    Well two undercover ninjas from the CrackBerry forums said it's coming and one even stated July now. What do you all think?

    I think this would be a devastating blow to at&t btw. POLL!

    Hi

    I think it will happen but Apple would have to either.

    1) Make two iPhone one for CDMA and one for GSM

    2) Give the iPhone the ability to work on both systems

    3) Wait until LTE is up and running.

    There is no way that Apple would just make the next iPhone for CDMA carriers.

    There are rumors in the UK that Apple is about to end their exclusive deal with O2 for the iPhone. Maybe Apple are ending all their exclusive deals worldwide and if the next iPhone works on both CDMA & GSM then why not on Verizon?

    I won't believe it until I see a leaked demo unit photographed against CrackBerry Kevin's green coffee table!

    (Though the CB ninja are never to be underestimated...)

    I think we are still at least a year away of having any legitimate discussion of this happening. We can speculate all we want but this topic, across all the tech forums, is just the result of a rumor milling and high hopes.

    Yep! Also have 1 year left on AT&T, so I wouldn't switch until then anyways...

    I think they will in a few years. I doubt Apple is going to invest millions in manufacturing to make an iPhone for one provider, but when everyone goes to the LTE their exclusive with ATT should be done and then Verizon can join the party.

    I still wonder what would have happen if Verizon took them up on the iPhone when Apple asked? Seems like it worked out better for Apple to go with ATT.

    I'm so sick of all this Verizon talk that I now hope that the iPhone is never available on Verizon

    I've been on AT&T and only AT&T since my very first crappy Nokia. I won't be surprised if I never leave.

    I highly doubt it. AT&T is good. I am not quite sure why so many Verizonians think it sucks. And some of my friends who are on Verizon will be on the phone with me and they are driving and I'm in my house with an AT&T cell tower within 1/4 mile from my house (always full bars) and he'll cut out and get dropped and then try and blame it on my AT&T and I'm like no way dude. I'm not even moving so I doubt it. He has a Storm and the one button is already broken and it's not even 3 months old.

    Me too. Got my first Nokia when I turned 18 and they had to put a hold one of my credit cards since I hadn't really established my credit at the time. I've gone from AT&T Mobile, to Cingular, and now at&t.

    Wasn't Verizon rumored to be switching to GSM, because of the LTE rollout? If they do, Apple will not have to change anything.

    The second guy. If you can check on Crackberry for multiple user names from the same person, do so.

    This rumor has been going on for ages. If they get the iPhone good for them if they don't oh well. I don't see it happening though.

    I do not think this will happen at all. At least not until LTE is deployed.

    Verizon itself does not use SIM cards.

    That slot is simply for SIM cards for when you are overseas or roaming on a carrier that may require a SIM card.

    Most carriers (if not all) in Europe are GSM so they have to have a way to make their world phones run on that network.

    Felt like resurrecting this post just to say that it's now over a year since this post was started and there still isn't a Verizon iPhone.

    It won't die until it's not a rumor anymore or Apple comes out and says we will or will not have iPhone for Verizon.
