This is gonna suck if it goes to verizon they would have complete control over the iphone with the CDMA network.Maybe if they were GSM it wouldn't be so bad but the main reason verizon sucks is there is no sim card ability.

Does anybody else loathe the Verizon guy?

So why would verizon order a bunch of phones that will not work on their next network by the time that the AT&T deal is over? I believe Sprint is the intended recipient IF and it is a big IF this story isn't one huge farce.

That would be awesome, Then I can get an iPhone for work ... Finally

and no, it wasnt on wifi, it was on 3g. i know how to work and comprehend a phone

Seems too strange to be real. Has any other manufacture ever released a specific phone model to two competitors at the same time before?
As much as I would like to see how iPhone will work out on VZW, I'm wondering what kind of restruction VZW will place on this. VZW has not always been the mobile phone provider to look up to until ATT had failed on their part for the iPhone.

Here we go again with another rumor. Really I could care less if it goes to Verizon but it would be awesome to see it on T-Mobile or Sprint. Verizon is just as expensive as AT&T but at least they have a bigger 3G coverage area.

If iPhone will be capable of data and voice at the same time with Verizon CDMA then im moving to them, if not im staying with AT&T and its dropped calls.

Verizon's data plans are really expensive :/ Won't be much cheaper than AT&T...

verizon is hideous. sorry, not trying to be a hater, but all of you at&t haters should understand verizon blows big ones.
to the first poster of this thread, you are out of your mind. who uses a motorola droid for phone calls, but carries an iphone for everything else? youre wasting money people wish they had to afford a cellphone (not that i have any say with how you spend your money)
i call bull on both, that post, and this rumor.
ps: dont get me wrong. its not like at&t is really great either-- but verizon is definitely not any better, especially at the higher price you pay for their service.

1) noone knows ANY details on the contract between apple and AT&T, we can only speculate
2) people think that the ipad is a mark of a new contract with apple and AT&T
3) CDMA is outdated and restricts apple
4) Verizon has its own store, that would compete with apple
5) if AT&T loses money, they might provide less support to apple, which thus far they have shelled out quite a lot.

I will echo what others have said.... I really wish they would come out with a verizon phone. This way the posts of "will verizon get iPhone", "I hate at&t, dropped calls...", blah blah blah.
Of course those posts will be replaced with "Verizon sucks, their network drops my calls all the time" and "Why can't I call and surf at the same time"..... Of course then my speeds will pick up so no skin off my butt!

Has anyone actually counted the number of threads where this same argument is gone over time and time again?
Could one of the mods just merge them into one gigantic thread? It would save the same arguments being repeated yet again.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Then again next year. And the year after that when they finally go carrier free and nothing changes BECAUSE IT'LL STILL BE A GSM PHONE.
05-17-2010, 04:08 AM #58
is it a sign apple lack money?
05-17-2010, 04:24 AM #59
Does verizon make micro sims?
I need the verizon iphone so bad but the retarded 5 gb/month limit and slow network is really gonna piss me off when I tether to my laptop. Lookin at the bright side my dad owns 2 wireless zone verizon zone stores so I can get it w/ a demo line @ 15 bucks a month data and free voice. Plus I wont drop calls

not believing it until Apple officially announces this.
