iPhone 5 Unlocked – iPhone 5 Will Work On Any Network Confirmed

iPhone 5 will be unlocked globally. It has been confirmed by Verizon CFO that iPhone 5 will use any network carrier. One of the top executives of Verizon and company’s CFO, Fran Shammo has confirmed this during Reuters Global Technology Summit. Verizon Wireless will be competing with AT&T by selling the next generation iPhone 5.

This is what he has said during the Technology Summit:
While Verizon has sold fewer iPhones than some analysts expected, Shammo said he was happy with sales of the “six-month-old phone” that only works in some countries. When the next iPhone model launches Verizon will be able to offer it at the same time as AT&T. Verizon’s version will also work in as many countries as AT&T’s iPhone, which has global coverage, Shammo said. Some customers held off on buying the first Verizon iPhone because they were waiting for a model that supports Verizon’s high-speed wireless service, which runs on a new technology called Long Term Evolution (LTE). Shammo said that even if the next iPhone does not support LTE, Verizon will have enough high-speed alternatives to sell.
According to the comments by Verizon CFO, it seems that iPhone 5 will be unlocked on any network carrier globally. Thats really a great news if we are really getting an unlocked iPhone 5 device. But as “Seeing is believing” so we have to wait for the device. iPhone 4 users can feel how great this news is as they know that iPhone 4 unlock is still not possible on higher basebands.
