    I have a grandfathered plan from Verizon. I snuck in when they had a month of unlimited data for like $30 for family plans. I bet it was to jumpstart the family plans to buy smart phones. And... it worked for me haha.

    "The Next Gen iPhone to come stocked with iOS 6.0"

    That's not true. Who confirmed this? I mean, it's obvious. But it's not "confirmed" the next iPhone isn't even confirmed to exist yet.

    -----

    Verizon's said if you ever want to move from a 3G device to a 4G(LTE) device they won't let you keep your grandfathered unlimited data plan. Also, they've said they're not stocking 3G devices anymore. Only LTE from here on out

    ok
    @iFish its assumed the next iPhone is coming out this Fall with iOS 6.0 and LTE/4G
    @bortz and @iFish on Data plan yes there is a way to be able to keep your unlimited data its by buying a new device outside of the upgrade wtih Verizon, so if you go to ebay and buy a new 4G device all you need to do then is just register it under your account and you get to keep your unlimited the only downside is that you cant get the discounted price to upgrade your phone so when teh new iPhone comes out this fall i will be buying it from Apple directly unlocked then registering it with verizon so i can keep my unlimited data

    Sad to hear that users still have to buy their own berets and Starbucks Gold Reward programs.

    Are the ipad 1 and 3GS exactly the same? I dont know im asking, the iPad might be able to handle more. Its possible the 3GS has much less under the hood than the original ipad.

    The iPad uses the A4 chip, used in the iPhone 4. I think the main reasons why it isn't supported:

    1. iPad has a much larger screen = more rendering.

    2. iPad doesn't have any cameras

    3. Battery might be largely affected (remember the iPad is largely advertised for its 10hour battery life)

    Overall, I'm hyped for iOS 6, but not too much for MacBook. The new Pro (fatter one) looks nice and the price is quite acceptable, but I don't like shelling out $2500 just for it.

    I can't wait for Siri on iPad and the Cantonese option. Sounds very good.
