It already IS out in the US. We're talking about a CDMA iPhone 4, which could very well be for a launch in a country that doesn't have the iPhone currently. I'm not ruling out that it's going to be a US launch, just adding alternatives for people to think about.
Well given Apple is an American company and the iPhone always comes out first in the US, it will be smart to have it on a network that's based HERE IN THE US.
$60/mo for capped data, not unlimited. Current speculation is 2GB/mo like AT&T. That's double what their 3G unlimited plan is.
Meaning unlimited or a set amount like 2GB?
Add voice to that and your still looking at well over $100. I pay $60 for unlimited everything with my blackberry Boost mobile account. Plus I'm not on a contract.
That's something I've been thinking about as well. Verizon likes to (to quote George Carlin) smear their logo feces all over their products, casing and software. It will be interesting to see what happens when (cause let's face it, it's very likely to happen someday) they aquire the rights to also have an iPhone on their network.
It will be very hard to see who has the Verizon iPhone as Apple will not allow any other branding other then their own own their phones.
Realistically, though, as long as AT&T doesn't lose the phone altogether, I'll still be happy.
