Verizon CEO: Suggestion of iPhone success a ‘conspiracy’
In an interview with the Financial Times, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg has referred to the press’ suggestion that Apple’s iPhone 3G handset will see widespread success a “conspiracy.” Seidenberg described Apple as a “great company,” while pointing out its currently small share of global handset sales, and scoffing at the suggestion that the iPhone 3G’s lower subsidized pricing will help it gain mass-market acceptance. “There goes the conspiracy again,” he said. “You’re declaring them a winner before they’ve earned it on the field.” He also said that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has no monopoly on innovation, while describing how advanced mobile handsets could cause problems for other companies’ business models. “It’s very cool. And Steve Jobs eventually will get old . . . I like our chances.” Verizon recently announced a deal to buy Alltel for $28.1 billion, a move that will make it the largest US mobile company with more than 80 million customers. Seidenberg’s comments follow an incident in which a radio DJ staged a smashing of his iPhone, only to receive a call from Sprint CEO Dan Hesse moments later, who said “that was music to my ears.” The DJ’s destruction of the iPhone allegedly was “bought” by Sprint to promote a competing phone

Rather than making a decent phone to compete with apple they instead are taking the well wait till jobs is dead/retired route.

Ive been loyal to AT&T and now am hooked on the iPhone, but pretty much any company not able to have the iPhone on their network will act like this. The only reason you dont hear anything from TMobile is because a simple unlock made by devs is allowing them to rake in the money along with AT&T...

thats fine couse i hate verizon .. i went to see wanted last night they ran verizon commercials for 10 minutes , i wanted to shoot myself ,,,

^^ Apple would have to make a CDMA variant of the iPhone to get it to work on verizon. Though Vodafone (verizons' parent) wants them to convert to GSM (from what I've read in the past).

you know apples first pick to use the iphone was verizon
06-29-2008, 06:15 AM #15
haha, that's what is hilarious. Why would they choose the carrier that wants total control?
06-29-2008, 01:58 PM #16
i hate them too! after beeing with them for 4 yrs they kept of replacing my phone with some crazzy a** phone had million known issues and then had the nerver to tell me the only choice i had was to upgrade-- I was like excuse me .. the other choice i have is Cancel all the lines right now! then the guy found out 4 of our lines were out of contract and only one was under contract then they started to kiss a**. i think a company that really cares about the consumer doesn't act like this. I did hear that they were pretty bad in the past but one only knows when u deal with it first hand.
I went to T-Mobile & never been happier with a carrier. T-Mobile hands down has the bestest Customer care ....
Verizion can come out with Fregggin 6G all i care - i will never go to them -- Can you hear me now ...
06-29-2008, 03:34 PM #17
yeah i had them for one year ,never gave me my rebate back ..i canceled and went back to tmobile .they are the best if you ask me ..
I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO VERIZON ....

Verizon seems to have a business model from the '80s. I don't see how they compete, unless it is solely by brand recognition.
