Apple wont sign up with a CDMA provider, It doesn't make since for them to have to remake a device for 1 market.
If anything I would expect them to go to T-Mobile and AT&T at the same time.
The only time I could ever see Apple going to verizon is when LTE is there primary network.
Ummmmm.. you really don't know this one bit for certain.
Changing a radio inside and a few small programming items is not hardly any major feat for apple to do.. as it was already said, too, it was originally designed for CDMA..
RIM has the Blackberry which is designed for EVERY carrier on the globe now... (not to mention MANY models as well)... It has the Curve for ATT, Sprint, Verizon, and even Nextel now... it has a faster growth rate and more market share than the iPhone (which I love, for the record).. it's clearly not difficult to engineer a phone for another carrier's technology..
So, tell me this, if you know so well, what makes the iPhone any different, or more special, or more difficult of a phone to cross platform than any other ol' cell phone made... huh?
You guys really need to stop with the talking points, or at least stop listening to each other as sources around here becuase so many people are so wrong so much of the time.
One more fact, and this is fact... apple does NOT exactly run around telling everyone their business but USUALLY does about the time of launch.. apple has been WELL known to keep a tight lip on many of the upcoming products the offer.
