    Aloha Forum,

    My wife and I will be traveling to Japan at the end of summer to help with relief work ( www.facebook.com/lovebirdsapparel :eek:ur apparel fundraiser) and we would like to know what you guys think. Our friends said that we should unlock our iPhone 4 so we can use it over there. How do we go about doing this? Sorry for the totally n00b question, couldn't find another thread about the iP4V. Mahalo for you help!

    the Verizon iPhone cannot be unlocked since it is CDMA

    you can use it but you will still be using Verizon wireless, but roaming on whatever carriers are there

    CDMA Standard Roaming Per Minute Rate: $1.99
    CDMA Value Plan Roaming Per Minute Rate: $1.99

    Data will not work though
