    If It seems true, then I'm right about Verizon getting an iPhone 3G, then that's what I figured. They would def not roll out with iPhone 4s. So Verizon gets an old 3G Version then there still gonna suck. No ones gonna want it. There gonna try it out realize it's not worth the switch.

    I agree! All the AT&T haters need to go to Verizon! My service in Dallas is good already and I look forward to everyone jumping ship so it gets even better, haha!

    BTW, I've been on MMI for a while and still don't know why so many people hate Essany. What'd he do?

    Now if you're with Sprint, you're gonna be a**ed out since they are doing their own 4G/Wimax technology, won't be as big as the other 3.
    Where have you heard that T-Mobile is going to LTE? I almost hope this happens just so the rumors stop and people quit talking about it. Until Sprint or T-Mobile get the iPhone I could really care less since AT&T and Verizon are the 2 most expensive carriers. Thank god for Android that's all I have to say.

    That is the problem. Case in point why 98% of the EU is GSM. CDMA= no need to Unlock. Talk about carrier specific.

    The normal practice to lock a CDMA phone is the 6 digit SPC. On Verizon, this is usually all 0's. Since the iPhone will no longer be exclusive, Apple may not bother with any sort of additional carrier locking functionality - but you never know.

    It will probably be possible to get a CDMA iPhone onto Cricket, Page Plus (unless it's banned, and it probably will be) or MetroPCS. Sprint doesn't allow any BYOD, but it wouldn't surprise me if a CDMA iPhone finally makes them change their tune.

    Get off messany back he reports the stuff people want to know just because it hasn't happened yet don't mean it won't. He isn't the only writer covering the verizon iPhone a lot of other outlets are writing about it. If u don't like it don't read the article.

    I for one will be glad when people jump ship to verizon I want the extra bandwidth so I have lightening fast speeds. Also it will give AT&T more reason to crank out faster 3G and their version of 4G

    Actually, it'll look more like the mutant offspring between an iPhone and a lifesaver. But umm, yeah, it will be white.

    I feel like the real story here is that 15 of the 23 million iPhone customers with AT&T have re-upped for another 2 year contract!

    If Verizon gets the iPhone and I wanted to change I sure would not be the first one to go to Verizon.... However I hope it does so there is more competition between companies.... then it might mean better deals for us as well!

    I'm telling you, Verizon is such a better company than AT&T. Everything except the CDMA.

    But... Even when this starts, AT&T has the experience of networking an iPhone. It will probably be very sluggish for Verizon.

    I'm not convinced verizon will get the iPhone 4. Why would Apple sell the CDMA iP4 for 3-4 months and then introduce the iP5? Seems like they'd just wait and save themselves a TON of money till June/July and announce the iP5 on Verizon. If there is an announcement at CES or around 2/14, I'm sure it'll be about the iP5 on Verizon, not the 4.

    What makes the most sense to me is for Apple to wait till 2012 (isn't that the AT&T exclusivity range anyway?) when both AT&T and Verizon are running LTE in large portions of the country and build just one version (an LTE version) of the iPhone that you can get for either VZW or AT&T. They'd save money in manufacturing costs as well as legal costs for not breaking their deal with AT&T. Win/Win. And I'm sticking with AT&T either way. I get great service and GSM is a MUCH more user friendly technology. SIM cards and voice/data at the same time is win.

    My guess is that they made a slight variant version (if they did at all) from the China version. It's not exactly the same technology, but very close.

    Hey, we got 3.x this time!
    But seriously, I'm glad this is finally coming to a head and ending. Plus it's good to help reduce network strain.
