Default SIM unlock instructions

1. Might need to have...
a. account for longer then 90 days, and
b. bills payed.
c. Also, should have a Sense ROM for the Vivo_w.

2. Call Verizon Global Support @ 800-711-8300

3. Ask for SIM unlock code. (aka Subsidy Code)

4. Follow instructions given by Verizon below:

If customer has a Verizon Wireless SIM card in the Device:
Generate SIM Unlock code through GuardedLink
Go to: Settings -> Security -> Disable SIM card lock + Enter
Enter the SIM Unlock code when prompted.

If customer has non-Verizon Wireless SIM card in the Device:
Generate SIM Unlock code through GuardedLink
Have the customer power cycle the device
Enter the SIM Unlock code when prompted (This will occur when device is powering up)"

If you unlock it, it costs nothing. Just go overseas, buy a sim card, and pop it in your phone.

Carelessly swyped on my phone so there may be some weird typos
