The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple plans to begin producing this year a new iPhone that could allow U.S. phone carriers other than AT&T to sell the gadget.
The new iPhone would work on a type of wireless network called CDMA, the WSJ reports. CDMA is used by Verizon Wireless, AT&T’s main competitor, as well as Sprint Nextel.
Verizon declined to comment for the WSJ story.
But what do you say?
Will you wait for Verizon or another carrier before buying the iPhone?
AT&T has come under criticism because iPhone sales initially overwhelmed its network. But the company says it has been investing billions to beef it up and improve service.
If you’re with AT&T, have things improved? Will you bolt to another carrier if the iPhone becomes available?
