iPhone 5 Confirmed to a be Dual-Mode CDMA/GSM World Phone?

An iPhone developer has discovered app registrations from users that are using a new phone that supports both CDMA and GSM, reports TechCrunch. The app developer asked to remain anonymous but provided the evidence for examination.

The logs show that the app has been briefly tested by a handful of people using what is almost certainly an iPhone 5, evidently running iOS 5, sporting two distinct sets of mobile network codes (MNC) / mobile country codes (MCC). Those codes can be used to uniquely identify mobile carriers.

Sure enough, some registrations for the app – which the developer also asked not to be named – were logged from a new Apple device, using the MNC/MCC codes from both Verizon and AT&T.


This would appear to confirm remarks made by Verizon CFO Fran Shammo in April.

"The fluctuation, I believe, will come when a new device from Apple is launched, whenever that may be, and that we will be, on the first time, on equal footing with our competitors on a new phone hitting the market, which will also be a global device."

First off it wasn't a complaint it was a suggestion. Referring to my post. But I wouldn't expect anything less from you as a response. You are the reason I started calling the comments section on iclarified "the peanut gallery". Usually I read when I'm in the mood for pointless or sometimes funny remarks. And yes I've contributed to "the peanut gallery" (tpg) also. But no one on "tpg" is as obnoxious as you. YOU ARE THE BIG PEANUT! The stinky one that came from... Well you know just read your name.

Agreed! I have this cool unlocked iPhone on a cheap unlimited everything plan that is slower than honey on a cold day using T-Mobile's EDGE network. Maybe that will change if the AT&T deal goes through. An iPhone 5 with the T-Mobile Band would be really great for all of us unlockers.

How can you have a confirmation of something but follow the statement w/ a "?" To me that make the statement more speculation than confirmation.
