Hey just got this email from my father-in-law "Hi, Yesterday I spoke with a friend in corporate sales from Verizon. Here's what she said is happening concerning the iPhone at Verizon. The iPhone 4 is not 4G so that is confusing. It is 3G Verizon's iPhone will be 4G She says 4G is about 10 times faster than 3G (I'm not sure how reliable that info is) She is just guessing that the Verizon iPhone will be out by mid next year They are working in Indy getting towers switched over now After they get Indy converted to 4G Fort Wayne is the next city in Indiana that will be converted. It is larger than South Bend. The new iPhone will have a simm card and be the different frequency (I assume more compatible with the world like ATT)" Sounds like the next Iphone 5 will be Verizon and sim card friendly.
