Anyone purchased a smartphone from Verizon in the last month? Are they unlocked? Travelling international (EMEIA) and thinking about a Verizon plan if their phones come unlocked.

If you’re just going for a week or two, you can pay $10 a day to have full Call/Text/Data with your Verizon phone. I did it across Europe and it worked great


From my limited knowledge, the AT&T and T-Mobile phones are gsm only and the sprint and Verizon models are gsm/cdma (this applies for the iPhone 8 not sure about newer or older models)


No fee from T-Mobile. Literally just requested it two days ago to sell my old phone on eBay. It is paid off though


Yeah, iPhones come unlocked

I know my iPhone 8 on T-Mobile was not unlocked. I believe if they come from the Apple store they are unlocked. But T-Mobile will unlock it upon request if it’s paid off. Not sure about my new XR

Verizon and Sprint run on CDMA network. While AT&T and T mobile run on GSM. The majority of the world runs on GSM. So just check your unlocked phone can handle wherever you are traveling to

Yep, Verizon and sprint are GSM and CDMA (it’s required). You can ask your carrier to unlock it (probably for a fee) if you’d like. If you bought it from the Apple store, it’s already unlocked. Just pop a sim in there

Here. Verizon says they are unlocked

They are unlocked no matter what smart phones you have.

Thanks everyone.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Not seeing any other posts!

Can we consider ourselves safe if you haven't been fired before July? Since the base comp kicks in then? (I haven't had my CRT yet.. RP in some training..)

Losing a whole morning of productivity because your Dell is being a little bitch. 😡


Any 🐠 interview with or now work for MongoDB?


Moving to another country for grad school. Current firm has operations in the region, but my practice has no presence, so transferring is not an option. Due to visa status, I’m not eligible to work in the country. Thought is to secure a remote position with a company here in the states that is flexible regarding working hours; there is an 8-hour time difference. Has anyone experienced this? Recommendation on roles to look at? Background: software implementation, SC consulting, data analytics


I have a Camry that’s 55k miles/6 years old. Looking to get a new car. Would y’all recommend a Tesla ? Rising gas prices and impact to environment is making me go that route. Any feedback most welcome.


Can anyone see this?


Went to a top undergrad bschool(Wharton, Sloan, Ross, Stern), don't want to do consulting or banking after MBA. Is an MBA still worth it?


Those happily married for 10+ years - how? What’s the secret? I see lots of miserable married folks and don’t want to be anything like them.
