let me get this straight can u set up an iphone with a different phone provider like sprint??
on most networks yes, but sprint/nextel won't work due to different sims. Their sim cards are not gsm.
same thing with Verizon
so can anybody give me the list of providers that do work
At&t (of coarse)
others (i'm not 100% sure these will work):
I like T-Mobile.
Alltel, Verizon, Sprint, and Nextel will not work with the iPhone since they're CDMA carriers and don't use sim cards. ATT, T Mobile, etc. will work with the iPhone since they're GSM carriers and do use sim cards.
Verizon, UNICEL, alltel, Sprint/Nextel, AirTouch, Bell Atlantic, Ameritech, etc. communicate through CDMA but AT&T, T-Mobile, some of Alltel, etc. communicate through GSM. So the iPhone cannot use CDMA cause it only supports sim cards which run on only GSM carriers
someone said that it could run through virgin mobile??
thats impossible isnt it?
