Apple’s decision to pair with AT&T has been both blessing and curse for the US’s largest GSM carrier – while sales have skyrocketed, network loads have become an ever-escalating problem ever since. Verizon uses CDMA, and has traditionally had a great network; rumors about a Verizon iPhone have thus started quickly.

Engadget now reports about a Wall Street Journal interview as follows:

So far, Verizon has not had too many issues with its lack of an iPhone – other smartphones have more than made up for the lack of the i device. However, a Verizon iPhone would definitely be a nice PR stunt – let’s see how this plays out…
