According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, a Chinese carrier named China Telecom has managed to unlock the CDMA based Verizon iPhone to run on their CDMA network.
A screen shot from a Sina Weibo account registered to the Guangzhou branch of China Telecom shows an image of what appears to be a Verizon Wireless iPhone4 next to a Guangzhou China Telecom employee badge. The Chinese text above reads: “CDMA iphone4 registered, for the first time we invite everyone to feast their eyes!!!”
We have already reported about Verizon’s iPhone being a world phone, with both dual mode GSM and CDMA chips. Now it will be interesting to see if the iPhone Dev-Team will take the challenge of creating a public unlocking solution for the CDMA-based iPhone 4 on Verizon so that we can make it work on other CDMA networks like Sprint in US.
