makes it a plug n play GSM World Phone for nano SIM cards. The video looks a bit sketch, will wait for a proper tutorial or cutting template to do it the right way and try out for myself :-D
