    Hi. My understand is that to keep the X unlocked, I need to insert a Verizon SIM, connect to iTunes, get the carrier update, restart and then have the ability to switch sims at will, forever and ever, amen. Is this accurately?

    I just inserted the vz sim before powering on. Took a few tries to activate as the activation server is probably overloaded. Then went through the rest of the setup process on the phone. No need to connect to itunes or do a carrier update.

    You are correct.
    Activate first with a verizon sim and then you're done and unlocked for good.

    No need for iTunes, the Carrier Update is Over the Air (OTA). If you don't have a Verizon SIM handy you can use your other carrier SIM and if you paid full price they will unlock it.
