New evidence that the iPhone 5 will offer dual-mode CDMA and GSM capabilities has surfaced online. TechCrunch, citing information supplied by an unnamed developer, reports that the developer’s app usage logs show a small number of people using the app on a “single, brand-new Apple device” that supports both CDMA and GSM networks. More specifically, the device sports two distinct sets of mobile network codes (MNC) and mobile country codes (MCC), which can be used to uniquely identify mobile carriers. The new device is said to use the MNC/MCC codes from both Verizon and AT&T. Notably, the Qualcomm-sourced cellular communications chip found in the CDMA iPhone 4 is technically capable of supporting both CDMA and GSM networks, although the latter functionality was not used in that particular model.
