How the iPhone Works With Android Phones

The iPhone is a smartphone of huge popularity around the world. iPhones are user friendly with features that make using it easier than ever. However, not everyone enjoys the ease of use that the iPhone has to offer and this is why users have taken to the idea of unlocking their iPhones to enable them to use the phone with not only carriers from which they are currently signed up but also other third party apps that are available. By unlocking your phone you will gain access to additional functionality not available on an iPhone such as:


Most modern smartphones are available with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) technology, which is a type of data networking using wireless carriers. This technology enables your phone to connect to the internet by communication with a SIM card in the cell phone, which in turn connects to a GSM provider’s server. If you are able to acquire your own sim card from a cellular service provider, you will find it much simpler and easier to sign-up, pay bills and check your balance. When your mobile phone is already registered with a GSM provider, you can then choose a GSM network which offers the best deal and services for your needs. This means that iPhones that are purchased with the intention of using on GSM connections can easily be used with whichever network you prefer.

However, iPhones are not made compatible with the majority of GSM providers in the world, which means that many iPhone owners will need to buy their own sim cards and insert them into their iPhones after purchase. Unlocking the iPhone’s programming therefore allows users to use GSM phones that are of the same network as their iPhone but also gives them access to the new features of the Apple iPhone including text and picture messaging, wifi capabilities, accelerometers and proximity sensors. In addition, iPhones with the intention of using GSM connectivity can now also communicate with WAP enabled smart phone applications that have been downloaded through the iTunes Store. By doing so, your iPhone will appear as if it is connected to a network where these applications are available and will function normally like an iPhone would do if it was controlled by a GSM carrier.

The iPhone is not the only smart phone that has the ability to use GSM technology. All modern smartphones have the same functionality as the iPhone, which means that users can easily transfer their contacts from one smartphone to another. The Android Market has more than a few thousands of apps that are GSM compatible. Because Android apps can work on the networks that are widely used by iPhones, users do not need to purchase new sim cards whenever they want to upgrade their existing smartphones. The vast majority of these apps are free to download and install. This means that users can install as many apps as they wish on their iPhone without having to pay for any additional networking services to enable the transfer of contacts and other data.

As soon as a new version of an iPhone appears on the market, there are changes to the operating system and app store that are made available for all previous iPhones in the market. One such change is the switch to GSM technology. The GSM feature enables iPhones to connect to GSM phones, regardless of where the user is in the world. Android devices must remain connected to a GSM network in order to use the Android Market’s apps. iPhones can also take advantage of text message services that can be sent from an iPhone to an Android device.

The switch to GSM meant that iPhones could now support several GSM carriers around the world, instead of just being limited to CDMA carriers. In addition, iPhones are also capable of using CDMA networks, which meant that they could communicate with older version android phones. The move to GSM also meant that all previous versions of the iPhone could communicate with newer android phones via Bluetooth. This means that with an adapter, old iPhones can link up with new android phones and vice versa.
