Apple iPhone is coming to Verizon on Tuesday, according to WSJ

Apple iPhone is coming to Verizon on Tuesday, according to WSJ
As it seems, the news about Verizon's upcoming mystery event, which is to be held on Tuesday, is really causing a stir in the land of wireless. After it became clear that Big Red is handling invites for its event, none other but the Wall Street Journal has come out with an opinion on the matter. Basing itself on a word from a person that's said to be familiar with the case, the WSJ seem to be fairly certain that Verizon will indeed announce that the Apple iPhone is coming to its network.

What's even more interesting, AllThingsD's sources report that Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going to join Verizon President Lowell McAdam on stage. Apparently, these guys are pretty confident that a CDMA iPhone is just a few days away.

According to the source, the iPhone which Verizon is going to carry, will be very similar to the iPhone 4, but of course with the notable difference of being designed for CDMA tech. No word about possible LTE support has been uttered.

Seems like one busy January, eh folks?

i think you're just afraid that the rumor may be true and you made the dumb mistake of switching to At&t for the iP4 only to find out that it was coming to the more robust network that you were previously on...haha jokes on you (possibly lol)

I hope steve jobs comes on stage to say verizon isnt getting the iphone. Either way they need to take a dump or get off the pot, Im tired of people asking me as a verizon employee when the iphone will be released. All I see when they come around are brainwashed apple whores, I seriously lose respect for people who put so much faith in 1 brand.

Additionally, if Verizon does get the iphone, and since AT&T is getting a formidable android phone, I'm curious to see if the visade is blown off this pile of shit when finally compared side by side in the retail channel. I bet it'll hurt the iphone more than help it.

What's funny is if you look at the comments in the WSJ post, a lot of folks are saying the same thing, "Rumors here..." "Rumors there..." "For years..." yada yada... I guess we'll all find out on 1/11/11 11am...or something. What a black eye for WSJ if it's something else though...geeez...

What's crazy is Verizon also announced that they are changing there return policy to 14 days instead of 30 days. Yeah they are getting the iphone 4 and Apple definitely has there hands in that. I Love Apple but I think Verizon personally are making some huge mistakes lately.

lol!!!! what are you talking about... first you say before that verizon has a 5gb cap on its smartphones witch is just not true.... and now your on the return policy... the 5gb cap only refers to mobile hotspots and 3g usb aircards (not 4g aircards or mifi). the return policy is 30 days and will remain to be 30 days hahaha... either your a moron with incorrect information or your a moron that is barking lies... either or... life is not in your favor

BTW tragichero, we can stop the bickering now, it's quite childish. People are here to get phone info, not here people argue like idiots. So if you have a reply for a comment of mine, keep it respectable.

well dude... sure we are bickering but im just trying to give out the correct information. so when you say people want phone info..... here is the correct information that you are denying 1. all verizon phones have an unlimited data option. (no 5gb cap) 2. there is and always will be a 30 day return policy. all i want you to do trenitty is keep it real...

Actually the return policy is going to be 14 days starting on the 16th. Along with no more NE2 credits or annual upgrades being added after the 16th. Verizon smart phones have unlimited data usage on the phone. I sell verizon and i just did the training on policy changes for Q1 2011 today.

You are right in 2 things but the policy is changing to 14 days and there are more changes regarding equipment discounts soon to be announced.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh Ohhhhhhhhh Ohhhhhhhhh damn dog, you wanna stop running that lie that you work for Verizon or are you the porter who cleans Verizon after the real Verizon employee's leave. Now who's really the moron and now you call them smartphones now after I corrected you from calling them pda's before. Oh yeah, stop making fake usernames trying to correct a simple spelling error, I know that's you.

Actually, we got an internal communication with Verizon stating that the return policy changes on the 16th. You will have 14 days to return or exchange the phone. After that you are locked into the device. Also, they did discontinue the New Every 2 and Annual upgrades.

as far as the 30 day return policy.....it IS changing to 14 days. this is for sure I read the memo this morning.

the 14 day return policy is for Apple products only kiddo...right now, iPad is the only device that abides by that 14 day return policy, so this "announcement" that you speak of...maybe you're reading a little too much WSJ and not researching what the actual company's policy is.

7. vzw.rep unregistered

He is correct about the return policy changing 14 days is the new policy starting the 16th

You're the moron sir. Starting January 16th you have 14 days to make up your mind. Also this should have nothing to do with an iphone launch (if their is one) since you have a 30 day return policy on the iphone with AT&T.

Posts: 67; Member since: Oct 29, 2010

good, theres no reason to take 30 days to decide whether you like a phone or not anyway... just makes it easier on us sales people now that we wont have to take back phones that are all scratched up and look like hell after some idiot decided he didnt like it on the 29th day.

more then likely this is lte device training had a discussion with my dm the other day. Looking forward to the new lines that come in from at&t on this one though otherwise droids are still a equal or better device depending on the customer

14. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

Who cares it's not even a 4G phone not even worth my time I'm on AT&T and never got the Iphone. GOOD RIDDANCE of the Iphone now I can upgrade to my 4G phone.

15. jrparnell1977 unregistered

I am due for an upgrade in June. Do you think they will let everyone upgrade early like they did with the Droid 2, or do you think everyone will have to wait until their upgrade date? I am sick of my storm2, it sucks.

17. lojhdksksb djjd b unregistered

The policy has been changed. 14 days return or exchange. Trust it

18. vzw.rep.2 unregistered
