Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform is seeing a surge in interest now that the WP operating system has leveled up, but as these things usually go, each U.S. carrier seems to have a phone or two that's exclusive to them. And if you've had your eye on the HTC Windows Phone 8X, that might be unfortunate if you aren't a Verizon Wireless subscriber. The 8X can only be had from VZW, but there's some good news here: the phone is being sold unlocked. Precisely as with Verizon's iPhone 5, users can buy the 8X and then pop a T-Mobile or AT&T SIM card into it and receive service.

This seems to be something of a trend with VZW selling unlocked phones, even on contract, and we surely hope that it carriers over to more carriers. After all, who likes to be locked in?

Is it just me or is Verizon the best in the States?

As far as coverage, I beleive it is. It tends to cost a bit more.
