PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While everybody outside of the US has been able to mix and match iPhone and wireless operator, the iPhone was still tied to a single carrier in the US. Today, Verizon and Apple announced the much-hyped Verizon iPhone 4. While the rest of the world collectively yawns, this is good news for American consumers, since there will be more competition, and thus, more choice. Edit: Eh, the other way around. First choice, then competition.

I read this somewhere but haven't found confirmation so this info may be incorrect.

The first generation (or few) LTE phones on Verizon will be hybrid devices.

CDMA for voice + SMS
LTE for data
