i-Phone on Verizon


Jul 7, 2007, 4:38 PM
In these posts, I've often seen the "Verizon was offerd the i-Phone first" line to "prove" the superiority of Verizon. Now we are saying it was offered to Verizon twice!! Well let me add to that, Steve Jobs himself came crawling on his knees to the CEO of Verizon and offered him 50% of the APPLE Corp. if he would only allow APPLE to become a part of "THE GREATEST CELL PHONE NETWORK IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND" (Steve Jobs words, not mine). Obviously, the head of Verizon kicked Jobs in the face and said "we have chocolates, why would we want you!", and sent Steve Jobs off to the hinterlands of ATT, where the phone will obviously not sell at all. I keep walking through the mall, and the ATT reps are handing them out for free w/ the purchase of a...

Dude, do you not even know how many iPhone's have been sold!? Do your research. At one point most all locations locations were sold out nationwide. Estimates are around 500,000 to even over 700,000 units moved since the 29th of June. Good try though to make a compelling argument that made sense.

Dude, do you not note the sarcasm in the post? OK, let me spell it out. I was making fun of the people who post on here, cutting down everybody else's decision to use whatever network we choose. My network is Sprint, and while I am happy with what I get, I try not to worship at the idol of my carrier. I am no better, nor do I believe any worse a person than anyone else, simply because I chose Sprint. Many people on here believe that they are better because they chose VZW or ATT or whatever carrier. My post was my own personal little rebellion against those people. And I was just kidding about the ATT reps giving the i-Phones away.

You would have to be, because they can't. There is no subsidy to cover the cost.

Rolling Eyes wow, someone needs to lay off the hoho's and cough syrup. First off, verizons network is the same size as cingulars, + or - a few towers in varying locations. Secondly, all phones run on the same kind of towers, the only things thats different is the coding, and each code offers its own unique advantages. So bottom line, your a retard. Besides the fact that if your going to take steve jobs opinion on cellular companies you might as well ask a blacksmith how to program a computer. Steve jobs is an expert in computer equipment, but hardly a novice in the cellular market so needless to say hardly qualified to use for showing cellular superiority.

I am really confused now! Did you think my post was serious? I've explained twice now in these responses how this was meant in a sarcastic vein, so I can only assume you are being sarcastic back, but I don't see it. I guess you're sense of humor is over my head, so congratulations, you win.
