The debate rages on whether Verizon customers will ever see the iPhone on their network. But if the device ever does make it onto their carrier what sacrifices will have to be made?
MG Siegler of Techcrunch is asking this question after thinking back to a similar situation way back in 2005. Back then the Motorola RAZR was the must have phone, but if you were a Verizon customer you couldn’t have one.
It took about a year later before the V3c version made it on too Verizon, but this version wasn’t like those of others. The interface was some horrid red UI from Verizon themselves, and you couldn’t share files via Bluetooth as it had been disabled by Verizon. Added to that was the fact the device was preloaded with the carriers V CAST didn’t help either.
With this in mind to get their iPhone onto Verizon, Apple will surely have to make some sacrifices to make it happen. Will we see any movement from either side to get the device on the biggest carrier in the US? Apple and Verizon must realize it makes business sense to have the iPhone on the Verizon network.
