    I've got an iPhone 4s locked to verizon, I want to use my att sims on it. I can find my way to unlocking it using gpp/gevey but my question is if it will still have 4g or is it limited to edge/3G?

    It doesn't support LTE, but it does support 4g.

    What network are you trying to use it on?
    AT&T and Tmobile call their hpsa+ 4G.
    Its not LTE but a faster 3G version.

    Can a Verizon/CDMA 4S even be unlocked domestically (or just internationally)?

    Verizon 4S can only be used internationally once unlocked -- No support for Domestic GSM networks PERIOD

    Sounds like the OP won't really be able to use it with AT&T anyway then.

    This is wrong. You can hack this using a GPP Sim adapter. Just buy one off http://www.gppsimusa.com/shop/

    Not wrong, you are welcome to try "Chip" methods which are not reliable and end up spending money each time you want to upgrade iOS.

    The information is 100% correct because your "Chip" method does not provide Factory Unlocking of the iPhone.

    Okay I know that it's not a factory unlock but if the user really needed to use his Verizon iPhone 4s on AT&T, this would be the way to do it on a pinch. And it works.

    Well my friend has an iPhone 4s and on the too left it says 4g when not on wifi.

    So you're right.

    My question is if I'll have access to hpsa on an iPhone 4s that's locked with Verizon, if I unlock it with the chip and enter my Att sim.

    ----------

    I do need to use my verzon iPhone 4s on att.
    The chip can unlock it but will it have it's 4g data?

    Yes, it will display 4G when unlocked and used on AT&T.
    But you know its just a fast 3G hspa+ labeled 4G by Tmobile and AT&T in the US.
