I heard that Verizon will be selling iPhones soon because AT&T has bad coverage. I am so excited because I am contracted with Verizion and don't want to switch.
Who is for Verizon and who is for AT&T and why.
It depends on where you travel as far as phone service goes. Verizon has the best coverage on a whole nationwide, but in certain areas, AT&T is better.
The commercials from AT&T and Verizon are not altogether true, depending on the phone you have. You know, the thing about you can't surf the net while talking on Verizon - you can on the Verizon Droid phones.
So you might want to see which carrier has better local coverage and go from there. Because even though you might want the carrier based on whether they carry a particular phone, once you are locked in a contract, the only thing that will matter is the service.
In my experience the choice between verizon and ATT really depends on what you do. If you travel a lot or spend time outside of major metropolitan areas regularly then you should stick with Verizon. If you spend most of your time in large cities then go with who ever gives you the best deal.
I have personally driven almost every mile of every major highway in the US in the past 4 years. I am usually the only one with Verizon in the van and the only one that 99% of the time has a signal. Sprint was the second best provider for coverage and ATT was terrible when we were out in the country side.
I hope that helps
I really wonder how soon the day will come when Apple contracts with Verizon, if ever. I work in the phone business and I can tell you that Apple will need to develop a new iPhone. The present iPhone uses GSM technology, which is what AT&T uses for their network. Verizon uses CDMA technology. Apple would have to create a CDMA version of the iPhone to work on the Verizon network. As a new phone with untested chips from a different manufacturer, who knows what problems it may have, if any.
According to the WSJ, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson is in talks with Apple to extend the iPhone's exclusivity with AT&T until 2011. I would guess this is a better deal for Apple than to play around with redesigning the iPhone for CDMA technology.
Nevertheless, it may be happening. Maynard J. Um, an analyst at UBS Investment Research, says that "We believe a CDMA-iPhone is also in the works."
I was under the impression the iphone worked on both since it can be used internationally

Who do you think is a strong player in the mobile world Apple or Nokia. The way Nokia has reacted to Apple iphone 3g release with Nokia N96 seems that the battle might become a bit stronger indeed!
