Verizon CEO confirms he's told Apple he wants the iPhone, won't say if he's getting it -- Engadget
I am quite sure that their network would be strained under heavy iPhone use.
My question is, why are people doubting that Big Red would ever get it? Maybe not this year (I suspect 2012), but most certainly they will. They are moving to an international LTE standard that can handle data at the same time as voice, although voice will still use CDMA in the meantime until full LTE is implemented.

If VZW does get it (or T-Mobile, or any other carrier), it will be really interesting to see what happens to those networks. AT&T has gotten slammed, in part because of the iPhone. The huge popularity of the phone has caused overloading on their network in many places (fortunately, the Phoenix metro area does not seem to be adversely affected)... but I wonder how VZW would have handled the stress and demand on their network had they had a 4 year exclusive deal for the iPhone. It's food for thought...

Wired's latest article on the subject of AT&T vs Apple mentioned that Qualcomm was developing a dual technology radio that would work on CDMA & GSM
And last year, Qualcomm began working with Apple on a chip that could allow the iPhone to operate on both the AT&T and Verizon networks

Haha I didn't believe the guy nor do I think it's coming to Verizon in January. I just thought it was interesting that he would randomly say that then STOP trying to sell her an android phone when she said nothing about an iPhone in the first place.

Agreed, Verizon employees will be the last to know. They will find out 2/3 days before release about the iPhone; if it ever comes. When the iPhone 2g came out, we weren't trained on anything till 2 days before the release. Didn't even know it was coming. And on top of that, we had to sign confidentiality agreements and could fired AND sued by AT&T & Apple if we talked or posted ANYTHING before then.
