China Telecom Employees Unlock the Verizon iPhone?

The WSJ is reporting that China Telecom employees may have unlocked the Verizon iPhone for use on their CDMA network.

A post signed the "Apple Lab Team" on the Sina Weibo account identified as belonging to the Guangdong branch of China Telecom said Tuesday the "CDMA iPhone 4 has made its first call in China" without a hitch. Preceding posts included a photo of a Verizon Wireless iPhone beside a tag labeled China Telecom Guangdong, then a photo of the device displaying the home screen for Cydia, a software application that allows users to find applications and software packages for jailbroken Apple devices.

The team reveals that the phone was jailbroken with Greenpois0n for Mac; however, its not really clear if the phone has been unlocked to use a China Telecom number or whether the phone has just made a call over China Telecom's network using a Verizon number.

The employees’ microblog says to stay tuned for more "pleasant surprises."
