    Right now I iPhone 4 and I'm still undercontract because I this purchase the phone 3 month ago with AT&T

    My girlfriend has sprint and she able to use upgrade to the new iPhone with her account

    My question is since the new iPhone is both GSM & CDMA can we buy the iPhone throw sprint . Then use it with AT&T ? What will be the process of me doing this ? Is it so simple as me putting my sim card into the new iPhone or will it be more then that

    If anyone know or read about this please let me know

    This would NOT work...

    The i4s's are still locked to the particular carrier that you purchased the phones from. Therefore, a Sprint i4s will only work on Sprint, an AT&T i4s will only work on AT&T, etc...

    Apple will begin selling an unlocked version of the iPhone 4 S⃣ in November, for $649 (16GB), $749 (32GB) and $849 (64GB).

    I know you want to use your girlfriend's upgrade, but the only way your plan will work is if you buy the unlocked version.
