    Exclamation Jailbreak and unlock Verizon iPhone?

    Will you be able to Jailbreak the Verizon iPhone? Unlock it for Sprint?

    We're discussing it here:

    Sprint won't allow it on their networks. They only provision sprint branded phones. Maybe another CDMA provider will allow it.

    This thread is a moot point as it was announced that Verizon's CDMA iPhone is a multi-year, non-exclusive deal.

    There will likely be iPhones on other CDMA carriers at some point.

    oh yeah. No question about it. I'll stick with sprint, as I'm already on a 2 year with them. If a iPhone comes to sprint later this year or next, then I may get the iPhone, but I don't think I would want to downsize to a baby screen, and loose "4G" (even if its not true 4G, its still fast)

    I agree with your decision. One thing that constantly annoys me about my iPhone 4 is how small the phone is.. I have big hands so its hard for me to type/use the phone in portrait.. The size of the Atrix has me considering an upgrade to that.

    If we're discussing it there, why did we need a 2nd thread pointing to it and then duplicating it?

    Default Jailbreak = Hybrid OS?

    Ill be making the switch from blackberry to the verizon iphone and one thing I am interested in is jailbreaking. Is this similar to using hybrid and leaked os; or is it a completely different concept?

    Completely different concept. Start by reading the stickies in the jailbreak forum to get the scoop.

    I don't really know of any features that I would need to jailbreak for now that MMS is available for the iPhone, is there a jailbreak app for better notifications? That's my only real iOS gripe. Apple has been doing a great job of giving users the features they want with each iOS upgrade.

    I hope that it will be jailbroken. I will wait to order until it's confirmed that it CAN be jailbroken.

    If you go to cydia.com, there are so many cool apps that I would love to have on my iPhone. For instance, the ability to have haptic feedback when typing on the virtual keyboard, better pop-up SMS apps, ability to customize e-mail/SMS notifications for different callers, etc.

    The mobile Hotspot app to get after the jailbreak is MyWi. I think it's 20 bucks, but that's a small price to pay for a mobile hotspot.

    I saw this also. I think I'll wait. And it'll give me a chance to get used to how everything works since I'm coming from a bb 9650...
