Chew on this one for a minute.
Mobiledia posted this a couple of weeks ago..
Verizon Wireless addressed the notion of the iPhone ever coming to its network, saying Apple is willing to work with the carrier under its fourth-generation, or 4G, network, which follows the same technology standard as AT&T's 4G plans..
Verizon's Chief Executive Ivan Seidenberg admitted Apple never seriously considered making a CDMA version of its popular iPhone because it didn't have as wide a distribution opportunity.
Apple, the maker of the popular smartphone, is conducting high-level discussions with the carrier to sell a version of the iPhone that would work on Verizon's network.
The Basking Ridge, N.J.-based carrier plans to test its soon-to-be-built 4G network this year and will roll it out commercially in at least 25 to 30 markets in 2010.

I am not interested in the iphone. Why would I want a phone that has less features on it than the one I have? I cant even send an MMS message to my friends that have them.
