    Aren't you meant to be writing news, not hearsay?

    In my book "solid rumor" and "tentatively factual" are the same column.

    If Verizon doesn't have the Iphone by 2011 it will be because they have decided Iphone 4 with its problems is not worth the venture!

    The deathgrip problem is not completely related to the SIM card, but the design of the antennas' contact with the skin and interfering with each other

    Verizon basically used to be owned by ATT. Until the government broke Ma' Bell up.

    Bell/ATT Corp got split up into 7 companies. The Bell Babies.

    Ameritech — (acquired by SBC in 1999)
    Bell Atlantic — (acquired GTE in 2000 and changed its name to Verizon)
    BellSouth — (acquired by AT&T Inc. in 2006)
    NYNEX — (acquired by Bell Atlantic in 1996)
    Pacific Telesis — (acquired by SBC in 1997)
    Southwestern Bell — (changed its name to SBC in 1995; acquired AT&T Corp. in 2005 and changed its name to AT&T Inc.)
    U S West — (acquired by Qwest in 2000)
    But even looking at this it slowly looks like the "babies" having been moving back together so who knows. ATT and Verizon may be one again. Because the 7 now are only 3; QWest, Verizon, and ATT.

    I'm thinking the announcement will be at CES, but the shipping date will be a lot later than that. The device will have to be a lot different, and the testing, etc. won't be trivial. I doubt they ran the design work completely in parallel with the AT&T version.

    While I respect Bloomburg, lots of press on this topic has turned out to be wrong...

    I'm sure your email was full of information that Mr jobs didn't already know.
    When the exclusive contract with AT&T expires Verizon may get it. Hopefully by then they will have LTE rather than some weird 'standard' that no one else uses. But no doubt it will be on a different frequency....

    Well all I can say is that the state I live in Verzion is spending about $70 million dollars and hiring about 2000 or more new employees, there on a push for something!

    On the 2000 new employees it would be nice if they would hire back the Alltel they let go when they took over, if they want to come back!

    If he lets you see it do not hold in your left hand to read as the print will get smaller!

    Never know.

    The President has a group of people answer his mail but he tells them to pick out, I think, 10 a day for him to read personally and he answers those 10 back.

    Sure Steve may do this for some but he may also go through them himself at some point.
