How Do I Know if my Verizon iphone 5 is Unlocked
Does the receipt say unlocked?
Try a different sim and see what happens.
All Verizon iPhone 5's are unlocked for GSM carriers outside of Verizon's network. However, if there is a CDMA carrier in the area it will take precedence.
What if i a specific country there is a CDMA carrier and GSM carrier?
If you want to use a CDMA carrier, you will have to purchase a phone made specifically for their network. You can not bring your own iPhone to any CDMA carrier.
If there is a CDMA carrier I believe it would default to roaming on that network rather than use the GSM carrier. That's the way the 4S worked, at least.
