    can I use my Verizon Iphone 5 in Ireland?

    I have a Verizon Iphone 5 and will travel to Ireland this summer. Can I buy a prepay sim in Ireland and use it in this phone?

    I would say no, afaik all carrier purchased phones are locked and you cannot use another sim however you might be able to convince verizon to unlock the phone if it is gsm and not CDMA

    Yes, you can. Verizon 5, 5c, and 5s come unlocked.

    The GSM side is unlocked.

    ^^ Disregard this post.

    Your Verizon iPhone 5 will work fine in Ireland (or anywhere else in Europe) with a local prepaid SIM card where the provider has coverage.

    Can the same be said for the Galaxy Note? Wife's heading to Dublin in July and has the same question.
    Thx!

    Any unlocked phone will work. All Verizon 5 are unlocked. If your note is locked just pay on eBay to unlock it.
