Verizon iPhone questions: unlimited data, tethering, mobile hotspot, simultaneous voice and data, international roaming?

Unless the entire internet and print media are wrong, we're just over 12 hours away from the Verizon iPhone announcement, yet many questions remain about unlimited data, tethering, mobile hotspot, simultaneous voice and data, and international roaming.

Will any of these be supported by a Verizon iPhone? Some of them? None of them? Let's take a look.

Will the Verizon iPhone help fix the AT&T iPhone?

Now that it looks all but certain the Verizon iPhone will be announced tomorrow, one of the questions that comes up is will users switching from AT&T help take the load off and create a better level of service for everyone?

First, a personal anecdote: I left Montreal to fly to CES 2011 last Tuesday. In Montreal the iPhone is fast, like HSPA 7.2 fast, with nary a dropped call and lost network signal, and a battery life that lasts as long as Apple's TV commercial suggests.

I switched planes in Charlotte and began to roam on AT&T. My iPhone 4 showed full bars but I kept getting a popup saying there was no network connection. That means the tower was broadcasting but there was no backhaul behind it. Like if your home Wi-Fi router is fine but your broadband ISP is down -- lots of radio, no internet.

Original AT&T iPhone: 4 years later

While everyone waits for the big Verizon iPhone announcement tomorrow it's a touch poetic to remember that the original Cingular/AT&T iPhone was announced on January 9, 2007 -- almost four years ago to to the day.

Do you remember what smartphones were like before Steve Jobs took to the Macworld stage and finally revealed Apple's wide screen iPod, internet communicator and revolutionary phone? Can you believe how far they've come since?

Let us know what you remember the most about the original iPhone introduction, what phone you were using at the time, and how in your opinion Apple has changed things (for good or for bad) since? Anyone still using their original iPhone? Share your thoughts!

Verizon confident enough to keep unlimited data plans for iPhone 4?

Now that we all just pretty take it for granted that the Verizon iPhone will be announced tomorrow and ship around the end of the month we can start sweating the details like -- will Verizon's network be able to handle the AT&T-crushing load and will they still offer unlimited data plans. According to "a person familiar with the matter" (probably not Steve Jobs, right?), the Wall Street Journal says the answer to both questions is "yes":

iPhone: No longer exclusive, still locked

With the expected announcement and launch on Verizon this month, AT&T exclusivity will be over and the iPhone will finally be available on another US carrier -- but it will still be locked.

Unlike most other countries where iPhone is available on multiple carriers, you won't be able to go to an Apple store and pay full price for an unlocked iPhone you can use on any network -- or any carrier around the world with a simple SIM swap. Verizon, being a CDMA rather than GSM carrier doesn't use SIMs.

Verizon iPhone to go on sale late Jan/early Feb

The Wall Street Journal claims, according to a person familiar with the matter, that the Verizon iPhone that's almost assuredly going to be announced this Tuesday will go on sale "around the end of the month".

The Verizon phone will be similar to the iPhone 4 but run on the carrier's CDMA technology, people familiar with the matter have said.

Sounds about right, if you want to leave enough time to build the marketing hype to preface Apple Store lineups and the rest of the fervour typically associated with an iPhone launch.
