    OK so the iPhone 4s is on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. Does that mean that I can take my iPhone that I got on Verizon, and activate it on Sprint when I get pissed off at the big Red V? AND how is the iPhone handling Sim Cards on Verizon?

    There are plenty of world phones on Verizon currently. They have SIM card slots that can't be used until the phone is unlocked though. I assume Apple will lock the iPhone if you purchase it on a contract and offer unlocked iPhones that'll work on any carrier for $649/$749.

    Not unless it's unlocked.

    not true. The SIM slots can and will be used...the phone will come with a SIM in it. Its for if you go overseas and need to roam on a GSM network. All world phones come with a SIM installed.

    Kinda funny to see a SIM card that says verizon on it actually...

    Not true. Even world phones like the Blackberry Storm on Verizon have to be unlocked to work with SIM cards. It may have a SIM card slot but the device will still need to be unlocked for it to work. It still hasn't been said whether the phones will be locked or unlocked.
