    Thanks for the info. It stands to reason that if VZW gets the iPhone it would be in june June when the new model will come out.

    They might be ones that highly suggest a task killer and even install it for you as well. Ya just never know anymore.
    I for one will be very happy when it does finally arrive so the rumors will cease and we can get real apples to apples comparison instead of am vs fm rendition of which rock band is best.

    Yeah this is what i believe. Some stores do take it upon themselves to be ready if something like that happened. Why? Because the store may sell more units that way. In some cases it's better to be safe then sorry. Not saying this is the case here. I've heard from a few people that it would happen and from others that it won't (people that have knowledge of it, not theory). As with anything else until it is 100% confirmed by verzion it's merely a rumor. I have no hate towards the iphone at all, it's just another phone. Some people like it over android phones, and that is also 100% ok, not everyone likes the same thing, if they did this would be one boring world.

    Sgt can you private message me the stores phone number along with city and address? Ill call them to confirm they are taking pre-orders. This could be big news.

    I'm definetly with you on this hook......i'm generally a skeptic myself.
    I dont believe a damn thing until drop date. Either scenario could be possible. This store I went to was an actual vzw store. Not one of those crappy independent mall kiosk's......hahah. I confirmed this also on the verizonwireless.com store locator. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see what's the deal.

    Wait a second, Quicksiver. We have to let the current rumor, Jan./Feb. pass before we start a new rumor.;)

    I am actually not surprised. Look at what happen at the ces...you had companies rushing to get their phones out there now and they are probably pushing to make sure they are released by the time iphone is released. I really think it is gonna happen.... why else would att who normally caters to apple now start putting out good android devices.

    They would do that because they see that android devices sell, before the droid 1, android had a very iffy name to it at best. I'm sure that AT&T wants to get in on that action now. Android has definitely made a name for itself and it's shown that it isn't going to just go away. Android has a very big market share, and if they continued to only offer iphone and maybe 1 or 2 lower end androids then they could be loosing out on alot of money.
