Verizon/Apple deals for existing users?
By Dave Winer on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 12:40 PM.

A picture named iphone.gifI would definitely like to simplify my mobile gadget setup, if Verizon has a deal for me.  permalink

Of course the mainstream reports don't have a lot of details on this, and I kind of doubt if Apple and Verizon are saying what the user options are.  permalink

Nonetheless there must be a lot of people who, like me, fed up with AT&T, but wanting to keep my iPhone, got a Verizon device to supplement.  permalink

I actually carry two extra Verizon devices! :-) permalink

1. AT&T iPhone. permalink

2. Verizon MiFi. permalink

3. Verizon Droid. permalink

It would be worth paying a premium to Verizon to combine all these into one super iPhone. permalink

Of course then there's the certainty that in June (or thereabouts) Apple will refresh the iPhone. Do I really want to buy a second iPhone 4 right now, or should I wait? Knowing myself and my lust for all forms of Apple newness, it will be hard to resist. permalink

Anyway, does anyone know anything about the deals Apple and Verizon may or may not be offering, or is it just the usual "Pay up sucka" plan. permalink
