    can you use verizon iphone

    Since Verizon iPhones are factory unlocked, can they be used on airvoice and the APN modified so MMS works?
    Thanks

    MMS won't work on any iPhone with Airvoice since they are not an authorized Apple carrier. The SIM lock status is independent of the firmware, etc.

    I think I found the authorized list https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204039 but that leaves me even more confused. I currently have a verizon iphone 5s on Puppy Wireless who is not on the Apple list but I receive MMS. Isn't MMS basically just pictures that are texted? I also receive imessage texts.

    What am I missing?

    The MMS not working with non-Apple partners issue only affects AT&T MVNOs not Verizon ones like Puppy.
