This surely comes as a pleasant surprise for CDMA carriers as some employees of China Telecom seem to have hacked the CDMA Verizon iPhone 4 to make it work on their network. Though the CDMA iPhone 4 has already been jailbroken with greenpois0n but no unlock solution has yet been released or announced. It will be interesting to see how Dev-Team hackers react to this news. It is quite possible they may give us a sneak peak into their “work in progress” regarding the Verizon iPhone unlock.
According to WSJ:
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: “CDMA iphone4 registered, for the first time we invite everyone to feast their eyes!!!”
