one rep told me you CAN unlock it, but the unlocking feature just lets you use the phone overseas with any SIM card, not in the States. (so you could get a pre-paid TMO, or other Service that uses a SIM card instead of being on your Verizon/VODAPHONe SIM) But you need to purchase a VERIZON SIM for them to unlock it.
