    It's CDMA only, so there is no SIM card. And with no sim card, you can't easily switch to another carrier. It is possible to use it on another carrier if you can convince that carrier to let you, but that's not likely and I'm not sure that it would work.

    Technically it can be unlocked but the unlock hasn't been released. The only problem with unlocking the VZW iP4 is that customizations have to be made for the specific carrier you want to run it on. It's not like the GSM iP4 in that you can just swap sims and it will work. This makes unlocks for the CDMA version much harder and more work and also not as user friendly.

    For now you can't unlock it but in the future you might be able to. I think there was an article on macrumors.com about it shortly after the VZW iP4 was released.

    I was thinking of using it with a prepaid Verizon thing I have.

    Even if the unlock was out you wouldn't be able to use it with verizon as pre-pay unless verizon offered that plan. That is one advantage of a sim card.

    Well now you know that isn't going to happen. Wanna tell us again about your prepaid plan or are you good?
