Something about the prepaid division being seen as a separate company or something makes it kosher. I haven't experienced it myself, so I may have been mislead.

They are locked. Can be unlocked after 12 months of prepaid service. You can't even use them on regular Verizon account. Verizon is getting smart.

Rampant misinformation. Verizon prepaid phones are unlocked for other carriers, but require a $45 fee to be used on Verizon postpay.
There was a glitch with the Moto E but that does not apply to this phone.

4G Device Policy We do not lock our 4G devices, other than our 4G Phone-in-the-Box Prepaid phones. In order to partially offset the subsidy we provide to make our 4G Phone-in-the-Box Prepaid phones more affordable to service customers, our 4G Phone-in-a-Box phones may only be used with Verizon Prepaid service for 1 year from original activation date or until payments in the amount specified on the back of the Phone-in-a-Box package are added to the Prepaid account. Once either of these criteria is satisfied, you can contact us at *611 from your Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone, or (888) 294-6804, and we will provide you with programming instructions so you can unlock your phone. If the user guide for your phone does not provide instructions to access the programming menu, we can help you with that as well
