    Sprint doesn't have enough subscribers to generate the sales Apple is interested in. So as far as CDMA carriers go, its Verizon or nothing. My money is on nothing until 2012.

    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.

    i figured something of this sort, but my friends have verizon and there phones are pretty fast. i dont know, might just be my area, att isnt the greatest around me but i wanted an iphone.


    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.

    Palm has released the Pre and Pixi on 3 carriers now. AT&T, Verizon, & Sprint

    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.

    WOW first time ever that I am.. First!
    Good i hope million upon million will drop att and go with verizon, lets see how soon you would want to drop verizon after iphone users will kill the network, and by moving to verizon att will actually gain customers because system will free up and the 3g speed is much faster than verizon. so please apple get the cdma iphone so i can laugh and bet how fast it will take for verizon to be the worst cell provider in the US

    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.

    A merged thread would be way too big and would just collpase on itself, creating a small rumor/stupidity vortex that would consume a good portion of the internet when this summer Apple once again releases a phone just on AT&T.

    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.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    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
