    after reading about the Library of Congress' ruling on unlocking phones (Unlocking Cellphones Becomes Illegal Saturday | TechNewsDaily.com), I am curious about unlocking the razr maxx. I thought I remember seeing something about the razr maxx with the ICS being unlocked? Just curious, because the window for being able to legally unlock a phone is closing soon (26th). Thanks,

    after reading in several other discussion forums - it looks like since the ICS upgrade, the sim card (ie GSM) is unlocked for global use. I haven't found anything definitive on whether the phone can be used on any other (GSM) domestic carriers with the right frequency bands

    Nope. Not unless you will get verizon to give you the unlock codes, which won't happen.

    ive always been able to get the unlock codes by saying i'm travelling to the UK and want to use an O2 or Vodafone pay as you go SIM in it.

    Well you don't need unlock codes to travel to the UK with a world phone just need a prepaid sim from there.

    But you're not gonna get them to let you use a domestic carrier other than Verizon, it just won't happen.

    Doesn't matter anyway, cause I'm pretty sure the razr won't work on domestic gsm frequencies anyway

    Right now I'm visiting in Israel with my Verizon Razr Maxx on Jelly Bean. I am using a local SIM (GSM/UMTS) for voice and data, and it works perfectly.

    Did you have to contact Verizon first to get them to enable the global ability? Or did you just go to Israel and pop in a SIM card? I'm traveling soon and want to purchase a local SIM card. Verizon's prices are a HUGE ripoff.

    Could you share please what provider was local SIM from? I've just got negative experience with cellcom. My razr naxx said "sim from unknown source", allowed me to make and receive calls, but could'n get any GSM/UMTS data connection... System s/w is up-to-date (4.1.2).
