I'll keep this under Rumors for now. Even though the WSJ is not usually a rumor source, they have not always been accurate.

Without a WSJ subscription you can see these articles here and here.

Same rumor, different year. For the pass couple of years "reliable" high profile sources have predicted this and then the year goes by with nothing. Will the iPhone come to Verizon? Probably! However, WSJ and the rest probably don't don't any more about WHEN than you or I. </skeptic>

I think we can all agree that Verizon will have the iPhone... some day. I decided not to wait 'till dooms-day, so I went out and got myself a DROID.

Not quite Hell freezing over, it was more a question of when, not if.

In order to grow the US iPhone market Apple would HAVE TO open it up to other carriers. We pretty much knew that from day one. What I got tired of was every year some news source with "evidence" touting that it was going to happen on _______ date, being wrong and never admitting it.

Here, let me try. There will be a new iPhone this year. Smile

So are you going to go "Null and Void with the Droid?" and get an iPhone now? Or are you locked in for 2 years on the Android?

I am watching this very closely. I am in need of a new phone and I would like to get a smart phone. And while it is very tempting to get a refurbed iphone via ATT I am waiting to see what Verizon offers for the new iphone. I just wish they would give the consumer some clues as to the monthly rates are. Guess it is a good time to get a new phone Smile

Rates are out. Phone plans are the same as any other phone. For a limited time, the only data plan is a $30/unlimited (like AT&T used to have). However, Verizon has already said they will go to tiered pricing later and that this is a limited time offer. Tethering as a hotspot is $20 extra, like AT&T, but you get 2GB of tethering data, and can connect up to 5 devices, not just 1. ATT also gives you no tethering data, and you can't even get tethering if you are on an unlimited data plan (you have to give it up).
