    Hi guys, just wondering if since now verizon has an iPhone, is there any way that I can switch my AT&T iPhone over to verizon service without having to jailbreak?

    You can't. ATT is GSM Verizon is CDMA.

    Not possible. Different radio technologies on the inside.

    Yeah. It won't work, even if you jailbreak. You will need to man up and pay.

    Thanks guys. No reason to really switch then. My iPhone 4 is just fine. I'll just wait until June or July when they announce another new one.

    Should work fine. You will just need to stop by a VZW store on launch day and pick up a VZW sim and all should be good. I did this with my AT&T Pre and couldnt be happier with it on VZW.

    No, the AT&T version has GSM (Sim cards) and Verizon has CDMA which requires different antenna structure. So basically, you got an iPod touch.

    100% incorrent, two different networks. There is no way that you did this in the past.

    AT&T uses GSM, while Verizon uses CDMA. AT&T uses sim cards, while CDMA does not. Only CDMA phones can work on CDMA networks, just like GSM phones will only work on GSM networks.

    What is the Difference Between GSM and CDMA?
