    No, because the Torch runs on GSM networks while VZW uses CDMA networks.

    Eventually this form factor might get to VZW, but I've not heard of plans in the works for a Torch-like device on VZW.

    I think its more like VZW gets the Storm and AT&T gets the Torch...sorta like give and take. I think if we ever see the Storm move to AT&T then we might be able to see the Torch over on VZW. Just food for thought.

    I realize that one is GSM and the other is CDMA. My question is will there be a CDMA slider?

    ANYTHING is possible but at this point no info has leaked about a CDMA (or LTE) version of a Torch or Torch like device. We have plenty of info on the clam, and SOME info on a coming Storm device, actually 2 Storm devices, one is a simple refresh of the Storm2 with a bit more memory and camera upgrade, BUT the more intriguing Storm device is an LTE Storm that is coming (we've heard) early next year with MUCH beefier specs and possibly???? a brand new OS????

    Seeing that the Torch was a joint effort between at&t and RIM, I'd say no.

    Who knows dude. You can do just as much research as anyone on here can. Instead of being asking other people to answer questions you have, go online and find the answer(or the best one available) for yourself. ATT just got the Torch.

    I was just asking a question in the VZW forum as I'm sure VZW employees read this. Was just throwing it out there. Your posts are completely unnecessary and add no value. Thanks though.

    The question really is, how long is the Torch contracted to be an AT&T exclusive? Once the exclusivity ends, then perhaps there will be a CDMA Torch.

    Yeah, im a Verizon employee.....again, its a question thats asked 100 times a week and the answer is always the same. We add no value? You added nothing but a pointless post in the Verizon forum.

    That appears to be a Droid slider and you KNOW how much Verizon loves Droids, so you never know.

    I'm just curious and I don't know much about different carriers and their network types. I was reading the front page articles here about the Torch coming to Bell, Telus and Rogers and from what I can tell by googling/researching is that 2 of them are CDMA carriers like Verizon?

    Does this mean that it could be more likely that a Torch could come to Verizon seeing as a CDMA Torch is being sold in Canada? Just a question and I'm not sure about this because I don't know much about carriers and network types.

    While Bell & Telus have CDMA networks, they also have GSM (3G only) networks, and the Torch will operate on their GSM side, NOT their CDMA side. Sorry!
