    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. For those wondering, no, the Verizon Note II isn't SIM unlocked.
    It is better to be pissed off than to be pissed on!
