Vermonters soon able to buy Apple’s iPhone 3G

In a few months, Vermonters will be able to buy Apple’s revolutionary iPhone 3G. Up until now, Vermont has been the only state in the country without direct access to the iPhone, WCAX News (Burlington, VT) reports.

“Federal regulators have approved a rural cell phone merger, which means the long-awaited Apple iPhone is finally coming to the Green Mountains,” WCAX News reports.

“Verizon is merging with Unicel, but the state worried that would leave Vermonters without a choice of cell phone service. So Vermont is spinning off overlapping service areas to AT&T,” WCAX reports.

  1. Tada!
    Unicel, soon to be AT&T;, is a 30 second walk from my house. And Small Dog (Authorized Apple Reseller) is a 5 minute walk from here.
    I’ll be keeping up to date with MDN on my new iPhone skiing at Stowe this winter and sailing Lake Champlain next summer!

  2. What happens when it becomes the United Socialist Republic of Vermont? Do only the politburo elite get those ‘bourgeois toys made by capitalist pigdogs’ then, hmm?

  3. A nice cover story, but we all know Vermonters’ access to iPhones (as well as Pillsbury products) is being blocked by Big Syrup.

    You hear me Vermont Sugar Makers?!?! Your silent stranglehold won’t last forever. Greenpeas knows who you are!!

  4. For the love of all things holy,

    “could care less” – means that you could care less than you do now, which means that you do care.

    “couldn’t care less” – means that you could NOT care less than you do now, which actually means that you don’t care at all.

    Get it right or don’t say it at all.

    I know, this is stupid but it drives me freakin’ nuts when people screw this up.

  5. “Up until now, Vermont has been the only state in the country without direct access to the iPhone.”

    Where are these people getting their “facts” from? As has been said, there’s no iPhone availability in South Dakota, North Dakota, and several other states… a huge chunk of the US population, actually.

    As for Unicel, I got rid of them in 2000 when they were double-dipping into my checking account without showing double credits on their billing system. Typical cellphone horror story.
