Verizon iPhone 4 Flashed To Work On Cricket Wireless

verizon iphone

While the iPhone Dev Team are working hard to unlock GSM iPhone, it looks like some folks have figured out a way to flash CDMA iPhone 4 to work on pay-as-you-go carrier Cricket Wireless’ network in the US.

Few weeks back, we had reported that Verizon iPhone 4 had been unlocked to work on China Telecom’s CDMA network.

Engadget reports:

As any astute follower of the “pay-as-you-go” world knows, there are quite a few back alley Cricket dealers (and quite a few main street ones as well) that will happily flash any phone you give them for use on their network — and not even Verizon’s CDMA iPhone is immune.

You can also checkout the video of Verizon iPhone 4 working on Cricket’s network:

Technically, flashing refers to the overwriting or re-writing of the phone’s firmware, which in terms of the iPhone would be the baseband. We’re not sure how it was done but it looks like you first need to jailbreak CDMA iPhone and then flash it

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

    Now this will open up alot of options for CDMA users worldwide.

  • Candy Kurt

    FIRST!!!!! So if CDMA iphone 4 can flash the baseband, why can’t GSM iphone 4. It sounds as thouh someone has created a way to downgrade the latest basebands to me!

    • Zack

      CDMA basebands use a completely different software that is universal in the same was that all GSM are creäted. GSM are inheritably more secure because they are designed to be used everwhere. CDMA are designed to be programmed to their carrier on the phone (no SIM card) and therefore are easier to flash.
