Unlocked iPhone works on CDMA?


The Apple site clearly says that the unlocked iPhone 5 off their site only works on GSM networks yet a friend of mine just activated her unlocked phone on Virgin mobile which is a CDMA carrier. Can someone explain this to me?

Here is what Apple says:

"The unlocked iPhone includes all the features of iPhone but without a contract commitment. You can activate and use it on the supported GSM wireless network of your choice. The unlocked iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will not work with CDMA-based carriers."
