In any event, I sure as heck wouldn't want a CDMA nor a Verizon iPhone. Hope it's not a nightmare for Apple. Wonder how a CDMA iPhone will be able to perform internationally? New hybrid design with sleeping GSM on board?
Smells like trouble to me, but then we are still only in the perpetual rumor zone on this subject. I trust Apple to have an effective plan that will make the seemingly impossible work well. I just doubt Verizon's ability to perform their Role the Apple Way as AT&T has done so well these past 3 years.
For me, Verizon's willingness to actively try to end Net Neutrality with Google puts them on my s##t list of companies I would never do business with and which should be boycotted by all sentient beings. AT&T is a superior service provider that deserves our loyalty as the charter US iPhone carrier who followed Steve after Verizon told him to shove it. Why should we forgive them for that? I say NEVER FORGIVE VERIZON
for thumbing their noses at Steve 4 years ago.
They do not believe in, nor will ever be, the Apple Way.
The iPhone is locked for AT&T, so here's how it performs internationally on GSM: poorly. You are still going to have to pay an arm and a leg for international calls. Most people don't buy a phone with the intention of going overseas. And if you're in business, you have a blackberry. You're better off just finding a wifi hotspot and using VOIP for 2 cents/minute. Also MANY CDMA PHONES HAVE A SIM SLOT NOT A BIG DEAL!
AT&T is a superior service provider that deserves our loyalty?? Are you shitting me? On what grounds does refusing to carry a cell phone make you evil? Thumbing your nose at the almighty Steve is an unforgivable act? This just in, maybe Verizon didn't think the iPhone would be that successful and maybe they didn't want to have a clogged up data network or maybe they didn't want to pay Apple $10/month/phone like AT&T did for the beginning of their deal!
Maybe Verizon didn't give a fark what Apple wanted because they are the market leader, and Apple IS NOT.
What the hell is the Apple Way, and why do you capitalize it?
UUUGUGHHH sorry to flame you but screw it it's the internet
