If this happens, maybe it will ultimately put pressure on AT&T to improve their network.

Anyone have any idea how much it costs to drop AT&T with an iphone contract ? Looks like I need to crunch some numbers before switching .

I really think there's every chance of this, over here in the uk apple had the same five year deal with the O2 network, and just over two years later we now have it available on three networks (O2, Vodafone and Orange). I think they managed to free themselves of the deal due to some wee hole in the small print. I work for an independent retailer of iPhone's in the uk, and all of our stores were getting some very strict inspections from apple just before they made it available on Orange and Vodafone ;-)
All and all a good thing tho, it released alot of pressure and strain off the O2 network, shares the work load a bit :-)
I'm guessing the same would happen with AT&T

why isnt any1 saying that its possible it could go to sprint? they have cdma too

I'm glad I don't live in the boonies like all these people who complain about at&t's service/coverage. Not only would I be disappointed about not being able to use my iPhone, but I'd also be upset about living in the middle of nowhere.

Mate, just let it happen,
If yi don't like people hating AT&T, let them go to Verizon, and then have a bit of giggle when they change back to AT&T twenty four months later :-)
It's kinda the same over here, O2 and Vodafone are great, and Orange is pish!.... but everyone just kinda knows that anyway. Not much of a fight over who's got the best here :-)

It would surprise me if it went to verizon.
But I am surprised as many as 12% of phones support CDMA2000
I thought Apple would wait until verizon fell into line with the rest of the world with LTE
More versions of the iPhone make it difficult for everyone...He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

It could be that Sprint is willing to pay anything, ANYTHING, to remain relevant. It's always possible that a CDMA iPhone would go to Sprint instead, right?

I have never had trouble with ATT and I travel alot. I had a Verizon airfare and after getting sick of getting $1000+ bills for no reason and having to argue with them over and over I left them for good.
People talk about the $1000 bills with Verizon??? What aboutthe ten or so times in the last 6 months they have been on CNN and MSNBC for giving people $10,000-20,000 bills and flat out refusing to work with the people.
iPhones use the most data of any cell phone. And still ATT has faster 3G than Verizon.
So imagine if the iPhone were to go to them. It would be rediculous.
There is a reason the rest of the world doesn't use CDMA networks.
But either way. If the iPhone does go to Verizons POS CDMA network I will just but one made for international that uses a sim card.
