Verizon Galaxy phones for international use

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – Hi, I'm new, but I'm in the process of deciding on a smartphone or 4G tablet and wanted to ask some questions. I need a device that uses Verizon's data network because I work in Yellowstone during the summers and that's the only network that works out there. I'm headed to Australia in October and want to use my device with a local SIM card. Questions: --Are the Verizon Samsung devices unlocked (S3, Note II, S4) if purchased at full retail price? --Is there any way to use a Verizon prepaid data (tablet) plan on these devices? I'm not interested in voice/text, only data. Thanks (HowTos)
