Agreed. Verizon doesn't need the iphone AND did anyone else see the DROID X in the new verizon commercial today? It doesn't exactly say anything about the DROID X but it shows it-clearly! They're just building the hype for this phone which is going to be better than the iphone anyways.

this one actually made the tv news lines. god, i get so sick of these rumors. i totally agree, until there is a press release from Jobs, or an iphone "left in a bar" that runs on VZW, can we just stop posting this crap?

Read the account bio. It's a parady account.

I am sick of these rumors, but to be honest, I would be thrilled if this happened. I would get it hands down in February, when I can get my upgrade. I hope this happens, but I always remember that this rumor has been going on for a while now, and it has been false every time. Hopefully this time will be different. And LTE? That would be sick.

that would be amazing, iphone 4g...actually LITE....that would make verizon have like 110 million users..complete beast

WHY? why would anyone want this phone anymore, it has a major floor in it that the company is not even responding to except to tell you to hold the phone differently, its extremely fragile. its day has come and gone, verizon would most likely make this phone act better since at&t sucks, and the iphone in the past is a nice phone but too many good phones out there.

I heard this one before... I hope Verizon and other carriers get it but we'll see :

I'm so BORED with these rumors already. If it comes to Verizon fine. Verizon doesn't need the iPhone anyway. Besides, how will poor AT&T survive without it's flagship phone?

Boring...........Someone wake me up so I can play with my EVO:)

Honestly I heard so many articles about this but if its true i will upgrade from my droid to the iphone. If true a GREAT BUSINESS DECISION by verizon and CEO Lowell McAdam> Imagine LTE 4G IPhone WOW. It Will Destroy AT&T ( Sorry AT&T Customers)

iPhone 4 on VZW!!! Now that is really "RULING THE AIR" you know all Android fans would jump on the iPhone if it came to Verizon! Droix X sucks BTW ...So does the EVO 4G ... never seen a phone so sluggish!

I bet you were molested by your older brother AND your priest when you were younger, were you not, lxmndza?

If this does happen - and it will not until 2012 (mark my words), then, we shall all see how many true ANDROID OS fans exist....I already have a droid and have no desire for an iphone....good phone, I am sure.....

I'm tired of Bloomberg, I'm tired of Fox, and all these other rumors of the iPhone coming to Verizon. Didn't you learn at WWDC 2010? Ain't spokesmen for Verizon said that they don't have an interest in the iPhone in the near future. It ain't coming! Leave it alone, let it die. Just switch to at&t for Christ sakes and shut up about it!

I am one who is tired of these rumors, but seriously some of us can't switch to at&t because it's not even offered in our area or around our area!

my sister's boyfriend's cousin's brother's roommate's mom's secret lover's wife's babysitter's dead goldfish just confirmed the iPhone is coming to Verizon...OMG....PhoneArena better rush to publish this cuz it has to be NEWS smh....whoeva is approving these rumors needs to take a long lunch break evaluate their career choice then kindly play in traffic

sick of this...dont blame phonearena...all of these wall street financial analysts are making these predictions because they want to make money on it. There is going to be an LTE Storm 3...BB knows it cant go toe to toe against the iPhone... "it has the apps, the wi-fis..."
30. PHONE_GEEK (Posts: 52; Member since: 01 Feb 2010)
how many times did they say that and how many times was the true?

Yes many articles have been written regarding the Iphone coming to Verizon. Analyze some of the evidence that has been coming from AT&T. First, AT&T changed a lot of people's upgrade of up to 6 months. Ask yourself why? Second, AT&T changed the early termination fee from $175 to $325 for smartphones. As this year draws to close, more evidence could be shown of a Verizon Iphone coming thereby causing potential AT&T Iphone customers to move towards Verizon. The two facts mentioned above are for the mean time ways to attract and retain customers. There is another aspect to address saying that when and if an Iphone comes to Verizon it will LTE based. Apple has a tendency to introduce products not with highest technology to make customers buy the new product the following year. If it is released it will CDMA then the following year LTE, just to make more of a profit. Just to prove my point how long did it take for the Iphone to have built flash for the camera or HD screen. FYI not an Iphone fan, just stating facts

Heard it from the horse's mouth, I work for Verizon and my Regional Manager confirmed that Verizon will be getting the iPhone in January.
35. YouLostTheGame (Posts: 441; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
January just seems such a suspect time for Apple to release a major product like this. I dunno, color me jaded from all the previous VZW iPhone rumors. Wouldn't mind it happening though. And then I have to ask myself, do I want to upgrade to a Droid X, or wait it out, and see if any of these rumors come to fruition.

Well if you don't, why waste your time posting a comment here?

Dude came on here to do a headcount of fanboys like yourself, that's why.
36. CRICKETownz (Posts: 980; Member since: 24 Oct 2009)
Phonearena just posts this info every so often...just to keep us comin back. Guess it works...every time.
38. corporateJP (Posts: 2341; Member since: 28 Nov 2009)
Who in their right mind would go from an EVO 4G or a Moto Droid to a lousy Apple product? That would be like going from a Harley to a Yamaha. Sure, the latter might be sleeker, but inside it has no balls.
41. CRICKETownz (Posts: 980; Member since: 24 Oct 2009)
Well said...i can just imagine the Applets preparin their hate posts to that statement. Which i'm convinced little Steven Jobs has several diff. phonearena accounts pretendin to be a pro-Apple user that we all hate.

I'm not saying it will happen or not, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did. $$$$$$$$$$ usually trumps everything.And $$$$$$$$$$ is always better than $$$$ And for those who say that Verizon doesn't need the iPphone or the iPhone doesn't need Verizon, just remember$$$$$$$$$$ is always better than $$$$ And for those who say Verizon is married and committed to Android so there's no way they'd want to have an affair with Apple. $$$$$ is a big break-up of marriages. And where is Google going to run to? Into the arms of AT&T? T-Mobile? I don't think so. It's hard to leave your sugar daddy.
