    No, well... Actually it already does. Only the radio built in does not support the North American frequencies. (The carriers do this on purpose) in essence the GSM portion of the device is only dual band and will only work in Asia or Europe.

    They have locked them down fairly well. People have been trying to hack them for over a year and have been unable to do so

    All one has has to do is call VZW's Tech Support (Global Support Team) & they'll unlock the SIM slot for you.

    Verizon 8830, here.

    Is there any way via the Status screen or other, that you can tell that the device is UNLOCKED for the sim card.

    I believe that I unlocked it but I never got the Verizon FAX to warn me about the consequences (or whatever it involved). So I was wondering if maybe they might have RE-engaged the sim lock again? I called them again but trying it again, we got an error message. It might be that the error was because it was already unlocked but I don't know and neither did the customer service rep.

    Thanks in advance.
