Although at one point the Apple’s unlocked iPhone 4 was only available for AT&T, the device has been continually move forward to be available for various other carriers as well. Already, versions of the iPhone have been available on Verizon and other networks. Now, it looks as though the phone, in the very near future, could be available for many more carriers as well. A number of public statements from both Verizon wireless as well as Apple, has stated that there is no CDMA exclusive contract for the iPhone, and this means that other CDMA companies could potentially pick up the iPhone and use it on their own network. This could change later in the year, as both Sprint and T-Mobile will allow for users to purchase the iPhone five and use it on their network.
This is something that many Apple fan boys have been waiting for for quite some time. The ability to use the iPhone carriers other than AT&T, a company that did not receive all that raving of reviews for the service that they had provided to iPhone users, it will be interesting to see which networks are able to live up to standards that the users have set so high. The new iPhone4 unlocked, which has been done the Apple iPhone 4S, is a device that has been highly anticipated. While in the beginning will surmise that the device would have very meager updates in comparison to the previous versions of the device, it now appears that it will be receiving some very worthwhile updates. This, plus the fact that there is no CDMA exclusive contract between Verizon and Apple, the could see the phone available for many different carriers in a very short period of time. It will be interesting to see what kind of response the other carriers receive when they are finally allowed to start offering the iPhone on their networks.
