  1. While it sounds good on the surface, shoving voice traffic down the data channel with all the other data, especially with Verizon’s slower data network, may not be such a good idea. Sounds like an ugly hack. We’ll see how well that actually works, if it actually happens.

    The reason that people are still in denial is that it has been talked about so much and for so long that no one want to continue being let down when it doesn’t happen. Notice that the title of the article states “RUMOR.” A year ago, a mother of a Verizon employee stated that the Vz iPhone was going to be announced in June and was to be available in Sept – and it of course never saw the light of day.

    Until Steve is on stage and announces a Verizon iPhone, I won’t believe any rumors.
