Apple Taking iPhone to Verizon

Is Apple Producing an iPhone For Verizon?

Ever since the iPad was announced, Apple fans have had their ears to the ground, waiting for news on the next iPhone release. It's expected that Apple will unleash a new iPhone this Summer, as it has since 2007. But could all of that change this year? According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is releasing two new iPhones this year — one for its long-standing AT&T customers in the Summer, and one for Verizon Wireless customers in the Fall.

I'm a bit skeptical, mostly because this doesn't sound like Apple's forté. I mean, let's face it — Apple is not one to veer from its winning formula. According to the report, Apple will be continuing its relationship with AT&T, but will make an identical-in-all-ways CDMA-friendly handset for new customers over at "Big Red" (CDMA being the wireless network that is used by Verizon, and not by AT&T). There have been rumors of the Apple moving to other networks since last year, so where there's smoke there's usually fire. Other rumors for the next iPhone are a front-facing camera, multitasking, and a nice 940x640 resolution screen. What do you think — if the iPhone heads to Verizon, will you make a switch?

I am really excited for the upgrade. Multi-tasking would pretty much make the iphone Ideal!

If the iPhone comes to Verizon, I'll most likely switch. I switched to AT&T from Verizon to get the iPhone, so why not? Of course, it's up to my dad, since I'm on his service plan and plan to stay on it for as long as he'll let me, LOL.

I have been waiting to upgrade my iPhone in the hopes that they are adding Verizon as a provider. The AT&T service in Los Angeles sucks and I spend more time recalling people than I actually spend having a conversation. I just spent the last few weeks working in Las Vegas and they are still on the Edge network because AT&T hasn't figured out how to get the 3G working there, but they are still charging people the higher 3G data plan price. This company needs to go down.

I have been waiting for the iphone to switch to Verizon! I refuse to switch to AT&T.... My boyfriend's iphone drops calls all the time and he hates AT&T. So I've been sticking with Verizon and hoping that they will one day get the iphone. Until then.... I just have my handy flip-phone, with no internet, haha.

I am definitely not an iphone person so even if i got one free I wouldn't use it (hell i'd sell it lol) I just want to say goodbye to at&t if the iphone is available for other networks. That's what's keeping them alive.

Well given I just signed a 2 year contract in Nov... not anytime soon. But AT&T will need to up the ante in their service, which is very slow and choppy for such a functional phone. Also, the switch will depend on the pricing for the plan Verizon will put out. It's already a $100/month plan with AT&T... if they surpass that... who knows...

I'm all for it, but I agree with PiNkY PiNk, Verizon is all about the Droid. Though some have said Verizon lucked out with getting the Droid by not being picked first to have the iPhone for many reasons. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I seriously doubt it. It looks as though verizon has put alot of its marbles in the android basket. It'd be good to see the iphone on any other network though, but if I had to choose, it'd be sprint
