Sep 24, 2009, 3:24 PM
If someone were to jailbreak their iPhone would it work on Verizon's network?

Just wondering.

Not unless they know somebody at apple can who solder CDMA Qualcom chips in it, reconfigure the internal "radios" to support 1900mhz PCS, issue the phone a ESN and get the ESN into Verizons Database.

So no

I could do that but i choose not too.

haha i hate it when people ask me that! NO WE don't have the iphone. it is only at AT&T like the commercials say. Get BB its way can't even run 2 applications at the same time on the dumb thing.

I have to disagree. I'm a Verizon agent and just got the iPhone earlier this month. I have to say the phone is awesome and I'll be using it and the sucky AT&T network until Verizon gets the iPhone. I've used Blackberry's and loved them until I got the iPhone. Unless you've owned one, you can't say it sucks.

I'm in the exact same scenario vzwinagent... work for verizon, toting an iphone. haha. I do sincerely hope that big red reaches some agreement with apple though, my phone works less than half the places it used to now that i switched to ATT

Really? If this could be done....everyone would do it, haha.

How about the scenario someone posted where an Iphone was connected to a MiFi2200? That's one way to use Verizon's network.

That would work for data. For voice it wouldn't work.

Jailbreaking it will not make it work with Verizon, unless you mod it to have a Qualcomm CDMA chip and somehow mod the software to interact with it.. so the answer is no

Not sure why I am even sweating the iphone...As a handheld its sweet however as a phone it blows the town goat..I have heard a many complaints from ATT subscribers that have said that it sucks. Thank goodness that I am on the RED V

How about using Google Voice via the web browser? LOL

it still needs to call your physical line (to my understanding) if it was a true VOIP it might work. How much data would that be though?
