    11:17AM "On February 3rd our existing customers will have an opportunity to pre-order... on February 10th, everyone will be able to order online, in stores, or in Apple stores."

    I have a customer on the phone RIGHT NOW.
    You've got to be kidding me.

    11:23AM Q: Is the CDMA iPhone exclusive to Verizon?

    Tim: It's a multi-year, non exclusive deal.

    Well I was wrong. It's coming in February. The only concerns I have is the fact that it is 3G and not LTE and they didn't comment on whether or not it would be on the same 1 year refresh cycle. I am wondering when June comes along and they announce the iPhone 5 for AT&T if the same will happen for VZW? For that matter will those who bought the iPhone 4 on VZW be screwed out of it due to VZW's new 2 year only upgrade plan? Food for thought. In any case my Bionic awaits. dancedroid

    Obviously you were wrong. And you'll be wrong about the runaway train that is android too. But you do bring up interesting points. Knowing VZW yes they'll screw you, I'd be surprised if they allowed a seamless upgrade 4 months after you get the iphone4

    Whats up with the dumb questions from the people at the event?

    "What changes, if any, have been made to the antenna?"
    "What happens if you want to use data and voice?'

    I mean...these questions seem obvious...

    even if i was going to get the iphone i would wait for 4g. i could have gotten a new phone recently from verizon, resign my contract early, but i would rather wait for the 4g phones

    yeah i think its certain a 4g iphone is coming, just wonder if it'll be released at the same time as the AT&T version...those are the questions that should have been asked by these reporters, not "what change is made to the antenna?"

    iphone antennas had issues on AT&T's network of dropping calls frequently.
    I think the question of using data and voice was more geared to people who don't realize that its not the phone that can call and data at same time its the network. Kind of a burn on iPhones since thats what they used to market.

    Idk,
    If it was 4G, it would allow for voice + data simultaneously wouldn't it?

    from what I understand....i think so....however 4g lte is just a faster data signal. And talk will still be CDMA. so it will be CDMA/4g instead of CDMA/3g.

    So maybe not

    I was going to ask this in another thread but glad you answered here. Too many threads to follow :) The other question I have is this. Will the iPhone 5 come to VZW the same time as AT&T? Knowing that VZW has changed their upgrade plans to 2 years fixed with no early upgrade possibility makes me wonder. That and IF they do have a 1 year churn for the iPhone, say Feb 2012 the iPhone 5 comes out for VZW, will they allow an upgrade? If so what does that do to existing smartphone customers, Android, Blackberry or otherwise who are stuck in the 2 year cycle?
