    Question,

    I'm aware that if you can get your iPhone 4s unlocked through Verizon, it will work on international GSM networks, but not on domestic ones (e.g., AT&T, T-Mobile). If and when ultrasn0w were to be released for the Verizon 4s, would the same restriction apply, or would they somehow be able to also allow AT&T and T-Mobile SIMs to work as well? Thanks.

    The ultrasnow unlock would potentially allow any GSM netwi=ork including AT&T and T-Mobile.

    There is not way to know that at this time, they need to reversed engineer the baseband to understand how they are blocking the domestic carriers and them see if that limitation can be overcome or not.

    Thanks for the responses. I figure it is a moot point until something is actually released, but I was just wondering.

    Well, considering an unlock hasn't been released since bb 1.59, it's almost pointless.
