Found a 4S - Number No Longer In Service

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so my buddy's mom found an Iphone 4S about a month ago, forgot about it and finally gave it to my friend today. So me being the computer geek out of my friends I attempt to see who's it is. First we try Siri to call mom/dad/home but there isn't a number on the damn thing so I assume it was purchased probably that day it was lost (how typical). So I restore it / Jailbreak it and check the number on the sim card. We say the hell with it and try to give the number a call but it's out of service aka they canceled / lost their plan. So now without a name / number We have a 4s.

Is there anyway to change it from an AT&T to a Verizon phone? I know 4s is capable of both CDMA and GSM. If not do you think they'd let us use the phone in a contract with AT&T? Anyways Cheers.

P.S. NO IT WAS NOT STOLEN. We hate people like that.
P.S.S. There isn't a scratch or nick on this thing. So pretty.

Although I lack experience, i'm most certain that you can change carriers. Let me hunt around a bit and see if I can pull up some information.

Likely remotely wiped clean upon being lost?

Att or whoever might have it stolen/lost if you try to activate it if it was reported to them

Those are all for 4 this a 4s It can do both CDMA and GSM in the same phone but Rep+ for trying smile.gif

Edit - I assume once the 4S becomes unlockable via software or hardware then I would be able to switch but from what I've been reading until then it's a no go.

Plus if it was lost the day of purchase there is a very good chance the IMEI number has been blacklisted also witch might make it very hard to get it to work on any network.

IMEI is on GSM only, so that means if an unlock becomes available I can use it on Verizon.
