[telecom] Verizon iPhone 5 Unlocked Thanks to FCC?


James Duncan Davidson September 24, 2012

Last Friday, Jeff Benjamin broke the news on iDownloadBlog that his Verizon iPhone 5 was unlocked. And not just unlocked for international use only-which Verizon has been offering for customers whose accounts have been in good standing for 60 days-but fully unlocked. As in works with domestic carriers like AT&T and Verizon unlocked. He even posted a video showing a cut-down AT&T Micro SIM in his Verizon iPhone 5 providing access to AT&T's network.

Jeff wasn't the only one. I've heard from a few other people that they've been able to use their iPhone 5 abroad. For example, Kris Koeller tweeted that he was able to drop a trimmed down Vodafone prepaid SIM he bought in Portugal (¤10 for 10GB of data!) into his brand new Verizon iPhone 5 and it worked just fine.

That, my friends, is kind of a big deal for iPhone customers here in the States.
