    Along with the anticipated revealing of the new tablet, a lot of people are saying that Apple will announce they have terminated the exclusive iPhone contract with AT&T.

    Assuming that is true, how many people would buy an iPhone with Verizon service over a Droid? Also assume that the price structure is the same as it currently is with AT&T.

    I would. I currently carry a phone and an iPod Touch. This would allow me to consolidate.

    Question.... is it true you HAVE to subscribe to internet for a Blackberry/iPhone, or a Droid ? My current phone, i can get internet via wifi.

    I would be SHOCKED if Apple comes out with a CDMA version of the iPhone, especially when LTE is just around the corner. I think you may definitely see an announcement that ends AT&T exclusivity will be announced today, along with the 4.0 OS, and the long rumored iTablet/Slate/whatever you want to call it.

    I am about to switch to Verizon for service coverage reasons here in East Texas. I currently have the 3g and an older 2g. I love my iPhone, but the cost is driving me insane. I am thinking that i will get the new tablet when it comes out and just go back to a regular phone with Verizon. I'm tired of paying 100.00 plus for a dang phone. I know personally what a CDMA network takes to work (worked for PetroCom), and with as large of a customer base as they have 100.00+ per month is raping people IMO.

    You won't see a CDMA iPhone, especiailly with all the ads that verizon has been shoving down our throats how bad the iPhone is.

    The iPhone will be available on Verizon as a 4G phone, probably in 2-3 years.

    I havent seen them trashing the iPhone, just ATTs network.

    I have also heard the rumors and they have been going around for quite some time now, so I take them with a grain of salt. One of those things I don't think about until it happens, if it does. I probably wouldn't get one anyway, Im quite happy with my tour and a real keyboard. I wish it had Wifi though.

    I think the Verizon/iPhone thing is myth. I don't think it will happen anytime real soon.

    Definitely a myth. Possibly a mytheth. Not a mythter. ;)

    Won't happen. Just like everything else in life - just because it's a popular rumor (Paul is dead) doesn't make it true.
