    Verizon, doesn't sell phones with an unlocked bootloader. Additionally, their phones are also carrier locked until they are paid off.

    Before you connect to wifi or before you install your sim card .... Enable "developer option" then go into the "developer options" and scroll down till you see
    " OEM Unlocking" select it so the switch is on
    or slid to the right. Then unlock your bootloader reboot .... Again before you hook up to wifi or install sim go back and enable your "Developer options" then go into dev options and select "OEM Unlocking" so that its on again. Then hook up to what ever you want. Wifi, sim, whatever. Once bootloader is unlocked it can't be locked remotely by the carrier. So you'll be good.
