    If you take an unlocked iPhone (or any phone, for that matter) to a non-CDMA country and use a Verizon roaming SIM, would the stats list Verizon or the roaming partner? Of course, the chance of that is minuscule, but I'm curious :)

    Very weird if it is actually real.
    Why dont I see Tmobile listed there? There's tons of factory and software unlocked iphones in the US.

    The Verizon "world phones" have SIM slots, I believe. This way they can be used anywhere in the world.

    Yes, they have roaming SIM's and they're used when outside of the US.

    oh neva knew that :)

    Maybe the unlocked tmobile ones are under unidentified

    But i really still don't gett the chart.
    is it one of those where it shows how many phones are running a certain app under what carrier or wifi. Because it says at&t has 12 "sessions" while Verizon has 3

    It would list Verizon. Data traffic is routed back through your home carrier when roaming.

    I don't know how it works in the US. But every time I've traveled, I get the name of the carrier I'm using to roam on that country.

    You don't get the carrier you have the contract with.

    No, it would list the carrier of the country you're in.

    An update on this: The "Verizon" listings are users with Verizon DSL, using their iPhones over Wi-Fi.

    Love to see the VZ crowd excited for a moment and then pull the rug right under their feet.
