This is because even after tedious work of unlocking the iPhone, you will find that there is no way iPhone can work with Verizon wireless. To use an iPhone, the wireless cellphone carrier has to have HSDPA or GSM wireless network. Only AT&T and T Mobile has designed that networking. Verizon uses CDMA cellular network.


What's the closest verizon phone that works and looks like iPhone? iPhone is ultra unique and there is no cell phone that comes close to match with iPhone. Palm pre is probably the closest phone that you can get if you are thinking of an iPhone look and work alike. Alas, palm pre only works with Sprint. So you gotto unlock it...before you can even see if it will work at all with Verizon cellular network. But if it is just the touchscreen that you are after, then be glad that there are more than enough touch screen cell phone out in the market these days such as LG Dare. Blackberry Storm is the best option for you if you want it to work with Verizon.

So who knows AT&T and iPhone deal might not get renewed. Or maybe Obama administration stop them from getting together for antitrust bussiness because exclusivity deters competition.
