Potential iPhone 5 upgraders are hunting details on the changes and new features for the 6th generation iPhone today, and some are still undecided whether to buy and also what network they should purchase the iPhone 5 on. Your choice might be made easier thanks to a revelation about the new iPhone 5, and a new feature that’s a first for an iPhone and one that Apple has kept quiet about.
The new Verizon iPhone 5 can also access AT&T’s network – this can be done without hacking the device, which is a first and something that might sway buyers as they look at what carrier to go for. This is even more important when you think it gives Verizon iPhone 5 owners the choice to switch to AT&T rather than renewing a contract that’s about to expire.
Would this feature make you want the iPhone 5 on Verizon more than AT&T? It is unclear if Apple will disable this feature in the near future, but you’d expect that to happen considering the unfair advantage it gives Verizon Wireless. You can see a video below explaining how the Verizon iPhone 5 is GSM unlocked, and they claim it will also work with T-Mobile.
