I have a friend who has Verizon and really wants an iPhone. Someone told him that there is a JB so iPhone will work with Verizon. Anyone done it?

I thought the only one was for T mobile.

any input is appreciated. Thanks in advanced!

Nope. Verizon uses CDMA networks, not GSM like the iPhone. Basically, VZW doesn't use SIM cards so unless you modify the hardware pretty heavily, it wont work.

Nope. Cant be unlocked for Verizon at all...I don't think there is anything about that in installer. Maybe it was the carrier logo change thing for verizon?
