Hope this sums it up lol

    I did not know you could do that. Here I am thinking that at least some carrier's SIM had to be in the phone for it to operate. Wow.

    Nope since the phone is programmed into VZW, so the only reason I would use VZW SIM card is if they had towers over sea which they dont lol, so i can give my SIM to a GSM user and they can pick up VZW signal

    Are there any other resources being freed up by not having the SIM card in?

    Spider if you have your account with VZW for 3 months and call international customer support and tell them you're traveling to a country not supported by them they will give you the unlock code free of charge. That is how I did and now my Storm is fully unlocked.
