That I can't buy a full retail price iPhone from apple and use the CDMA chipset in it.
How would you even do that? CDMA devices are always locked to specific carriers unless you know how to flash a different carrier's firmware.
You can buy one full price but you have to know what carrier you want to use it on.
You can purchase a full price sprint iPhone but you won't be able to use it on Verizon or vice versa.
Yeah but say I want it on AT&T or simply mobile then want to go on Verizon or visa versa
It's more a limitation of the carriers (though apple has a role too since I think they do disable the CDMA portion at the factory)
Yep, you can not do that. You would need to sell your device and get another.
Yup welcome to the US this isn't europe the cell phone companies use different tech (GSM,CDMA)3G for GSM is on different frequencies and CDMA carriers even though they use the same freqs wont activate another carriers phone on their networks.It stinks but its life
True, I hear you on that.
I also wish this was possible but i guess this is how these companies can rip us off. It would give them the chance to overcharge us.
