    I have a new phone and am trying to get the unlock code from Verizon for my Galaxy Samsung s5 phone.

    One Verizon rep told me the Galaxy s5 phone is not locked.

    Another rep told me that I didn’t need to have it unlocked and when overseas just put another carriers Sim card in the phone and it should work.

    So my question is, is the Verizon Galaxy s5 phone locked or not?

    Thanks for the reply Jfalls63, it looks as if the phone should work in the UK.

    So how do I remove the pre installed Verizon apps that are locked?

    There is a paid app at the Play Store called Package Disabler pro that will let you disable pre installed apps that you normally could not without root. Definitely worth the price

    Root required to un-install but Package Disabler pro will disable them and remove them from the app drawer so you never have to see them or be pestered for updates

    Another tip is that sometimes SMS doesn't work well on verizon's unlocked phone. Search for problems on Galaxy S4 SMS issue with verizon phone on other carrier.
