    I know it's ancient news, but I'm excited anyway. Just saw evidence of the Verizon iPhone with my own eyes, in my server logs (unless, of course, it's just a jailbroken iPhone). Check it out:

    I so can't wait to ditch AT&T's crappy service in favor of Verizon's slightly-less-crappy service. :)

    While I agree that eventually Verizon will have an iPhone, couldn't this just be proof that somebody is using Verizon as their ISP and utilizing wifi at their house?

    I agree, Verizon Wireless should show up as Cellco DBA Partnership.

    being in wireless industry, i've heard (from credible source) that the iPhone for VZW is being developed. the CDMA iPhone should be out shortly after the exclusive AT&T contract with apple is over...

    I give as much credibility to someone with ad links in their signature as I do to my 8 year old son trying to tell me about physics.

    I can't wait for VZW iPhone too, but not for the reasons you mentioned :D I really would like to see few million subscribers defect from ATT so that the rest of us can have more bandwidth :p

    if you read the article, it clearly says "Resolution: 320x480"

    goes to show how naive people are.

    There is no Verizon iPhone, there won't be a Verizon iPhone, get it?

    Wow, we made it almost two whole weeks without a new "iPhone to Verizon" thread!:D
    I don't really care one way or the other. If it happens and has the net effect of lightening the load on the AT&T side of things and/or making AT&T become more competitive in terms of what it offers, that would be fine with me.
    If it doesn't happen, we're all just right where we are now- in the US, at least.

    Won't ever be a Verizon iPhone? Very "interesting" theory.

    The WSJ said it's coming, and they're always on spot with the rumors.

    While I'm not saying there won't be a Verizon iPhone, what you have there isn't proof of anything, except that an iPhone is being used on a WiFi connection that is on either Verison DSL or FIOS.

    This is something I've seen all over my web server logs since 2007, when the original iPhone was out. It happens anytime a Verizon DSL/FIOS customer owns an iPhone and uses it on their WiFi.


    Sorry to burst your bubble.

    Well, I would like to add fuel to this fire. From day one I've been a Verizon naysayer. But over the weekend I was in an Apple Store where my father-in-law had just purchased an iMac. The Blue Shirt offered to carry it out for us, a long walk to the other end of the Mall. My father-in-law asked him when is Verizon going to get the iPhone? I'm thinking poor guy, I know he hasn't a clue. Well he says while rolling his eyes that he can't say anything that isn't on Apple.com. I gestured to him, well do you know anything? He said said under is breathe "January". I called B.S. and said, yea right dude, that is just the internet rumor mongers you've heard. He stopped and said, listen "one of my best friend is an engineer at Verizon in Muncie, Indiana and he told me they are currently training for it already with an expected release after the first of the year."

    So I know this sounds like another one of those stories of a friend of a friend. But this one to me was a bit more believable coming from a blue shirt with ties to a Verizon engineer. I don't think he was B.S.ing me. Take it at face value I suppose.

    Commonly used to describe Apple Store employees. They all wear the blue shirts. Although right now they are supporting holiday Red.

    It will be here eventually, if for no other reason than VZ and Apple need to make more money. The ATT market is probably close to saturation, and what better way to add to the bottom line than the VZ Iphone? Face it folks, it is, and always has been all about the $$. And, a whole lot of us will gladly contribute to that cause.

    I am aware of what Apple store employees wear. But thanks for the fashion advice.

    If you would have actually read the link you posted, you would see that the ISP is Verizon internet services, not Verizon wireless!

    Thread fail.

    In the past couple of weeks I've seriously considered switching to Verizon if they get the iPhone next year, as AT&T's service is so terrible here I have no 3G more often than I have it! And not even Edge works in those areas as they seem to be total deadzones for AT&T service. There are huge regions of my city where there hasn't been service since I've been with AT&T, and I've been using that worthless app they made to let them know about it and they haven't done one thing to address these problems. Sometimes I wonder where all that money they makes goes? I wonder how much data I actually get to use since most of the time I'm either on wifi or I have no data service at all.

    I just hope the Verizon iPhone will be able to do data and voice simultaneously.

    Well, VZ does have the best coverage no doubt. I am out in the desert of SoCal, and use the VZ Mifi for my computer and it works like a champ.
