    This was already known. You can't SIM unlock a phone for a CDMA network because CDMA networks don't use SIM cards...

    iPhone 4S (CDMA) CAN use GSM Sims unlocked

    iPhone 4s CDMA is a world phone and has an installed sim slot. Unlocked it can use a gsm sim on any gsm network.:cool:

    He's not talking about a CDMA bought iphone 4S.
    Any factory unlocked iphone's sold can only be used on GSM networks and cannot be activated on CDMA networks such as Verizon or Sprint.
