All these APPL ditching ATT and partnering with VZW talks led me to think if that is really possible in reality. Supposedly, let's say APPL is not happy with ATT and Steve Jobs wants a new carrier for his iPhone. And, Jobs chooses VZW (or Sprint, T-mobile, whatever). Then, what would happen to millions of iPhone users who are still under contract with ATT? Steve Jobs must let those people continue to FULLY enjoy iPhone until their contract ends. So, there will be 2 carriers for iPhone in US for at least next 2 years because there will be people signing iPhone contracts with ATT the day before APPL announces they are moving to Verizon, unless APPL and ATT agrees to stop people from signing up for iPhone for 1 month prior to APPL's move to Verizon--this 1 month gap or vacuum is highly unlikely and even if there is a gap, it's still 23 months. Second, if Verizon wants to share the house with APPL, what would that do to Blackberry? If Verizon has iPhone, a significant number of Verizon's Blackberry users would want to switch to iPhone. Even though Blackberry is not exclusive with Verizon, Blackberry's largest number of users are with Verizon. So, Blackberry won't be happy to share Verizon's house with APPL. As much as Verizon (supposedly) wants APPL, making Blackberry unhappy is a serious corporate problem that can't be ignored or taken lightly. Also, ATT has made billions of investments in 3G and ATT really has become the perfect house to live in for iPhone and APPL knows that. You wouldn't want to move into a less comfortable house when you are currently living in the best house there is. Same goes for ATT; if ATT loses iPhone, it will be like Mars' Candy Division losing M&M's and Snickers and Twix and Skittles COMBINED and only left with Milky Way (Samsung) and 3 Musketeers (Nokia) and Dove Chocolate (LG). In conclusion, in REALITY, I would say ditching an exclusive partner and finding a new exclusive partner for APPL iPhone is an extremely complicated matter and will not be done unless there is a dramatic shake up in the whole US cell phone industry. APPL exclusively marrying VZW probably not just up to APPL and VZW. Granted, APPL is less stuck with ATT than vice versa, nevertheless, I believe ATT and APPL are really stuck with each other now and they both know it. This MMS thing is only a minor problem that just needs be worked out in their marriage. I will say their marriage will last at least several more years.
