Right now my HTC one is on a share everything contract with VZW, but I'm going to be moving to France for a year and I'm curious as to what my options are with it. I believe I read somewhere that if you buy out your contract the career can unlock the phone for you and you might be able to use it on French GSM careers like Orange or SFR.

Will VZW really unlock the phone if I buy out the contract? Will the unlocked VZW HTC One then work with French GSM carriers? Any other flaws in this plan that I'm missing?

If my One will work then I'd rather keep it, if not I suppose I'll grab an unlocked Nexus 5.

The SIM card slot is already unlocked so you can just pop in a new SFR or Orange SIM when you get to France

I can confirm this too that its already unlocked, I am using this phone in Karachi Pakistan on GSM carriers without any problem.

To be on safe side put your phone in global mode from settings / phone menu.

Best of Luck
