    Why would they not work on CDMA? Neither facetime nor skype use voice. They both go over 3G/WIFI.

    Ugh... finally. All AT&T haters run away to Verizon and free up our network. Im excited for that and... Competition. With Verizon and AT&T with the iPhone it's gonna be an all out war with who has what features perhaps driving phone pricing or data plans down and who knows what. Not to mention if another provider (sprint) gets the iphone soon.

    BTW, Total and complete FAIL on no voice+data... that is the most useful feature that makes the iPhone experience that much better. I cant tell you how many times I have looked at movies, weather, maps, news, or googled something while I was on the phone with someone. Have fun on Verizon... Im sticking with AT&T for now. They've treated me well here in Chicago.

    You know those 18 month upgrades for existing customers? LOL FOrget it with Verizon, once your hooked your theirs for 24! My daughter's BF has Verizon, customer noservice, noupgrades, phone breaks no service, no no no is what you hear a lot from them.....and yes they make sure you can hear that now!
    Right, which is why they won;t go with Verizon. For the VAST majority of people that do not travel frequently, Verizon is a fine choice. This is all anyone is saying. THE MAJORITY has no need for a world phone...

    Yea. CDMA might not have the features, but it has quality. And they are now getting into LTE to solve the problems.

    People are forgetting that most of the users that get this phone will be existing Verizon customers and will be used to the no voice and data at the same time, so really that is not going to be a big issue.

    Last year's phone? The iPhone 4 is current tech. We have no reason to assume that the next model will NOT be available simultaneously on ATT and Verizon...

    I was hoping this was the case, but after reading everyone's comments it doesn't appear that this will happen, unfortunately... Although the competition may drive AT&T to adjust their prices.

    I wonder if FaceTime from iPhone 4/AT&T will work against iPhone 4/Verizon. That's a very important question.

    Some people have broader needs than your narrow scope of the world eludes to.

    I would say yes. Facetime works across all apple products.. iPhones/Macs/iPods... regardless of what internet provider you have. Facetime is an internet to internet connection.

    Soo, Messany's fired, right? I mean, what else does the guy have to write about?
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

    Huh, somehow I expected this to be posted by Messany lol. I don't mean to knock him, but he did write a majority of the Verizon rumors.

    Yeah. Last year's phone. Current tech? I guess, as long as you're not comparing to anything but Apple products. Compare it to an EVO or a MyTouch 2 and it gets wrecked upon. Just like basically every review comparing them has stated.
