someone is going to hate Verizon now

We all know that, Don from beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy does not like AT&T. Don is not going to like Verizon for sure. This is why:

iPhone on AT&T and Verizon

Congratulations on getting the iPhone available on second network in the United States of America.

For the record, iPhone is not that expensive.

more February 2011 blogs. (or 2011 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
I personally say it's about time that AT&T's exclusivity of the iPhoe ended, though for that matter I'd also say it's time for carrier exclusivity to be phased out altogether, iPhone and others.
I didn't like Verizon due to their outrageous prices (Verizon expects you to buy in packages of voice/text/data/multi-lines/etc, rather than just simple service for yourself as I have); having the iPhone didn't change my like or dislike for them as you tried to make it sound. I could really care less whether or not they carry the iPhone.

I think all phone apparatus should be unencumbered and be able to be used on any carrier you may choose. The CD player in all its forms can play any properly formatted disc around. It's manufacturer did not make it to fit only one type of CD. I am tired of the various phone makers and their deals with certain carriers on prices and availability. Bring on open source!! When I am in Asia, with the exception of Japan which still uses CDMA ( would you believe? ), I am able to pop in a local cheap SIM and I'm on the air!

It appears that almost everything related to Apple get added to your hated/dislike list automatically.

Rev. Dr.,
Most mobile phone are, except you need to choose the "outright and unlocked" one, not the heavily subsidised ones.

Why then Antony, is an iPhone in the US $299 and in AUS, upwards of $1,000, given our dollar parity? Outright and unlocked seem to be a rarity with the big players and their networks! IMHO, techno-dullard that I am.

You forgot, AGAIN, that I really just don't care about brand names, Apple or otherwise.

At&T has an interesting deal going on for the iPhone 3GS. With a new contract you can now get it for 49$. I wonder if Verizon will follow when Apple releases a new iPhone. Or is this simply a tactic of At&T to get back some of the lost customers.
