    Moving this thread to the right section

    If your jailbroken you can use the SAM method, there's a sticky up at the top

    for the "did you find a way to get a data plan or not" Not sure what your talking about, but you can't just unlock and have data, you need a plan with that service provider.

    The iPhone 4 doesn't have a 4G radio.

    Changing the .prl won't give you access to data any network you want. Unlocking allows you to use the phone on any network, in your case any CDMA network you have an account with. What carrier are you wanting to flash to?

    You can unlock it, but you can only use CDMA carriers

    Unlocking usually refers to a GSM network and flashing usually refers to CDMA networks.

    When you unlock it you can use it on any CDMA carrier, when you flash something, it's only for 1 network.
