"Impossible" level of play in Sudoku Portable

Is the "Impossible" level of play possible to solve without guessing? I don't see any listing of what the levels mean. In my view, if you have to make a guess and follow it through to see if it works, it is no longer a logic puzzle. I have run across this type and don't want to waste my time unless it is solvable without guessing. Thanks.

Yup

That's why it's called impossible. It's impossible to solve logically. You have to guess. I added a note to the Sudoku homepage about that.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
