Verizon: "Wednesday is a Big Day," Apple: AT&T a "Great Partner"
The "iPhone is coming to Verizon OMG OMG" rumor has in many ways seemed poised to overtake the "thing starting with T" rumor ahead of tomorrow's Apple event, the purpose of which has been shrouded in secrecy. Anonymous reports surfaced last week about Verizon being in last-minute talks with Apple, one of Boy Genius's inside sources allegedly claims that Verizon store managers have been told to prepare for an announcement via webcast tomorrow. At the same time, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook took the opportunity yesterday to praise AT&T and downplay rumors of a second iPhone carrier in the US.
Boy Genius, who's had a few successes in getting good leaks, just passed on a whisper from one of his sources inside Verizon.
One of our connects just told us that Verizon Wireless has a “kick off” event in the beginning of every quarter that covers and goes over new things that are in the pipeline like devices, products, services, etc. for store managers. Except, this kick off is coincidentally on this coming Wednesday, and additionally, we’ve been informed there will be a “live webcast” that everyone attending will be viewing around 1PM ET.
We think iPhone customers are having a great experience from the research we've done. AT&T has acknowledged they're having a few issues in a few cities and they're making plans to address these. We've reviewed these plans and we're confident they'll make significant progress towards fixing them.

^^^ Apple will most likely release the 4G iPhone at the same for both carriers. They don't want to alienate their customers based on service contracts with cell phone carriers.

iPhone on verizon tomorrow is just not going to happen. iPad on multiple carriers tho is possible.

Unless VZW has secretly been adding HSPA to their towers like Telus did in Canada, Apple will have to put disclaimers on their commercials when I comed to their "multitasking" phone call commercial (Not available on all providers). CDMA had a chance but decided EV-DV wasn't worth it. Don't get me wrong as multiple providers casrrying the iPhoneg/iPad wouldn't hurt by speading the user base out a little.

All I have to say is, iPhone firmware 4.0 or STFU.

If it's only true.......... Soon, we "all" might be able to buy an iPhone that can keep a call from dropping and use a 3G network in most of the US (I know, not at the same time unfortunately). Brilliant!

We'll see tomorrow though, if its one thing about apple, they like to play the whole "one step ahead of the crowd" game.
My personal predictions? iSlate/iPad/iTouch XL whatever is officially announced. What i'm really hoping for is 4.0 beta seeding to developers...
Possibly an announcement about multiple carriers, but I feel thats way to many things at once, i feel thats something they'd want to include when they release 4.0 to the public.

As much as I hate Verizon, I really do wonder what changes ATT might bring around with their plans to be more competitive with Verizon if this happens. Not having to pay an extra $20 a month for unlimited texting would be one super thing.

This is good if true will have to wait and see..at least it will take off the hard 3G sucking on AT&T 3G network..but wait verizon don't let you talk and surf the web at the same time.....

I hate Verizon, their 3G network is as fast as AT&T EDGE is... If I wanted EDGE internet speeds I'd go to T-Mobile and get a plan cheaper than both AT&T and Verizon.

im staying with at&t but if verizon does get it this might be what we need to get at&t to lower those damn plans... cause u know verizon is gonna come with something nice if they do get the iphone to try to get users to switch to verizon...
