Guys, bought an unlocked iphone 4s in apple store in NYC some months back... (expensive!) :) Traveled, 3G sim cards work great... Now im in Seattle, and would like to get the better service of Verizon (everything else here seems to #$(*%&%$)

Will this phone work on the verizon network as well? Dont want to trust the "read somewhere" that the chip supports cdma.. blabla

help? suggestions? :)

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

At the iPhone hacks section.
No, unlocked 4S only works on GSM carriers.
Verizon is CDMA so they wont activate the phone on their network.
You can use Tmobile, AT&T, simple mobile, straight talk, redpocked, h2o etc...

Thanks!
