    To each his or her own. I've had the worst experience with verizon and i dont care to use their services. And does anyone really think they'll give you a 30 dollar a month plan? Very unlikely. I think this is all just rumors.

    You can look at the bright side. Verizon is surpassing every other cell network out there with proposed 4G sites. They will soon have the largest 4G network than anyone....Clearwire is right behind them so we won't be locked in with one 4G carrier

    Verizon Testing iPads on Their Network

    According to Boy Genius Reports Verizon Wireless is testing iPads on their network. We can only hope that this means that they have struck a deal with Apple and that it will give us the chance to stick it to AT&T in the very near future.

    Hate to be a buzz-kill, but how can they be doing this? All 3G iPads are GSM i.e. they need a SIM card to work; I thought that Verizon's network CDMA i.e. the whole phone/device has to be built for that specific network? Or do I have this wrong?

    The article says the the "guinea pig" iPad would have to be a CDMA version (if it's true anyway)

    It is just a chip set. I would imagine that Apple made up a small run for Verizon to test. Even if they didn't, any competent electronics company could do the modification.
