    As of now... I'm like what ever about the iPhone. While this might be the hottest phone out, I simply don't care. Why? Because everybody has the iPhone now. I'll be honest with you; I miss the attention I use to receive when it first came out. Back in July 2007, I, was, the, only, student, with, the iPhone at my college. The more people I see with it, the less interested I become with it. The phone is losing it's 'cool'. I just hope AT&T pick up the HTC HD2 so I can swap my sim back and forth.

    not likely but yes they can , as an example :

    The breakup of AT&T was initiated by the filing in 1974 by the U.S. Department of Justice of an antitrust lawsuit against AT&T.

    Ha, my Dad worked for AT&T one day then that happened. Then he worked for SBC and left before SBC bought AT&T a few years ago.

    He told me basic AT&T policy is let other groups test out stuff and, if it works, do it themselves because they are so big they can catch up easy. An example is the online version of the Yellow Pages.

    I don't think the iPhone would go to Verizon anytime soon, but if AT&T keeps that policy up and takes forever to get a 4G network, who knows what'll happen.

    If Verizon can poke a stick in Apple's eye and still get a contract with them, that would mean that Verizon is in a good position to dictate terms. Perhaps Verizon is riding the wave of customers that are unhappy with AT&T in order to achieve some leverage. Verizon, after all, has the other half of the nation's cellular population... it's the next logical step for Apple.

    My opinion is hardly informed, however

    Ick. I don't think there would be many of us happy here when iTunes and App Store are replaced by "GET IT NOW" =D Just kidding.

    Honestly, I don't know why Apple would put the money into engineering a completely different model of phone just for ONE carrier, in ONE country. GSM is the standard around the world, and that's why Apple is able to retail the phone in 90-some countries. I'd imagine them heading for T-Mobile before Verizon ANY day. One look on this site shows how many T-Mobile users are already using the iPhone, and if it was made official, that userbase would surely multiply.

    However, I can't see the iPhone going to T-Mobile until their 3G network becomes SOMEWHAT reliable (in other words, available in more than about 5 square meters throughout the U.S. I kid, I kid, but in a city like Pittsburgh, I would expect a little better support from the Big Pink.

    EDIT: My mistake. Apparently we, in fact, DO have 3G coverage here now. Would you look at that. And I didn't even notice.

    If this going to happen all the other companys would be jumping at it. But I doudt this

    Actually, from what I understand Verizon is required to use any handset that uses compatible technology on their new 4G spectrum as part of the deal that they worked out in buying it. This means that even if the iPhone 4G isn't sold through Verizon, they have to allow their customers to use it. (I do not know if this applies to all 4G networks in the U.S. or only Verizon though)

    But it also means that all 4G devices must be able to operate on other carriers as well.

    It's not going to happen people. I mean SERIOUSLY.. Verizon has their own flagship device and it's From Motorola with Android. End of story. With backing from the cash cow Verizon there is no doubt in my mind that they can move millions of these devices.

    So you are one of those douches that buys things just for the attention they get you? Bravo.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    We don't even have a GSM network here in Japan. We have a comparable PCD network that the iPhone works on, it's a little faster and more reliable, but you can't use an American iPhone on the network unless it's unlocked, even with an official iPhone sim from here it won't work. I wish they would fix that.

    More people (obviously) are on ATT but there is a good amount of users on T-Mobile, maybe half a million. Pretty good for an unsupported device.

    Verizon wouldn't be bad for the iPhone. I realize that its probably not going to happen, especially after the Droid campaign but while AT&T has the fastest 3G network, its by far not the one with the best coverage. So if you get 3G where you live, great, go with AT&T. But they don't provide service where I live while Verizon has 3G for miles around. So I'm not saying Apple should LEAVE AT&T. But relax their exclusivity so that Verizon is included too. Many, many more people would jump on board then and it would be HUGE growth for the iPhone.

    T-Mobile? lol that's like the bottom of the barrel right there. Their network is way too primitive to be given a chance. They have 3g in like 4 states prob idk.. but the expansion of 3g for t-mobile is very small. And every iphone user on that network is running on edge..so lame. But i guess they don't have a need for data. I only see verizon as the next best thing but i still don't think it's gonna happen.
