    I hope they cancel their contract whenever it ends.

    Verizon!

    Okay?

    I'm sure the contract WILL be cancelled....when it ends.

    There will either be a new contract, or they'll extend it before it runs out.
    So when it runs out, it'll run out.:rolleyes:

    Something tells me that when the exclusive agreement between Apple and AT&T ends, we'll still see a an AT&T iPhone as well as a Verizon iPhone. Apple would probably want to do this to gain more smartphone market share.

    I dunno...Verizon's restrictions on devices are a "bag of hurt"

    Yeah I know! I hate that a lot of their smartphones don't have Wi-Fi built-in. On top of that, they lock down the GPS on their phones so the customer has to pay for it! I hate that part.

    So many myths. As far as smartphones go:

    • Verizon doesn't change smartphone UIs.
    • Verizon doesn't stop any maker from putting in WiFi.
    • Verizon doesn't lock down GPS (any more)... the only part that was true.
    • Verizon allows any app to be downloaded from anywhere. Apple doesn't.
    • Verizon allows theming. Apple doesn't.
    • Verizon allows Slingbox over 3G. ATT doesn't.
    • Verizon usually requires GPS and 3G. Apple originally was missing those.
    This reminds me of Sprint "facts" that won't die either. Companies change. The stories don't.

    For Apple to change all the insides of the iPhone to accommodate verizon would be pretty stupid on their part.

    I see the iPhone opened up to t-mobile WAY before verizon IMO
