    I was thinking you had to be pretty bitter to post that - until I read the OP. Good summation! dancedroid

    Let me know when VZW does get the iPhone, anything less is unimportant dribble.

    Yeah, I glanced it fast and missed that part. Sorry. Does make sense though to be honest.

    not really, unless somebody has actual copies of the contracts between ATT and Apple. We have no idea what is going on behind closed doors ;)

    It needs to be in writing to make sense? Umm, ok.

    did you read the article you linked? the author says in the first sentence to take this with a grain of salt. if full of specualtion, guesses, and hypothesis. there is no evidence behind what is being said.

    seems to me like they had an empty page on their blog and needed to fill it with something :D

    It is full of speculation yes but there is a reason. Initial reports back in 2007 when the exclusivity deal was signed is that is was signed for 5 years. That was reported by a number of large news agencies as well. Now it's saying that they re-upped until the end of this year which would mean that there was no five year deal. Who knows? Point is no one really knows what the contract states or for how long it lasts.

    If you read my 2nd message, I admitted as much but simply stated the reasoning (guesses to why it might be true) made sense. That's all.

    What? The last rumor that iPhone was coming in May isn't true? I'm shocked! Just like I was the last 5 rumors I heard about iPhone coming to Verizon. :rolleyes:

    I lol every time I see the rumor and lol every time I see the denial response. But you wait, it will get quiet again fro a couple of months then the rumors will start up again.

    This is never going to end.

    Don't worry about it. Who knows, it could be true! We have seen strangers things happen.
