If their network were good I would agree but it blows. Apple has options to opt out and THEY WILL. When customers have problems with a network it creates problems with their phones which makes Apple look like the culprit when it's really AT&T's issue. Verizon will get it soon but don't be surprised if they don't go exclusive. If they give it to everyone they can profit alot more and then they'd also have a CDMA version to go with their GSM which means IPhones worldwide.

Here's another link to an article from a real journalist that puts things in perspective.

Faster Forward - No, not another 'Verizon iPhone' story!

There will never be a CDMA iPhone - Apple has no need to sell on Verizon right now nor to develop a different hardware design. Most of the world uses GSM, Verizon USA/CDMA is small in perspective. Soonest you'd even see a Verizon iPhone would be in about 2-3 years when Apple retires its latest hardware design, which just came out this month, and the telcos are all on LTE instead of CDMA/GSM.

Ok...Here's some more hot air for you!

Apple will begin mass-producing the device, which will be based on the CDMA technology used in Verizon-compatible phones, by the end of 2010, the paper said, citing "people briefed by Apple."

The iPhone's arrival at Verizon Wireless will make the handset available to millions of new customers. It will also end Apple's exclusive deal with AT&T (T), which for the last three years has been the sole iPhone service provider.

It's funny Verizon will get the iphone in 2011, after the Droid is slaughtering the iphone and it doesn't matter anymore.

Apple will not do another exclusive....They've learned they're lesson on that one.....

The Iphone will be released on All Carriers..is my bet...Sprint Tmobile and Verizon....which is what has to happen to keep these networks from buckeling....we all see ATT network get slaughtered with the weight of the Iphone...what makes you think the same wont happen to Verizon?????

I can confirm since the mad rush of Android Superphones (EVO, Epic, Droid, X, Droid Inc) both Sprint and Verizon have seen their EVDO (3G) networks slow significantly and neither have the number of Droids on their network of Iphones that are on ATT.....

The Iphone needs to go on all networks to balance the load.....and to get some of the load off ATT...
