Means that you can put in a diff sim, not locked to VZW sim.
Without the sim, you wont have VZW LTE

The SIM being removed doesn't mean it unlocked. It likely removed so it can't be activated onto the account its associated with.

You need the SIM inserted for LTE to work if you will be using Verizon. Since the SIM was removed you will need a replacement one.

Interesting. How much do the replacement sims usually go for?

What does the old thread with no indication of box opened make any difference.

The OP is selling them thru PM, and he will share the details when you PM him.

If you expect to get a factory unlocked phone that was never tied to any carrier, expect to pay retail price.

The OP is clearly stating that they are Verizon phones, that come unlocked

oh wow seems like he has a fan club..
 I am simply saying that it is dishonest to sell "brandnew" phones that come in almost new condition
without telling people that the boxes are opened.
If the fan club is so convinced that this is normal there should be no reason for a seller not to disclose this small piece of important information

Also I did not expect a factory unlocked phone as the thread was clearly started about Verizon phone.
My complaint is about the open box dishonesty

Dishonest would mean you were told it wasn't opened. Now I agree that maybe you should have been aware but in wouldn't call it dishonest.

Personally I would have asked before purchasing from any online seller.

Listen,
I know you are all trained to attack every word that anyone says from your many years of sitting in front of a gemara.
But it is misleading...  it doesnt matter what word we use to describe it...
 geneivas daas applies when one misleads someone.
Call it what you want...

I am sorry for expecting someone to be more straightforward about what they are selling amongst the DDF community

@yakovwogi: Other than the open box, was the phone brand new as in unused?

PS
Did not mean to blow this out of proportion..
this started as an innocent question about the boxes of these phones...

look anybody that pm me i usualy talk to them over the phone and i tell them that i get this phones directly from verizon NEVER USED not even turned on ( check if your battery plastic on the bb10 is opened) just need to remove sim cards as no contract is taken with the phone sim card are sealed in the box so box its opend for sim removal only!!!  (for the real geek knowledge its done with gloves and on a anti-static table)
SO anybody that feels geneivas daas is more then happy to address is this with me.... u cant find this deal any where and complaining after making a nice return on your investment is not nice....
i sell it at cost price u dont need to buy it if u dont want nobody forced u to
