    Default Is the SIM slot fully GSM unlocked?

    So the Verizon iPhone 5 and now confirmed HTC 8X are fully SIM unlocked and you can throw a AT&T and T-Mo SIM in them and use them on those networks. Verizon had said that after the iPhone 5 any LTE phone coming out would also be fully SIM unlocked. Can someone throw in a AT&T or T-Mo SIM and test it out?

    Yes, i would love to know this too before I plunk down $700 for it. Those with the VZW Note 2, please grab a GSM sim card from a friend and let us know. Thanks!!

    Awesome! This will be my last contract phone with VZW and I'm looking to to possibly take this and my wife's iPhone 5 to AT&T in the future. (AT&T HSPA+ is more than fine for me).

    There is a thread on XDA that suggests that the APN cannot be changed. What we need is someone to verify whether 3G data from a different provider's SIM card works overseas.

    I tried a T-Mobile SIM moments ago and it doesn't work. http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...ml#post2395987
