    if yea that will stop a lot of ppl buying from att to unlock it for gsm cards, but then will it have verizon network what ever it is and the ability to use gsm sim cards also? use up more space? or will the american iphones be different and have the verizon network and outside of us have gsm?

    either way i think yes because even the ipad has verizon now

    I think it will be a good move for Apple to have more than one carrier for the iPhone.
    It will make the phone more accessible and will further boost their sales.

    Personally, I think it would be a wakeup call for AT&T if they would lose the exclusive. Although I heard a horror story about Verizon today, I will vote for Verizon although I know nothing about them.

    Actually, I would like it best if one could buy the iphone not locked to any provider and be able to chose who you want to buy your "gas" from (Internet Service).

    thanks for that :) nice picture ...


    well i know nothing of att either.... btw i read on the apple website att wont do unlock in the usa.. so you have to either swap your iphone 4 for a factory unlocked one or just jb an dunlock it....

    but verizon they dont use sim cards i am told right? so that would take up more space in the iphone wouldent it if they had the ability for gsm and the network that say verizon uses...

    it would stop loads of buyers who go to america to get the phone and never plan to use att just to get it a few bucks cheaper if they had verizon network on the american versions of the iphone..

    but you guys should have the choice to buy it and use with any carrier you want not who they want...

    even in the uk they had it locked to o2 up until the iphone 4....

    An answer with a picture at the same time is awsome. Thanks.
    Recapture:
    A sim card is currently in my iphone 4 with contract with AT&T
    A gsm sym card is more desireable because you can take it out and use it again without losing your number. You can use it in Europe? How do you get it? I am still a little lost.

    It's found at a slot the side of the iPhone, you can use your AT&T sim in Europe
    if you contact AT&T and activate roaming services. The iPhone 4 is quadband so in theory you can use it on any continent.
