I take it all back Verizon...
Having suffered through Verizon's strange attitude towards GPS, Bluetooth, etc, etc, over the years, I have to say: I take it all back!
Well, at least most of it.
For those who don't know, the SIM card on the TP2 is locked to only function out of the U.S. However, if you want to travel overseas and use a foreign purchased SIM card, the phone will not work unless unlocked. So what do you do?
You call Verizon and tell them of your plans to travel overseas and use a third-party SIM card. They will issue an unlock code and voila! The SIM slot is now unlocked for overseas cards (and apparently U.S. cards too.) I'm sure this is old news to everyone, but I went ahead and had it done tonight and there were no questions asked.
Though, I do wonder, do you actually have to register the Verizon SIM card for each country you visit? The global support person wanted to reg my SIM for the UK (where I may visit) but I thought it would work without having to do anything before hand.
With GPS that locks in seconds and a $100 price tag for the phone after rebate, I really have to take it all back about Verizon. And it could be a lot worse: I could be in the Bay Area with an AT&T-based iPhone!
