I actually heard from my neighbors brothers friends aunt that she bought a dog from a guy who had a brother who had a dog who played at a dog park with another dog who was owned by a guy who had a friend whos sisters boss had seen Steve Jobs walking through a mall once and they said it's going to Metro PCS next... Looks like PA is wrong again, neither Verizon or TMobile get the phone next.

Jesus H Christ! Let AT&T have their damn phone! Sprint has the fanfreakintastic Evo and Verizon has the aptly named Incredible. Competition is good. Steve jobs could take over the cellular industry if he released the Iphone on multiple carriers. Lets hope he doesn't do that. It would stifle competition and innovation imo.

i don't think it would take over the cellular industry because of Android phones and i know there are so many people that loves android over iphone (like me personally) so it will be better for everyone i guess?? and competition will eventually make apple, samsung, motorola, and htc stronger than ever because they will have to fight to come out with better phones & technology to keep up with each other

it wouldnt stifle anything trin. in order to "take over" hed have to convert everyone to iphones. Thats a lot of conversion. Many of us know android is the superior system by far and wont go to iphone. Thats why android has been catchin up quickly to iphone. The iphone has done the exact opposite. By being a "new fresh, supercool" high end phone, it actually took a nearly stagnant smartphone industry and turned it upsidedown. Because of them, google got into the game and created the android platform. And because of both the iphone and android, windows is now making its first major change in a decade and blackberry is finally stepping it up. Because of all the innovation apple went from "top of the market" to "playing catch up". No, competition is a wonderful thing.

Well...seein as Vodafone currently carries the iPhone 3GS who owns part of Verizon Wireless...an idea of the iPhone doesnt seem too far-fetched, but then again...who cares. iPhone is just another option in the smorgishborg (think i spelled it right) of high end smartphones. HTC and Motorola continue to release the rich, decadent treats of android goodness which keeps my smartphone jones peaked. F the iPhone, I personally wish the EVO would come to Verizon but all in all competition is truly good...
