Edit: Clarifying first answer: First answer should be the normal time AT&T in the past has gotten a new version (around June). I'm curious what everyone thinks. Will Apple put Verizon on the same schedule as their normal schedule for iPhone or do you think they will update Verizon's iPhone a year from now? I don't know but I'm leaning that Verizon will have this model for a year and not get the iphone "5" right when it comes out. Mainly cause it means Apple can get a resurgence of interest in a not so new model middle of the year from people on the other carrier who want the new model so boost their numbers mid cycle. Plus it means they can get a year's worth of sales out of the "new" model they did for Verizon. I allowed for the third option just cause it is a slight possibility, but honestly I'd be very surprised if they release the iphone 5 for both a year from now. They have to stay current with the other phones and it would mean they would be selling a pretty outdated phone for a while before refreshing.
