None of the features would work if you tried to use a iPhone on Verizon because it wouldn't work? There is no way to hook the iPhone up to a CDMA network and make calls.

No you didn't. There has been no official release from Apple or Verizon yet, its just rumors.

Lack of physical keyboard doesn't bother me at all, I can type super fast with it and the auto-correct is so good I rarely have to correct anything. A lot of the Droids have no physical keyboards either.

The only thing that would work is your ability to call someone and go on the internet IF you have the data plan with your carrier...Hope this helps!
You wouldn't be able to make calls either, and the internet would only work if you were hooked up to Wi-Fi. The iPhone's chipset doesn't support CDMA, which is also why Verizon will never get the iPhone. T-Mobile would be the next logical choice, since they are the only other US cell provider to use GSM

I wouldn't say they'll never get the iPhone. They'll never get the current version, a entirely different CDMA model will have to be made.

I think it could be argued either way really, but you're right, a new model would have to be made, which is why I think they'll never get one...I'm probably wrong, but who knows?

I think we can both agree on they won't be getting one anytime in the near future. Definitely not in 2010.
