Verizon Twitter account hints at Verizon iPhone?

Verizon tweets hints at Verizon iPhone?

Seems like someone over at Verizon may have slipped up. It appears a Twitter user asked if Verizon getting the iPad could possibly be hinting at the release of a Verizon iPhone. Shockingly enough, whoever is behind the @VerizonCareers Twitter account actually responded back and said this -

"yes, that is the latest scoop".

This could just be a Verizon account acknowledging how widespread the rumor is, or playing a cruel joke on Twitter and Verizon iPhone supporters, or it could be an employee that isn't aware of the fact that putting internal information on Twitter is typically frowned upon. The tweet is still up and has not been deleted as of writing this.

Verizon getting the iPad is definitely a step in the right direction when it comes to Verizon earning the iPhone, but is this a bit of a stretch? What do you guys think?

Verizon Twitter account hints at Verizon iPhone?


Apparantly Mark Nachman said verizon is getting it. And anybody working in the chicago area for verizon KNOWS who Mark Nachman is. But I still don't believe it. hehe

No matter how many times you beat a dead horse, it's still a dead horse. Seriously do you really need to stretch this far?

Still just rumors and speculation. I can't see Verizon or Apple relinquishing one bit of the device control they've come to know and love. Plus, Verizon has spent an awful lot of advertising money AGAINST the iPhone (think of the "Island of Misfit Toys" ads last year).

This means nothing to me because i'm in Australia but it looks like Verizon iPhone is real, tweet deleted, employee gonna get some discipline!

With how secretive Apple is, do you really think that apple would let the person running the Verizon customer service twitter account know about a Verizon iPhone?

I'm f#cking dead. please, god, stop beating me. seriously, are you guys actually citing fake twitter sites to further the agenda?

Apple better get the iPhone on every single carrier because Android is on its way to smashing iOS just like Windows smashed the Mac....

Buy one get 6 android phone deal get yours today .... Hey u here android tops the os war?

Its also pretty funny that so many customers from diffrent companys hated on the iphone and now that there a chance verizon may carry it people changed there tune

The people hatingon the iphone are usually droid and anti apple people who will continue to hate it. Verizon gettin it hasn't changed there tune its the people waiting for it to finally to come to there carrier that didn't switch carriers just for a phone.

The way I look at this, Apple and At&t have both said that there is an exclusive contract till 2012. This happened last year as well. Not as much hype but there were Verizon employee's saying they were going to get the Iphone. If I was At&t I would sue. I would not give up this contract and let Apple know! I would not think that Steve Jobs would put Apple in the way of a massive law suit. Second why would Verizon want to launch the Iphone on their network? Only certain markets will be able to handle the phone. Meaning their new 4g markets. The CFO said a couple years ago the current network could not handle the Iphone and it need to be updated to their 4g. Food for thought.

While I am all for Android and to be honest I have not seen any real prof that it really exists. that is until now... this article "shows" a picture of the verizon iphone. What do you guys think?
