Verizon Said That The iPhone 5 Will Remain Unlocked

Posted Sep 24, 2012

As of this past Friday Verizon has been selling the iPhone 5 in a factory unlocked package, which allows people to use the phone on any GSM carrier overseas and on competitor networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. Some people think that Verizon was awesome for setting up the sales of the device in that format, but others believe that it was a slight oversight, but will be undone in a software update.  However Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney said that they do not plan on locking the iPhone 5.  Verizon users should be happy about this news.
