    I have been searching around and i cannot figure this out, is there a way to put boost mobile onto my iPhone by unlocking it.? i have to assume that i cannot use ultrasn0w because Boost Mobile is not a GSM network, it's CDMA and TDMA. How would i unlock an iPhone to use these networks.?

    You'd have to convince them to activate a VZW iPhone at a Boost Mobile store. I heard a story about someone who got Metro PCS to activate one but I haven't heard anything about Boost.

    No, a GSM AT&T phone is not compatible with CDMA bands.

    Thank you very much.
    I wish there was a way for it go to to CDMA, but eh, I guess i'll have to find another network to use.

    Right. The only way to do this is in fact illegal.

    Not many options and with Tmobile getting bought out by AT&T soon there will be just 1 major US GSM carrier and 2 CDMA.
    I dont know if those smaller companies like metropcs, boost and cricket can be considered a threat either:)

    Thanks for that insight. Could you please cite the court case used to set precedence here?

    I understand the fcc wording on their site regarding unlawful cloning and intent to defraud, but I must have missed that particular judgement. :cool:
