    reading this article made me think, is a carrier going to want to get there hands dirty with this? in NYC the only CDMA carrier i can think of is metroPCS as there are some videos surging up (fake ho knows) but if this does happen i know plenty of people that will do it

    As the article mentions there are not many CDMA options here in the USA. However there are some other countries where CDMA networks exist (China & Brazil are to that come to mind) and those providers may not care about where the devices originated. If that is true then I could see some folks wanting them elsewhere.

    However, this is why I have always said that the VZ CDMA-only iPhones will not have the resale value that the AT&T models do. There isn't as large of a second-hand demand for CDMA devices for this very reason (non-portability to other markets/providers).
