    Default Can Sprint iphone 4s work on GSM Network if the phone unlocked?
    Hello,

    friend of my gave me a iphone 4s under sprint network and I'd like to use this phone on GSM network such as T-mobile, straight talk or AT&T. Question is if I have this phone unlocked, does it work on all GSM network ? what I heard the sprint iphone 4s has dual CDMA and GSM network built-in but I wonder how it works
    has anyone try this ?

    You can unlock it with a gevey sim.
    Sprint will actually unlock it too under certain conditions but they only unlock it to work with GSM carriers outside of the US, so it wouldnt help you to use it with ATT or Tmobile. Gevey sim is really your only option.
