Have there been any more rumors about the iphone and Verizon (or any other carrier)?

    I'm just wondering because our contract with Verizon (because Alltel sold us out) is ending in late November. We are considering switching to At&t because two of us want iphones. Also could anyone give me an idea of what two iphones on one plan would cost? Do they group the data or do you have to pay the $30 for each line? How about texting, same question?

    The rumor is that Verizon will not be getting the iPhone any time soon, if ever. You'll get wishes from others, but they aren't rumors. I don't see it happening.

    You'll have to pay $30 for each phone, so $60 total. Sorry

    IDK about messaging, since I don't have that (I think it's like $15-20, but you can check easily enough on AT&T's website).

    I've been wondering the same thing. AT&T's website won't allow you to put two iphones on one plan on the website so you can't see what anything is going to cost.

    No CDMA iPhone, ever.

    An LTE iPhone unlockable and usable on Verizon's LTE network? Maybe.

    Rumors are a dime-a-dozen.

    Like MMS. It doesn't even exist but people want it. ;)

    Family plan for unlimited text is $30 (for entire family). Data is $30 for each iPhone.

    Rather unlikely for Verizon. There are several roadblocks in the way that neither Apple nor Verizon seem motivated to address.

    I would say the only possibility of the iPhone on another carrier (until LTE) is T-Mobile, and I think that's only a matter of time (AT&T's contract).

    If Apple were smart they'd allow T-Mobile to officially carry the iPhone asap. With the competition AT&T will have to shape up quickly.

    i believe it has to do with a signature that says something along the lines of: if you can't write anything nice... post a picture of a bunny!

    edit... here it is... iphone.aggie's:

    Since 3G is one of the search-able features on their website, I would assume yet.

    wow... MMS threads galore, Verizon+iPhone threads galore... once again, if there was news (or a notable rumor), it would be on the front page of MR.

    but the bunny pics make this thread worthwhile :D

    I can start a new one real quick if you want. That's as good as any rumor you will hear.

    The iPhone 3G & 3Gs will be available on Sprint, Verizon & TMobile starting Nov. 22nd. Plan pricing will start at $59.99 (all carriers), with monthly data (required)to start at $45.99 per month. There will be no option for SMS, only MMS. An add-on physical keyboard will be offered to those with no taste.

    The newest rumor is Apple will break new barriers with the iPhone 4G

    It will be both CDMA and GSM compatible and unlocked. You'll be able to use your phone without a contract on any network including the one Apple is rolling out which will offer an unlimited voice/data/text (domestic and international) for $59.99 a month pay-as-you-go.

    It's going to be an amazing 2010!!

    T-Mobile has 3G, they are slooooowly rolling it out to different markets. The only thing is it is an oddball frequency, so phone manufacturers have to make a special "T-Mo 3G" version for them. That, plus the low numbers at initial rollout, have been what's hurt their 3G options.

    It does seem to be improving, but that's more because of their relationship with HTC than it does because everyone is all over the T-Mobile bandwagon.

    Not going to happen.

    Even if not for the fact that Apple is simply not going to make a CDMA phone... it's clear by the phones they're picking up for 2010 that they're not looking at the iPhone.

    As far as cost goes, you have to have a data plan for each iPhone.
    Cheapest voice plan is $39.99, plus $9.99 for the 2nd line. And that's assuming you're not adding anything else on there, such as texting.

    Just thought I would go back in time and let you know that here in 2011 - there's tons of new rumors.
