    Verizon Wireless Said to Start Offering IPhone in January
    2010-06-29 18:52:44.850 GMT


    By Amy Thomson
    June 29 (Bloomberg) -- Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S.
    mobile-phone company, will start selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone next year, ending AT&T Inc.’s exclusive hold on the smartphone in the U.S., two people familiar with the plans said.
    The device will be available to customers in January, according to the people, who declined to be named because the information isn’t public. Brenda Raney, a spokeswoman for Verizon Wireless, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Natalie Kerris, an Apple spokeswoman, and Peter Thonis, a Verizon Communications Inc. spokesman, declined to comment.

    If true quite of bit of people will switch to VZ which will give At&t a much needed decongesting network break.

    I dont know I still think this is just a rumor. I think AT&T has the contract till june of 2012 if i was a 5year contract that they had from the beginning. I could see the iphone probably on tmobile before i see it on verizon. Or at least on Verizon when they launch their 4G network which i think will be GSM based i could be wrong though.

    Can you provide a link where VERIZON and not Bloomberg states that please!

    I wouldn't switch, I'm getting 4+Mbps with AT&T now, in fact if it does happen (I hope) AT&T's network would instantaneously become much better.

    I'll believe it when it happens there have been rumors since the first gen iPhone like this. And I also think the contract goes through 2012 with AT&T

    It's just another rumor. I'll believe it when Verizon and Apple announce it.

    Omg... This must be true. Lol. I just made
    a statement on twitter, let me quote it.

    One day Bloogberg will be right about the iPhone coming to Verizon. Might as well say it every season, I'm sure you'll be right once.

    If and when it happens i think it spells the end of the blackberry as a consumer device.

    Why would AT&T users be upset? Only immature ones will. I would love it if it went to Verizon. I'm staying with AT&T but I would love to have the choice and also get some of the congestion off AT&T. I would like that. What follows this is a plethora of Android phones to AT&T now. No doubt their agreement with Apple has kept high end Android devices off their network. But if iPhone is no longer exclusive look for powerful Android devices offered through AT&T. In my opinion it's a win-win for AT&T, VZW and any other customers. Choice and competition. But once again, we'll see if this is true.
