Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg
Verizon comes crawling back to Apple

Apple's iPhone is currently one of the hottest smartphones on the market. In just three short years, Apple has gone from being a non-factor in the smartphone market to one of that is always in the crosshairs of smartphone makers when they release a new model.

In the United States, the iPhone is currently tied exclusively with AT&T for phone/internet service. Although iPhones will work on T-Mobile's network, customers must first jailbreak and unlock their phones which in turn voids the warranty.

We are now learning that Verizon's CEO has been making it known to Apple that his company now wants the iPhone. If you may recall, Verizon initially turned down the iPhone back in 2005 when Apple was shopping for an exclusive carrier, so Apple instead went with Cingular (which later became a part of AT&T).

Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg also made reference to the Wall Street Journal article from last week which stated that Apple was working on a CDMA version of the fourth generation iPhone. Seidenberg, however, made no further comments on the matter. He perhaps feared the wrath of Steve Jobs and the possibility that any mention of an official deal between Apple and Verizon would result in the swift revocation of any partnership.

Apple will provide details on iPhone OS 4.0 this Thursday, while fourth generation iPhone hardware isn't expected until the latter part of June.
