    Default Big Reaction To Small Evidence of Verizon iPhone

    Are the hopes for a Verizon iPhone so high that even the most minimal shred of evidence to suggest an end to AT&T exclusivity is sufficient to send some Verizon fans into a frenzy? Apparently, the answer to that question is a big, fat "affirmative."

    Our friends at Electronista published a report this weekend that has since been dubbed "potential evidence of a Verizon-capable iPhone." But, apparently, it's ample evidence to convince some that a Verizon iPhone is all but inevitable. The conclusion is based on the screen capture from an iPhone that displays the "Verizon" carrier tag.

    Sources have provided a screen capture from an iPhone in the San Francisco Bay Area that shows "Verizon" as the carrier ID. The tip comes with warnings that no more information can be disclosed just this moment but also that more should become apparent in the near future.
    Call me crazy, but it seems a bad 1970's detective TV show would deem this evidence "flimsy" at best. But as we rapidly approach the expiration of AT&T's exclusive deal with Apple to carry the iPhone, all eyes and ears are trained on Verizon for clues of a forthcoming announcement by the carrier to begin offering coverage for the beloved handset.

    Here's the controversial image in question:

    Could this be a glimpse into the future? Might we see this image on Conan O'Brien's "In The Year 3000" skit? Or will the idea of a Verizon iPhone prove as short lived as Conan O'Brien on The Tonight Show? I guess only time will tell.

    While the capture itself is believed to be genuine, the authenticity of the ID itself is difficult to determine. Readers should take severe caution as it's possible to fake the carrier ID with a modified iPhone. However, such a modification would be unusual as current iPhones use GSM, not CDMA, and would expose the inaccuracy of trying to associate a present-day model with an incompatible network.

    I hope the iPhone does go to verizon so it can bog down their network. Im hoping something rediculous doesnt happen like verizon getting an exclusivity deal with the 4g iphone. And you can change the carrier to say verizon very easily. Not rock hard evidence.

    Do you want to see an iPhone running on Sprint? I will photoshop an image for you....

    We have determined in the past not to believe an image. Look at the history of all of the FAKE iPhone pictures and FAKE Tablet pictures. There is a huge track record for photoshopped images to surface in light of a rumor. Only a fool buys into these images and rumors.

    We have said this multiple times, At&t and Apple are still under contract until 2011. These Verizon rumors are as bad as all of the failed 3GS rumors last year. Verizon will not have the iPhone for a while if at all.

    I can make my carrier ''. I guess that's irrefutable evidence that Microsoft has bought AT&T and Apple. Oh well. We all knew the world would come crashing down one day.

    If it was Really Going to be a Verizon phone, then the carrier would be the full official network name, "Verizon Wireless" not "Verizon". It would appear as "Verizon Wire..." or something like that, because it would not be able to support the full Carrier Name.. Unless you can dig something up that states the carrier is CDMA, i'm not buying it.

    I think we all should install MIM and flood the Internet with screen shots of our phones to take the hype even further.
