To unlock your Verizon phone, follow these simple steps:
- Determine what type of Verizon phone you’re trying to unlock (postpay, prepaid, or global-ready 3G).
- Enter the correct code to unlock your Verizon phone: 000000 or 123456
Most Verizon 4G LTE phones are on postpay plans. If you purchased your device directly from Verizon or from a retailer, the device will be locked for 60 days. If your account is in good standing after the 60 days is up, the lock is removed by Verizon and you'll be able to insert a new SIM card.
But if your phone is from a Verizon prepaid plan or an iPhone 3G World Device, you’ll need to unlock your new phone.
