    As in politics, in business too, there are no permanent friends or enemies; only permanent interests. At least we know it now. If the rumors are true, Apple and Verizon might be engaged in a partnership to test a new 4G LTE iPhone that could be released over the Verizon...

      Verizon. But I fear if Verizon gets the iphone, everyone will switch, and Verizon will be the new ATT with a cripple network. Ill just have to wait and see...

      HSPA+ is the future, plain and simple. Verizon cannot keep up with AT&T as far as speed.

      The iphone wont get ported to Verizon, unless apple can get an extremely good deal.

      that being said, ive used verizon before, and its horrible. i cant understand why anyone would want it. there whole campaign about having more coverage seems to be nothing more than a ruse. I have never had a point in my life with AT&T that i have been either unable to make a call when i wanted to, or had a call droped. while friends with verizon frequently complain of these issues.

      you can use the iphone on verizon now if u unlock it. i see no reason to switch.

      If apple ever launch a CMDA phone for verizon , I'm hopping that it would be a dual phone that supports GMS as well like Blackberry Storm it can be used out of the US using a GMS SIM card

      Verizon has the best coverage of any network in America. So good bye Att.

      after signing droid and getting backlashed by verizon i dont think they will be doing business. as the verizon driod release date get closer each day. there will be more advertisements against the iphone. its just the beginning of droid vs iphone.

      Wife has a Blackberry Tour and her data coverage is about as good as my iPhone on the house WiFi. I won't even comment on signal and call reliability. iPhone on Verizon in 2010 sounds great to me.

      I can't imagine using an iPhone on Verizon. AT&T is practically the only company that leaves the features of their phones in tact. Verizon is known for locking many features. For instance, my friend and I used to have a RAZR V3XX, mine with AT&T, theirs with Verizon. I put a microSD card in mine with MP3s and they played without a hitch. I put the same card in my friend's phone and it wouldn't recognize the files because Verizon blocked that feature to force users to buy songs from their VCast service. They always take the OS and try to "make it their own". AT&T usually leaves the OS alone for the most part. They would add a few things such as branding but all features from the manufacturer would still be there. This is one thing I've always loved about AT&T. Verizon would be too restricting. Also, they will probably put caps on their data usage like they do with their mobile broadband service. Verizon is definitely out to screw their customers money wise. I'm perfectly happy with AT&T. The grass is always greener on the other side.

      I so highly doubt Verizon will get the iPhone.

    • via Wordpress

      This is most brilliant commentary. While att network is not as vast as Verizon's (I don't need coverage in Montana right now) millions of people jumping the ship to Verizon will only make Att network stronger. The iphone is a goliath and don't think the andriod will be able to slow its roll.
      The great thing about Verizon is that they are managed very, very well. They have no problem saying, "we are the best network and you will pay extra to have iphone data on the best network. If you don't want the best network, go to att or T-mobile." In other words, they will charge as much as they feel is necessary regardless of economic conditions, in order to provide the best service. But Verizon execs don't understand (they are really peaved by this) is why att customers would be a phone over a network. This is the main reason why they passed on the iphone to begin with.
      Okay, I just had to get that out.

      Competition is always good for consumers. More options is good.
      My worry is the idea of a CDMA iPhone. It can be done, but what happens to the idea of the iPhone being a world phone. If you can't travel with it, I won't buy. Thinking about how the antenna (largest of the phone extras) makes the iPhone so much thicker than the iPod touch, would we be talking about an even thicker phone that supports both GSM and CDMA??

      dude GSM phones can't be used on a CDMA network what you smoking?

      I've had AT&T for years and own the iPhone I'm from Texas and never had any problems with the the phone or the service some of y'all are saying that verizon would be cheaper when actually AT&T offers the best deals and in fact is cheaper than verizon. The iPhone has many capabilities which mean verizon will find a way to charge people more for services. I really hope that I don't see verizon copy AT&T by getting the iPhone. As for the 4g AT&T will be making the network stormger and faster the conversion should be expected with in the next 2 years and are releasing a new version of the iPhone in 2010. If verizon does get apple to make a deal it would be a better decision to make the iPhone a real world phone with dual compatibilities the choice to go with a gsm or CDMA network.
