Verizon iPhone Unlocked To Work On China Telecom’s CDMA Network
An employee of Guangdong branch of China Telecom claimed thatÂ â€œCDMA iPhone 4 has made its first call in China without a hitchâ€ .
A post signed the â€œApple Lab Teamâ€ on the Sina Weibo account identified as belonging to the Guangdong branch of China Telecom said Tuesday the â€œCDMA iPhone 4 has made its first call in Chinaâ€ without a hitch. Preceding posts included a photo of a Verizon Wireless iPhone beside a tag labeled China Telecom Guangdong, then a photo of the device displaying the home screen for Cydia, a software application that allows users to find applications and software packages for jailbroken Apple devices.
They have also published the following photo:
A screen shot from a Sina Weibo account registered to the Guangzhou branch of China Telecom shows an image of what appears to be a Verizon Wireless iPhone4 next to a Guangzhou China Telecom employee badge. The Chinese text above reads: â€œCDMA iphone4 registered, for the first time we invite everyone to feast their eyes!!!â€
This is interesting as GSM iPhone users have been waiting for quite a long time for a software method to unlock their iPhone on the latest basebands (such as iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 05.14.02, 05.15.04 and iPhone 4 basebands such as 02.10.04, 03.10.01). The latest version of Ultrasn0w (v1.2) unlocks iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00.
China Telecomâ€™s employees havenâ€™t revealed if they plan to release the unlocking solution to the public. As always, we will let you know as soon as we get any further updates, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
