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

Posted August 23, 2011 at 2:02am by iClarified · 21617 views
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.

perhaps the real work would be to find out if iphone 5 will support tmobile 3g.

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.

duh, you're slow. the question mark means its a question. ie. does this confirm that it will be a world phone?

I really just think at this point the iClarified app should have 3 sections "trending", "most recent" and "rumored". And put all the rumored garbage in it's appropriate section. - August 23, 2011 at 11:40pm
Agreed! This is retarded! they do care about it - August 23, 2011 at 11:40pm
Are they asking readers?? Sh###t )))))))))

Does this mean the iPhone 5 can be used worldwide?

As long as it's not carrier locked
Jeremy - August 23, 2011 at 3:05am
Would be nice if it was dual mode. Just wonder if I would be able to activate it on a carrier other than Verizon...

Most dual band phones from VZW only support 900/1800 MHz frequencies and will not work on the U.S. GSM networks, which are mostly 850/1900/2100 MHz. 900/1800 MHz are for international use only.
Jeremy - August 23, 2011 at 7:02am
Um, well the network that I want, US Cellular, is CDMA. And, based on what you are saying, sounds like Apple is gonna 86 AT&T??? That's messed up...

If they did then wouldn't they be losing money - like they really need more money.
