I'm about to sign up with Ting, and I'd like to get the Galaxy S4. However, there's a good chance that I'll spend time in Europe, and while there I'll want to use a SIM I buy there.
Evidently, the S4 that Ting sells comes with locked SIM (see, for instance, https://help.ting.com/entries/24127622-World-phone-aka-phone-with-GSM-and-accessible-sim-card-slot- ). That thread suggests that I buy a Motorola Photon from Ting -- unfortunately, it appears Ting no longer sells these.
But many phones sold locked can be unlocked. Is this true of the S4? Does anyone know of a world phone with unlockable SIM?
To ask a question that probably displays a great deal of ignorance: once you root an android phone, does that allow you to unlock the SIM?
