The iPhone to Verizon rumor has been around since 2005 or so and hasn't happened yet. ATT has a good thing going with the exclusivity deal so I would be really surprised if it wasn't extended.

I know a lot of CDMA users would be happy to see the iPhone on Verizon. Don't think it will be such a great device until LTE is built out however.

I heard they were going to "cripple GPS and WiFi".

I thought the exclusivity agreement ends this year.

It would be in Apple's best interests to offer the iphone on as many carriers that want it.

It does, but ATT and Apple are supposedly in negotiations to extend through 2011. Maybe the Verizon rumor is just to get ATT off the dime and get it done?

The iPhone won't be coming to Verizon. AT&T is trying to push the contract till 2011, so it won't be available next year anyway.

If it does come, the money says it won't be CDMA, but instead the up coming LTE. LTE probably won't be widely available until then anyway, despite what Verizon says. Since both ATT and Verizon are both moving toward LTE, its probably a safe bet the device will be available for both carriers at some point.

I suspect they'll have all (most) of the 3.0 version of the software issues worked out by then as well... as I'm sure they'll surface soon after it's released to the masses. Maybe we'll see the introduction of a VZW iPhone with the next 3.x release? Probably be the best working IP yet... just sayin'

Some articles are saying that Verizon and Apple are negotiating other devices such as the iPhone "light" and their speculated tablet device.
