Verizon’s Lumia 928 is GSM Unlocked Out of the Box

According to multiple user reports, the newly released Lumia 928 on Verizon is shipping “sim unlocked” for GSm (4g not LTE) networks; meaning you can use it on At&t, T-mobile and other networks if you decide to travel. This is great news to everyone who is on the network (and has a 928) because it simply means that one “headache” of the carrier system in the US has been bypassed.

Got a chance to try it today..With an AT&T and T-Mobile micro sim.. After using the “Access point” app to apply the correct APN’s… it worked flawlessly (On HSPA 4G, not LTE)


Technically this also means that you could buy a Lumia 928 from Verizon off contract and use it on your network of choice (provided you’re willing to give up LTE), or you could even import it where-ever you are outside the US. Xenon goodness for everyone!
