Sorry guys the Verizon iPhone is simply never going to come. In apple's eyes verizon uses an outdated and slow system for their network and they're right. Until verizon pushes out full LTE support some time in the next 10-15 years along with AT&T there is not going to be a seperate iPhone. Get a nexus one like me.

That being said I don't think anyone even CARES about this rumor anymore. The verizon iPhone has been beating this rumor dead and it's not OMG FTW PW3nAGE YEA
It's...oh a verizon iPhone? cool...Cool...want some tea.
I think the iphone would benefit more from verizon, because fast 3g coverage is useless if 3g is terrible.

Not in my experiences here in Northern Califoria, and I have both an iPhone 3GS and a Motorola Droid. Verizon's speed is consistently faster, which is far more important than any "peaks" you can hit with AT&T. EDGE is nothing to brag about, it's like using dial-up.

I doubt that these are just random "peaks"

I had verizon as my service provider for over 10 years straight. I had no problems what-so-ever... Except I wanted an iPhone!!! And if it meant switching carriers, that's all it took. I also have no problems with AT&T. Don't get me wrong, I don't travel much at this time, so verizon can shove that map up their *****!!! With that laid out, I could care less which provider I get it from, but I really enjoy surfing the web while I'm on a call(w/out having to be on wifi). With that being said... Let the games begin!!!

^It's amazing how people can confirm things that are rumours.
I would be surprised if it happens.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

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.

Apple did ask Verizon first for the iPhone to be with Verizon, they declined. Now apple is trying again, if Verizon says no to something that has been so successful, then I dont know what to tell them.
03-30-2010, 02:04 PM #33
it wont be CDMA. it will be LTE. of which Verizon is converting to. this is how the iphone will be able to cross over so easily if this all pans out.killall Terminal

The amount of comments that are flat out wrong in this thread is ridiculous. I'm not claiming my word is gospel but as far as I know the following is "fact"
- Apple did approach VZW first. The terms were unlimited data tied with phone and visual voice mail. Visual voicemail was what made verizon say no because they didn't want to foot to bill to make the network change for it. So apple goes to AT&T and they agree with visual voicemail. Guess who also has visual voicemail now? :P
The original (and still standing) contract regarding exclusitivity with AT&T was/is for five years starting with the release of the first model in which case we have a little over 1 year left.
Until Steve Jobs himself comes to my house and tells me otherwise, I stand by my words n

Wow people just wont stop....STOP DREAMING a couple of months ago you know when the ipad concept and islate talk was going on people said the same thing "its definitely gonna be on verizon",and people "confirmed that the ipad is going to be on verizon" they also said that for the last few iphones "the next ones definetly gonna be on verizon" DO PEOPLE NEVER STOP!!! Its not gonna happen. Why? Because both apple and verizon like control over there products and they also like it there way.... Apple wants to control the iphone and they can on att.... look at verizon phones they all have verizon control over them the updates and everything... apple is independent and theyll go for whoever listens to them... OK THIS MAKES ME SO MAD IM QUOTING FROM APPLE INSIDER
"The research note also identified the new phone as having a 2.8" screen, which is significantly smaller than the current iPhone's 3.5" display. "
Apple will never do that.... its stupid theres phones like the coming sprint evo 4g, nexus one from htc and others that have a bigger or better screen than the iphone and are getting points over it.... you think there gonna make a smaller iphone for verizon?????
Verizons network is not as good as people put it.... and there customer support is horrible. Verizon always wants to be in command and so does apple they dont get along
And really att has done way better for me than verizon ever has.... What some people dont get is when they say that verizon network is good they forget the load there is on att....VERIZON HAS 91.2 million U.S. subscribers... but that is after they aquired alltel before att was way in front of them.... they might have more people but that is after the aquiration of alltel a basic cell phone service that dosent take load...
BEFORE VERIZON HAD 70.8 million U.S. subscribers and ATT STILL HAS over 85.1 million subscribers IT WAS IN FRONT OF VERIZON BEFORE ALLTEL.... ATT still takes more load on there network and still has customer support and right now even verizon isnt that good MY POINT HERE IS THAT IF VERIZON DOES GET THE IPHONE AND PEOPLE DO CHANGE WONT THAT PUT THE SAME STRESS ATT HAS ON ITS NETWORK NOW???
Verizon with the iphone will be worse than att
Sorry for the caps but...
Im not an apple fanboy or an att fanboy but since i havent had any problem with eaither of those companies than I see no point to bash them and say bad about them because theyve been good to me
04-01-2010, 02:50 PM #39Go Verizon!!!! GET IT GET IT
For example, Verizon wanted to control so much of the app store and Apple said f*** that. But I think Verizon sees where they messed up since the Iphone has pretty much taken over the smart phone industry.
And as for PALM..whatever. They will never make it as long as they keep releasing the same model phone with a different name.

Its not about the speeds it about is it going to be able to handle it? Is it going to be able to handle all those iphones on there network? I know im not gonna switch att has been good to me and hasnt messed up any of my bills like verizon has or added two data plans when theres only one device... Leaders of the world? Nope there now the leaders of your mind... hurry and kick them out!!!
Remember that ATT is upgrading there network and ive noticed it.. Now they have a reliabilty of 94% while verizons is 92% and there 3g IS faster than verizon.... LTE wont be available everywhere at first
