    nice article messany cant wait for this day wonder if it will be the next gen model or the iphone4 that we currently have. i wonder if this means if they unlock the verizon iPhone will it be used on Sprint like the AT&T iPhone is used on T-Mobile now. this could make the android-ios battle a lot more interesting

    "unlocking" CDMA phones and using them on another CDMA carrier while still getting full functionality is very difficult. CDMA phones are not like GSM phones, where as gsm phones share firmware and other features CDMA phones on each carrier have different firmware and model numbers and also different PRLs. I'm not saying it can't happen. It just won't near as easy as using AT&T phones on t mobile and vice versa.



    BTW to the people that complain about the articles, use another site if you don't like what modmyi has to say. IMO.

    Uh oh, March is a lot later than I would have hoped. We're looking to upgrade our plan and Android is in our sights...

    (I think I'll always have an iPod Touch, though)

    i was thinking the samething too,but most consumers outhere don't do their homework to know the different.

    Nowhere in the iPad announcement does it say anything about the iPhone... It's interesting that the author has lept to that conclusion.

    To those people saying that a CDMA iPhone would be unlocked and used on Sprint: The Verizon/Sprint systems that they use to activate new phones will not accept an ESN that is not already in their system. The computer will not allow the phone to be activated, even if you could get it unlocked (Worked for Sprint for 5 years)

    The only other carrier that could possibly use it is Cricket, but they will allow anything...even (in some places especially) stolen phones. But they would have to re-flash the firmware, and I'm not sure how that would work since Apple would undoubtedly want full control over the firmware.

    What would MMi be without a verizon rumor. We'd actually gone a while without hearing one form Messany. Ya he had one about CDMA but its been a lil bit since he gave us one so blatantly titled. I was starting to miss my daily entertainment.

    Don't think it will happen.

    And for all of you that are "sick" of seeing such rumors, I don't think anyone is making you read this or comment on it.

    Since we are playing the rumor mill... if this were all true, wouldn't it make more sense for Apple to make a CDMA version of the iPad right now since there is no exclusivity contract instead of using Verizon's inferior mobile hotspot unit bundled with the iPad they are selling? It seems if the gears are turning for CDMA iPhones we would see the ipad be the "test run" of the data usage before the phone hits. I suppose one could argue that Apple may want to save their CDMA antennas all for iPhones, but I would think they have plenty of time to get things rolling by now to supply enough parts for the iPad now and the rumored iPhone in the future.

    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    I read a data analyst's report that Verizon Android users use more data than AT&T's iPhone users with less Android users in total. So, basically what it said was that Verizon's data network is well beyond handling an influx of iPhones. This is going to suck big time for Android phone manufacturers.

    CDMA phones don't work that way. The cell company has to add your phone info into their system to work. You can't just adjust something and it work on the system. So it is up to the provider to say what phones they will allow on their system.
