Here it is folks. It appears I was wrong when I predicted there wouldn’t be a Verizon iPhone this year as many tech writers/bloggers are receiving a mysterious invitation to an event that’s going to happen on 1.11.11.

It’s no surprise that we didn’t get invited but some high profile Apple bloggers were. MG Siegler of TechCrunch for example, got a personal invite. Siegler confirms that it is the first time Verizon sends him an invite directly. Other Apple-related experts claim they received a similar invitation…

We’re not the only one not being invited. Gizmodo, who has a pretty good relationship with Verizon didn’t get the invite. That’s another clue.

A January 11th announcement would work perfectly with the rumored launch of the Verizon iPhone on February 3rd.

At this point, I’m so over all these Verizon iPhone rumors that I just hope these are true. Let’s get it over with already!

    let the android slaughter begin, this will truly test the platform’s long term viability

  • Jerry

    would you eventually make the switch over to verizon? or are you happy with at&t. me in the either hand im 50/50 the service with att at my house is horrendous i get 1 to zero bars and its been like this since the first iphone so no matter how many bars att has been putting up it still hasnt fixed the problem here and also that little reception modem they were advertising is still not available here..and im in bronx new york. so im on the fence on this one..

    • I might have to get a Verizon iPhone, just so I know what I’m talking about on iDB. But I really hate Verizon’s customer service. I’ll probably wait a little bit and see how it goes.

        Wots good everyone? I just wanna say I’m from London n I when I hear you talk about att I assume you speak off ur contractor for ur phone so I have a question. Is att the only network that is enabled when u purchase an iPhone?
        over here we have a choice of networks . O2, orange , tmobile(which I think is att)n vodafone.these are the main networks. Can someone reply??? Thanks

  • jailbreaklisten

    Fix the date. This post says 1.1.11 it’s supposed to be 1.11.11

    • iKing

      Really? I’m pretty sure everyone knows what it suppose to be.

    • Fixed it. Thanks

      Tmobile is Tmobile here too and yea the iPhone in America is currently only tied to AT&T we have really stupid rules in america when it comes to cell phones and plans because of greedy ass behind the curve companies I lived in Europe you guys and japan of course are light years ahead of us so you guys don’t deal with this nonsense except of course your vat which is obscene lol

      • G

        Oh right I always thought att was something to do with tmobile.
        No wonder alot of you’s, in the states , are so eager to unlock. We don’t even have att over here!!! 

    I have a droid incredible and iPod touch. Having the iPod touch jailbroken has really convinced me that my droid sucks (horrible inconsistencies in the Android UI that will never go away). I will jump on the vzw iPhone asap

  • Manny

    Dude, I gave up on AT&T. I had T-Mobile all my life, and switch to them. I liked them a lot, but Customer service sucked, as well as their bills. I was paying a lot for less, but their service and 3G was great. I went back with them and worst mistake ever. I couldn’t make calls in my house, nor out side, and that 3G network was non existed. Now with Verizon, I miss only one thing from AT&T and that was my iPhone. Every day I check this and other sites just hoping I hear the good news. I can’t stand android phones, and think they are by far the crappiest things in the world. I’ve had 4 and over them, and my iPhone, it’s a no brainier which one I love the most. I just want this crap to be true, and we can get over with it already. By the way, I love Verizon and it’s by far way better then ATT and their over price crap, for crap.

  • Justin

    I’m still confused. Does this mean that come June/July of 2011 AT&T won’t get the new iPhone 5? I really don’t want to leave them, cause Verizon sucks in my area!

  • Jason masters

    The whole thing Is a hoax Verizon is rolling out a new android phone called the x

  • Manny

    No way they going to make this much news over a fucking X android phone. This better not be a god damn droid xxx or something stupid.

  • Peggy

    Could be that Motorola Xoom Tablet. Don’t know why they would make a big deal out of that though

  • msxy

    going to wait maybe it’s another lie or i don’t know maybe you was right ?

  • msxy

    hey sebastien look what i sent u it look amazing about ps3 geohot.

    and guys these days i am smelling rubyra1n coming in brutality !!! don’t u ?

  • G

    Can sumone please tell me what the positives are about a verizon iPhone n wether it will effect uk customers. I’ve been reading alot about all the hype n stuff but being that I bought ip4 just months ago it wd need a major upgrade in order for me to want to buy another newer iPhone. 

  • There WILL be VZW iPhone. Money drives almost every decision. When Apple developed the first IPHONE they had to find a carrier willling to redesign portions of ATTs network like how voice mesage dafa was processed and retirieved. ATT SPENT MUCHO DINERO AND in return they got an exclusive so they could makemoney back

    Thats over! Iphones a big hit and all carriers want a piece!
    Verizon. The best most reliableb i the US! Apple stands to make a lot more sales with VZW . Apple stock is at $333! It will be over 400 by june

    Its not gonna be anything android, all that was introduced at CES. Its either gonna be the iPhone or windows phone 7 announcement, which no one speculates… it was already said it would be announced early this year. My monies on windows phone 7.
