I am hoping that someone out there has had some recent experience and give me some info....I am traveling to London for the first time in about 2 weeks. I recently got a iPhone 5s (wanted the samsung galaxy note 3, rep said it would NOT work abroad-??) from Verizon and was told 1-that the phone is unlocked and 2-I could use a SIM card from a local carrier in London to avoid massive data fees. The more I read on line and conflicting info I get from verizon, I am really worried my phone will not work with another SIM card. Has anyone used a local carriers SIM card in ANY verizon phone and what was the outcome?
