iPhone 4s international unlock questions
January 16, 2012 9:13 AM Subscribe
I just had my Verizon iPhone 4s unlocked for international use and confirmed working with two different foreign SIM cards. Three questions:
- Is this permanent? Can it ever be re-locked via software or some other method?
- Can this be used with US SIM cards, or are there restrictions?
- Is this phone now identical to an unlocked iPhone, or is it somehow different?

Probably not pertinent, but I am going to be using this exactly as Verizon allows: Verizon at home, swapping in the foreign SIM when traveling overseas once or twice a year. I am asking this question out of curiosity and potential after the two year contract expires.
