    Hi,
    I bought iPhone 4 - Verizon CDMA on ebay but I didn`t notice that it was CDMA network. I would like to us it in Canada in CDMA network. Is it possible to unlock or flash the fone ?

    All you need is a CDMA provider in Canada willing to activate the device on their network.

    In theory, yes. But if CDMA carriers in Canada are anything like they are in the US, they won't...

    No carrier in canada supports CDMA phones, all carriers here in Canada are GSM.

    They may not advertise it... but they do - if they didn't support it, they (Canadian carriers) couldn't support Verizon users as roaming partners... and they do. At least one Canadian carrier does...

    Ok, I though that the carriers already shut down their CDMA network, but they haven't yet, on march 31, 2014 telus will turn off its CDMA network though, I'll check bell & Rogers though to see if they still have a CDMA network.

    Ok telus & bell still support CDMA, telus's CDMA network is shutting down on march 31, 2014 and bell still offers it and provides roaming for sprint phones. Rogers does not support CDMA at all.
