I am new to this site and am unschooled in matters Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I can't really figure out why, since I own this phone can't I take it to another carrier or place like Straight Talk so I can get the prepay plan I want? I have read alot of stuff but dont get what the bottom line issue is? Can't I just take out the Sim card and swap another one from another carrier? Do I get it unlocked thru the IME # and that's all? I am perfectly happy to pay the termination fee. What are the barriers to doing this and how can I overcome them? It pisses me off if I can't do anything about this!!
