    Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook revealed on Tuesday that his company's agreement with Verizon for the CDMA iPhone is non-exclusive, meaning the new handset could also appear on Sprint's CDMA network.

    When asked if the new CDMA iPhone is exclusive to Verizon, Cook called the deal "multi-year" and "non-exclusive." That means the other major CDMA carrier in the U.S., Sprint, could also offer Apple's smartphone, if it were to reach a deal with Apple.


    Maybe others too.

    Verizon doesn't offer free tethering and their "unlimited" data plan is capped at 5gb.

    Doubt it... unless they're going to ship them over to the UK.

    The mobile hotspot feature is an additional $20/mo for 2gb. The unlimited plan as it exists now is NOT capped at 5gb. I think you may be remembering the old "unlimited" plan for USB modems which was capped. Eventually, the name was changed.

    It is not entirely clear yet that the plans will be the same as the current plans.

    I'm not remembering the old mobile plan for USB modems as I've never had one. I'm remembering being a Verizon subscriber with a smart phone.

    It doesn't really matter to me since I have no intention of going back to Verizon and I had Verizon for over 15 years before I switched to ATT.

    Your well documented dislike of Verizon does not change the fact the unlimited plan currently available for smart phones on Verizon is really is unlimited. As pricing for the iPhone data plans has not been confirmed, that could, of course change.

    I went to a local Verizon store today and I was talking to an employee there. He said Verizon was only going to have a 16GB model, not a 32GB model. This obviously sounds very wrong, at best. Has anyone heard something similar or was he misinformed?

    He was misinformed. 16 gig will be $199.99 and the 32 gig will be $299.99. This was stated in the press conference.

    Thank you. I was pretty sure that he was wrong, but it didn't change the fact that I was super irritated on the way home, so thank you for the info.

    It's early days yet. The iPhone isn't out to the stores yet. I'm sure most sales reps will be up to speed buy the time you can actually by the phone. You can bet that, right now, their bosses are telling them, "Sell what you have available right now! You have to make quota this month! Worry about next month next month!"
