The Verizon iPhone 4 does not use a sim card and therefore cannot be unlocked to be used by a GSM carrier.

The phone should have been unlocked in the United States when it was still active on a Verizon Wireless line of service. You must be a current Verizon Wireless customer and meet other requirements to qualify for the SIM unlock on Verizon Wireless devices.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Verizon will not unlock an iPhone 4S for use on a foreign carrier UNLESS it is currently active on a Verizon account.

I assume your friend is a Verizon customer who gave you his iPhone 4S? You should send the phone back to him/her, they can activate it on their account and get it unlocked. He/she can then re-activate their phone back on their account and send the iPhone back to you. You would then be able to use the device on a carrier in your country.

If you are unwilling/unable to do this, your best bet would be to sell the device(on ebay for example) to someone who would be able to use it.
