Verizon to start selling iPhone on Feb. 10


Verizon Wireless made the long-awaited announcement Tuesday that it will start selling a version of the iPhone 4 on Feb. 10, giving U.S. iPhone buyers a choice of carriers for the first time.

New Yorker Wes Moe can’t wait. He has wanted one to accompany his iPad and Mac, but held back because he shares a Verizon plan with his wife, a BlackBerry user.

“I’m super happy with all those other Apple devices, and I want that phone in my hands,” said Moe, 32.

In the U.S., the iPhone has been exclusive to AT&T Inc. since it launched in 2007, frustrating many people who for one reason or another haven’t wanted an AT&T phone.

“I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been asked and my colleagues have been asked … When will the iPhone work on the Verizon network?” said Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, at Tuesday’s launch event.
