    OK so I have a friend who unlocked his Iphone and when I was deciding which phone to buy he kept telling me that the iphone could be unlocked jailbroken or something like that the point is that once they unlocked it you can use it with any company And so the question is can Droid be jailbroken or unlocked??? :thinking: once the phone is jail broken can it be used in diff countries?? has anyone here done it?
    Im not planning to do that, but It keeps me wondering....:thinking:
    :thinking::thinking:

    The Droid is a CDMA device. The two major CDMA providers in the USA are Verizon and Sprint. No matter what rooting (Droid's equivalent of jailbreaking) you do, you can't make it work on a GSM network (AT&T or T-Mobile).

    As for iPhones, unlocking and jailbreaking are very different. Jailbreaking lets you run non-Apple approved apps. Unlocking allows you to use it on any GSM carrier worldwide. But just like Droid won't work on AT&T, there's no way to get the iPhone to work on Verizon.
