Well... that does suck, but if Verizon's signal is weak in your area, why did you re-extend your contract? AFAIK Verizon unlocking the global SIM already in the phone will not enable it to roam on GSM networks in the USA on that same SIM - I could be mistaken, but I think that the previous successes of getting to roam on North American GSM have been using a SIM from a GSM provider.
