    Wow interesting article. Knowing Verizon, I can see this happening, but it could be a good thing. Not saying it is, but well guess we will see come July 28th.

    I wouldn't put anything passed the prospect of making money. VZW has a lot of pull it will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    Nice article Stief. I don't think RIM would put all of their eggs in one basket but VZW does have the best network. I guess time will tell.

    As much as I hate to say this, but if they get the iphone on their network as well, they will take over

    Apple would be dumb not to bring their phone over to VZW when their contract expires with AT&T. An amazing multimedia device coupled with a fantastic carrier is a match made in heaven for consumers.

    It certainly would be a bad day for AT&T.

    AT&T would be trembling in there feet. They experience so many dropped calls and out of area signals, with verizon hopefully that will not be the case with such a large network.

    Verizon has the best network and their customer service is really good ... I have vzw for about 4 years and I can't remember getting 3 dropped calls
