    Although Verizon phones are unlocked, when using a SIM from a local provider in England, text messaging doesn't work (voice and data work fine). It has something to do with the firmware - the message center number in the phone is tied to Verizon. I have heard that this problem is unique to Verizon; the same phone purchased through Sprint or AT&T would not have presented this problem.

    Yes, vzw likes to do what they can to lock that device to their network. Some vzw phones have a special kernal assigned by vzw.
