    This makes no sense. A phone can't run HSPA on a CDMA network. No more than it can be a GSM and run on Verizon's network. I think you've misunderstood something along the lines.

    Besides, my guess is the iPhone will be a 4G LTE phone when it drops on VZW. This makes sense considering AT&T is also switching to LTE when they go 4G.

I don't know if it's in the attempt to use 2g if needed where it drops on att or not, just that with Verizon using 1x only for voice should stop a huge increase in dropped calls.

    My best friend who's been a salesman/manager at an AT&T store for several years told me today that they stopped receiving shipments of iPhones from some odd reason...they're completely out. His store sells a ton of them, so this is a rarity.

    As much as I'd like to believe this is "just another VZW iPhone rumor", the iPad being on VZW already ,and more importantly, Android destroying Apple's market share leads me to believe this may actually be true.

    However, the "Tundabowt" should be dropping any day now. Its accessories are already on eBay...

    Dumb question, but if it's an iPhone, wouldn't the launch be handled in typical Apple fashion, where THEY host the event and Steve Jobs comes out and appears to his followers, and then spends the next 2 hours going over the most POINTLESS aspects of the device? I just can't see ANY Apple launching without going thru the typical Apple launch gala.

    I read an article a Consumer Report that said ATT could see 6 million of it's iPhone users move to Verizon. Even if you cut that estimate 1/2.....3 million is a lot iPhone user.

    Omg I hope that estimate is wrong. Lol I can just see 4.5 million people jumping ship in like 6 months and reports or 4 dripped called on one day become normal. I am seriously hoping it does NOT cone to verizon. Haha Im quitting Att for a good reason afterall.
    Cheers!
