    Is it possible to jailbreak an iPhone to work with Verizon? My guess would be no because they don't use sim cards. But looking for anyone with more knowledge than me.

    Thanks.

    No, you can't. Verizon is a CDMA carrier where the iPhones uses GSM. They are incompatable technologies.

    1. No because Verizon uses CDMA vs AT&T uses GSM (The global Standard)

    2. Jailbreak only lets you install 3rd party applications into the iPhone. What you need to do is unlock it, hence jailbreaking is necesary to install the unlocking program.
