Since they're both CDMA phones. Any chance of this happening.
It's certainly possible, but there has been no word on that at all. We'll see next week I guess.
I want to say it would be possible, but not officially...at least immediately. I say this because verizon is holding the media event and not apple.
From what I read somewhere, VZW offered apple some extra $$$ to keep the iPhone out of sprints hands.
You couldnt wait just a few more days could you? Its not even confirmed that there is a CDMA iPhone yet
10 years with Sprint and very disappointed in there (lack of) presence at CES, I may jump to Verizon.
Is that even legal? Of course then that raises the old question of is it legal that AT&T had exclusivity for this long too.
I never understood why people thought that it was illegal. Maybe it should be illegal that no other carried has the Motorola Droid then? Exclusivity is a contract between two companies. It happens everyday, not just in the tech world. There is nothing illegal about it.
I am really wondering what band the GSM radio will have. If it is a world phone, I would think it has a possibility to run on T-Mobile. I certainly wouldn't think it would use the same bands as ATT.
I'm sure the wording is such that it would pass muster
I forget where I read it but it was presented more then conjecture
Of course it's legal...it was not a back room deal...it's based on a contract drawn up in a nation of laws
I never really thought much about it as being illegal as it must not be because AT&T has been doing this for several years now. But it does appear unseemly kind of like that whole Microsoft anti-trust suit over having IE built into Windows, effectively crushing the other browsers out.
My friend if this phone is coming to Verizon it won't be a "world phone" it will be restricted to North America most likely strictly Verizon's network...and why hasn't the FCC application leaked?
Just like the other poster mentioned have motorola and verizon broken the law with the droid exclusivity?
Why wouldn't it be legal? If the iPhone is available on only 2 carriers, we can pay you $250 per contract. If it's on 3 carriers, we can pay you $125 per contract.
