The Verizon SIM unlocking process doesn't require you to firstly root your Android device, thus any Moto E 2015 whether it's rooted or not, are eligible to unlock it. And it's free. And we will use an app developed by XDA developers, you should thank them for all they've done in delivering this wonderful app.
