Right... But you get your unlock code from Verizon directly. And the 30 second disclaimer they read you is all about them not being responsible for the charges you will incur on somebody else's network. The Verizon Global Services Rep who gave me the code didn't say anything at all about it having any affect on my warranty, and I don't see how it could. His biggest concern seemed to be that I didn't have the foreign SIM with me, so he had to have me write down the process instead of walking me through it right then. (Like it's that hard).
