Verizon iPhonebehold the power of my words of chastisement!!

  1. I hope you’re not a southpaw. If you are, then by merely holding the iPhone 4 like a normal person would, you will get reception problems regardless of cellphone carrier. Google for “iphone 4 death grip”. It’s a nice looking phone btw. Caveat emptor.

  2. I am not trying to be rude to you. I watch your blog via RSS and I’ve enjoyed most, not all, but most of your work here. You go after people’s credibility on this blog sometimes in an sharp fashion. I like that and it’s one of the reasons I tune in.

    But, on this post, your setting yourself up for a hit on your credibility.

    Simply commenting on this article the way you did hurts your credibility. Why? I listen to eight to 10 hours per week of tech and mobile tech related podcasting and there’s no telling how many articles I read on the topic of mobile tech.

    I can’t tell you how many rumors come up just like this one. Last year, Verizon’s CEO said on FoxNews that by Christmas 2009 Verizon would have the iPhone. Is there a more of a credible source is the CEO of Verizon on such a topic?

    Steve Jobs would be the only one with more credibility than the Verizon CEO and he has never chirped even a hint towards such a move. I’ve never heard the V word come out of his mouth.

    The report that you’re citing is probably the most credible, as far as circumstances and timing. But, I wouldn’t go making any “finally!!” statements until you see an official press release from Apple, Inc. and not even Verizon. I would even say it would be a shotgun press release.

    Quite frankly, at the rate of these rumors, you could just copy and paste this post once a month, at least.

    I hope your not upset at me, I’m really only trying to help.

  3. it’s certainly possible:

    but there’s also an advantage to promoting the story: apple needs to know that there are many of us that will simply walk away over the at&t issue.

  4. Unfortunately most of AT&Ts woes come from the popularity of the iPhone. I doubt if Verizon would be any better with all these users. Still, the more carriers the wider the load is distributed.

    BTW mine arrives tomorrow. :-)
