    Has anyone tried to see if a Verizon SIM card will work in an unlocked iPhone or iPhone 3G. (BlackBerry Storm)

    Where is this Verizon SIM you speak of? Also if you'd do any googling at all you'd realize that Verizon uses CDMA. iPhone uses GSM, like the rest of the world. Therefore, iPhone will not work on Verizon at all with the current hardware. It's not possible. Period. End of Story.

    This should be stickied. This question comes up at least once a week now...

    Verizon has a dual CDMA/GSM phone, the Blackberry. It does NOT come with a "Verizon SIM".

    The Verizon World Phone, on the other hand, DOES, but even it does not work in the U.S.

    Nah, even macforum regulars can go through lazy spells where they want others to do their work for them.

    All I wanted to know was if a Verizon SIM card from the BlackBerry Storm (I know it has a SIM card in it) would work in a unlocked iPhone. I know that they use different networks. (GSM/CDMA) I know that you can use the BlackBerry Storm on T-Mobile.
