    The Incase smokey clear bumper case sure does make it look snazzy though. And offer a little protection at the same time.

    I think it sucks that everyone has to pick up Apple's slack and find a solution to their own problem, while they're sitting in their high chairs smoking cigars with the money rolling in

    Yeah my wife is too. I'm not sure which one she picked. I know I got my free bumper in what seemed like only a week or so...

    You mean 3% And that is 97% coverage with EDGE only. I live in Michigan and there aren't too many cities WITH 3G period. I would bet AT&T 3G is some ridiculously low percentage coverage. In the low teens...if that.

    You know it is funny, I ask a simple question about the china rollout and the fanboys come out in droves to whine about the idea of a CDMA iPhone.

    Yes I have a Ip4 through AT&T. I would like to see another major carrier have it though. Then we would see some competive pricing in the US market. If you don't want that to happen then you must either be stupid, or live a very charmed life where money has no effect on you.

    Be realistic. If Verizon had that many iPhones on their network don't you think they'd be brought to their knees as well? Maybe not as bad as AT&T but it isn't some oasis of unlimited bandwith and guaranteed service everywhere with Rev. A speeds all the time. That much data usage on ANY network is crippling to a telecommunications company.
    if verizon got iphone then it would take some iphone users off the network freeing it up some and verizon LTE 4g network is coming out the same time verizon is suppose to get iphone in january

    You act like verizon is cheaper than AT&T? They may not have the best coverage but all smartphones are expensive as far as monthly plans so I am not arguing that I just wish they would make other gsm models that were compatible with tmobiles 3G network.

    I think you missed my point completely. Let me be clearer about this. I don't really care what other carrier gets the iphone, as long as someone else has it so it will bring down cost due to competitive pricing. It's called good old fashion economics...

    How come Apple first went to Verizon to ask for the exclusive contract for the first iphone?
