Jailbreaking and Unlocking iPhone 4S on iOS 5.1 Verizon/Sprint

I have the Verizon iPhone 4S with Verizon, but have a contract with Sprint.

1st. I want to know if a Jailbreak is possible for iOS 5.1.

2nd. Is there a possible unlock for iOS 5.1 for 4S.

3rd. Can the Verizon iPhone 4S be flashed to another career... I don't wish to proceed with Verizon.

1. Not yet from what i've read. It's being worked on.
2. I dont think so.
3. If you have to ask this question then no. There are people who have flashed cdma phones to other carriers, but it involves messing with the ESN. No I don't know how it's done, and i've never heard of it being done on an iphone. You are better off selling the phone and buying a new or used Sprint iphone.

That's interesting you would think by now they would have a Jailbreak or even a unlock for the iPhone 4S. And interesting I have seen iPhone users Jailbreak there device and have them flashed over to metro pcs, hopefully if there is anyways at all.. Maybe there would be a possibility to flash this Verizon iPhone 4S to any career preferably Sprint.

The unlock is not for the phone, the unlock is for the operating system. There was an unlock for the first release of iOS 5.0.x, but there recently has been a new release bringing the version number to 5.1. Since each release fixes the holes each unlock exploits, you have to wait for new exploits to be found and procedures developed to exploit them.

do you think they will have a unlock for the iPhone 4S , Verizon & Sprint even though the phone Is CDMA but has a international sim card slot ? That is compatible for any sim card

No idea about Verizon, since I am Sprint only. The Sprint iPhones have had JB's released for them in the past, so I expect iOS 5.1 will too, unless Apple has managed to close all the exploits that allow a phone to be unlocked. That probably won't happen until phone CPU's have hypervisor capability, and TPM's or some other type of trusted platform locking, and simply will not allow untrusted code to execute.

The Verizon iPhone 4S can be flashed to prepaid carriers like Cricket or MetroPCS. You also might have luck getting it on Page Plus.

But you will NEVER NEVER NEVER get your Verizon iPhone 4S working on Sprint, unless Sprint starts allowing foreign ESN's on their network.

There is a SIM exploit coming soon to allow your Verizon iPhone 4S to work on US GSM carriers like AT&T or T-Mobile. However, this only works if your iPhone is running iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1, your 5.1 will not work. http://bit.ly/zlfIyK

Jailbreak is coming for 5.1, but it is not available right now.

you could always see if a gevey sim could/would work on the CDMA 4S, not sure.. i know 5.1 is unlockable w that but its just for GSM 4S'

worth a shot if you're looking to switch to GSM ,but data won't work correctly

There is a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1, which I am currently running. There is not yet an unlock for this version that I am aware of.

There is no jailbreak for any A5 device (iPhone 4S or iPad 2) running iOS 5.1.

They are working on it. Once its jailbroken, this Gevey SIM should unlock your phone: http://applenberry.com/store/gevey-s...tra-s-for-cdma

Check out www.beigephone.com
They can flash your iPhone to PagePlus which uses the Verizon network. For $55 a month. You get unlimited talk & text and 1GB data. That's their best package & they are No Contract!

iPhone 4s AT&T, sprint, Verizon can be unlocked for any GSM carrier. And yes, data will work properly. I currently have a sprint iPhone 4s unlocked to AT&T, it can run on any carrier
