Actually, a tmo employee said that they will pretty soon, likely sometime this year. I'd love it if they didn't though.

There's never anything new, and when there is, it's not new to Android phones. Apple fans just have to live with that.

Oh it has LTE! Well I guess they'll sell it. Wait, they'll sell anything Apple.

Actually Verizon has made a pretty massive push with it's Droid series of phones having faster speeds, and "all day battery life" compared to iPhones. There are number of commercials for Droid series for Verizon, and very little for the iPhone on Verizon (ie Verizon logo at the end of an Apple ad). So it'll be interesting to see if Verizon really push the new iPhone.

You're narrow since you are able to have a feeling as strong as hate towards a device. IT'S JUST A PHONE.

Apple knows if they give T-Mobile the new iPhone this year, they have a greater chance of taking some of T-Mobile android user base away. If they don't spread the iPhone to other carriers then they stand a chance of losing out on users who are looking forward to buy the iPhone without changing carriers. Apple has grown alot more last year thanks to Verizon and Sprint selling the iPhone, and I know they are tired of losing out to Android. Just my honest opinion on the matter.

HAHA.. "big smartphone" does not equal iphone. maybe all those leaked shots of the 5+ inch droids are not "big smartphones".

Funny Verizon has never publicly stated Razr has out sold the iPhone; most report come from analyst. When are they going to release the official figures? He seem happy to releasing the iPhone.
