    I was wondering if the icon is factory unlocked like most phones from Verizon recently?

    You can use it with every GSM carrier but you can only get HSPA+ not LTE/4G

    Verizon phones are GSM unlocked.

    What about CDMA networks, is the ICON factory unlocked on other CDMA networks.

    i.e. i want to use in on a CDMA network abroad, is it going to works, (voice and date)?

    Kindly help.

    As I understand it, only GSM is unlocked. The CDMA section of the phone is locked. Never mind if you trying to use it "over the pond" on a CDMA network(Japan for example), I would bet it would not work anyway. Verizon's CDMA is different from the rest of the world's CDMA.... Japan uses a different CDMA standard and they are not compatible. If your talking about using it on Sprint in the US, it will not work, locked.

    I remember reading about this a while ago, unless something changed in the last few years, this should be correct.

    Not sure if this sheds any light, but recently we traveled to China, where there are both GSM and CDMA networks. My wife's Verizon iPhone 4, which is CDMA-only, surprisingly worked fine. We did not expect this and took no action to unlock it, so it must have been unlocked already.

    If you were using a US number when you were in china then you were just using the roaming agreements, so locking is irrelevant.
    4g phones arent locked, 3g phones you just need to call global support and ask to unlock them.

    FYI I'm using my Cricket Wireless US SIM card on my Verizon Lumia Icon. Icon was locked.
