Verizon CEO won't confirm iPhone-Verizon deal


Verizon Wireless chief executive Lowell McAdam said on Wednesday that he wouldn't confirm a Wall Street Journal report that Apple is preparing its iPhone to operate on Verizon's CDMA network.

In a news conference at the CTIA-The Wireless Association fall convention in San Francisco, McAdam said such stories "roll out every few weeks" and that Apple would be the one to make such an announcement. McAdam, who heads the nation's biggest wireless service operator, reiterated previous remarks that "at some time our business interests [with Apple] will align," adding that the launch of Verizon's mobile broadband network, LTE, "is another reason why [Apple] would want to have a device on this network."

In the WSJ report, sources said Apple is preparing devices for mass production to run on CDMA networks, the standard for Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel. Apple has an exclusive arrangement with AT&T to carry its iPhone and iPad service. That business arrangement has helped AT&T compete against Verizon in the smart-phone market. The Federal Communications Commission said it would review whether exclusive handset deals are anti-competitive and block smaller carriers from gaining customers.

McAdam said that as more users access the Internet and consume data over networks, it makes sense to move to tiered pricing based on how much data is used. But he didn't offer a timeline on such pricing options. AT&T and Cricket have already moved to tiered pricing for wireless customers.
