The guys over iDB have confirmed independently that Verizon iPhone 5 is GSM unlocked and can be used with any other GSM SIM around the nation.
Jeff of iDownloadblog able to cuts down his AT&T micro SIM to the new Nano-SIM design, and able to put it in his Verizon iPhone 5 to test whether the new shinny iPhone 5 is locked or not. The result of test is positive for the Verizon lovers, as they will able to carry the iPhone 5 around the nation easily and can use any GSM with it. However, according to Jeff, the AT&T 4G LTE network also works cool on the Verizon iPhone, but it didn’t provide the high speed as AT&T advertise on its network to overcome other networks.
On getting reports from the Jeff, we have confirmed from Verizon the iPhone 5 is unlocked, and can be used with any other GSM SIM, even if the phone is under contract with the carrier.
