AT&T's exclusivity agreement with Apple expires in 2012.

Actually, Verizon WILL be getting the iPhone.
Apple broke out of the agreement with AT&T.
And that contract, was actually supposed to be valid until 2013.

Why would Apple announce an end to an exclusivity which they never acknowledged existed in the first place?

Actually, they did acknowledge it. And I'm sure Apple found a loop hole. Like maybe calling it the vPhone or something lame like that, maybe changing enough so that its a second patent and they're free of any contract since it's no longer the "iPhone".

Don't want to sound clueless but not that long ago found out about The ZTE Peel, Thats cool that you can use it that way.

ZTE Peel 3G Case For Transforming Your iPod Touch Into a Sprint Phone?

Sprint ZTE Peel cradles iPods with 3G goodness

ZTE Peel 3G Case For Transforming Your iPod Touch Into a Sprint Phone?

Now thats awesome!!!!!

I think Verizon and other Wireless Companies will start doing the same.

It make it easier to move from one to another company, it might even be a start of an end of what we think of cellphones. If you can get an unbranded device and pop it in a case from AT&T Or Sprint Or Verizon Maybe you and easily do the same all over the world?

The Peel is advertised as a mobile web-only device.
It doesn't make the iPod a phone, just provides 3G data coverage.

I can only assume mr not for profit MVNO is talking about using VoIP with the iTouch with the 3g data peel thingy.

holy hell has no one realized in this industry it is no longer a matter of if its only a matter of when so i can feel very confident in saying that everyone will have the iphone at some point. that means sprint verizon uscellular tmobile even cricket for christ sake. just like everyone will have nationwide LTE and video chat and a phone that opens your garage door too..... ok maybe not the last thing but is that too much to ask for its all about frequencies anyway

that use "Words with Friends" on their iPhone when they leave a 4G area?

Talk about missing calls...

being witty?

CDMA phones prefer voice traffic over data traffic, so it you're playing words with friends and a call comes in, the incoming call pops up and asks you to accept or ignore it. you will NEVER miss a call with verizon because of a data session. It doesn't happen.

But why let facts get in the way of a good rumor. Besides with a carefully set up time shift we may see that verizon already has been selling the iphones for the past 2 months in a small town in Montana

I already ate pie over this comment. I was wrong. I admitted it once, and now I am admitting it again: I WAS WRONG. WRONG, WRONG. I WAS WRONG. Verizon has the iPhone now, and I am glad for those who wanted this to happen.

Please, stop replying to my original post just to tell me to eat crow. I already ate crow with ketchup, mustard, and just a dollop of mayo because I am watching my fat intake.

For the record, I have already eaten crow over this original post. I even had a side of fries with it. Are we good? I hope so. Thank you.
