    It would e the same since it is all the samedevice. Currently, jailbreaking an AT&T phone is no different than jailbreaking one on another network, like O2 or Rogers.

    I think verizon is the only one that will have more coverage, since it can run on CDMA and gsm. AT&T however, can only use gsm, to my knowledge, and will have the same coverage worldwide.

    Are you kidding? Just look at the response this recent IMEI remote unlocking service roused--including U.S.A. IF ip5 will be all factory unlocked (which I doubt), a lot of users will be lining up for the upgrade and much fewer people will JB, IMHO.

    very cool. The most important thing is that we can sell our used iphones easier now.

    I just might upgrade my i4 to a i5... If the rumors are true... Higher memory storage, edge to edge screen, better camera, faster maybe dual core processor, more ram, titanium/metal back, and now universal (saw this coming though... It'll be dumb if they didn't...), this sounds like a pretty solid update if you look at it...

    That sorta explains a few things IMO a model thats a bit delayed from the summer launch and a bit early off the CDMA launch in jan. They won't piss as many American customers sucks for me though I was expecting to pick the 5 up after launch around august. I do hoPe it's a significant improvement.

    I think this is a pretty cool idea but wouldnt this create a monopoly of some sort? Assuming I'm interpreting correctly, you're saying that AT&T and Verizon customers will be able to access the same towers, thus creating the largest interlinking network in the world? Essentially making AT&T and Verizon virtually the same company as far as iPhone users are concerned..??

    Umm no... He's saying if I am a Verizon customer I can use Verizon through my i5... Then if I wanted to switch to AT&T I can use my i5 with AT&T without having to buy a completely new i5...

    I really hope this is not the case.
    CDMA is totally useless outside the USA and the rest of the world certainly won't want some inferior dual mode chip (It is highly unlikely that a dual mode chip will be as good at either UMTS or CDMA as individual specialist chips). This is not good news

    I doubt they'll do LTE on this one...

    No. This will only benefit VZW customers. It will enable them to purchase a sim card from VZW and add a global roaming plan and use the GSM networks in other countries. I think CDMA (network VZW uses) is only in the US and South Korea. It'll probably also allow VZW iPhones to be unlocked and used on a GSM network.
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.
