In an unadvertised loophole, AT&T has allowed subscribers who have had an unlimited data plan in the past to switch back. That includes anyone who had an iPhone before June, when the limited plans took effect.
Pre-orders will start Feb. 3. The price will be $200 or $300 with a two-year contract, depending on the model, about the same as the iPhone through AT&T. It will be sold through Verizon, Apple and other stores nationwide, as well as over the Internet.
There's no doubt a Verizon iPhone would attract millions of buyers, and it would give the country's largest wireless carrier a chance to catch up with AT&T in attracting high-paying smart-phone customers. But the iPhone will also produce new challenges.
The company also joins handset makers to show off several smart phones that will take advantage of a speedier version of the current network.
AT&T Inc. is expanding Wi-Fi access for its subscribers in New York and introducing it in San Francisco, adding data capacity in two cities with heavy wireless network use from the iPhone and other devices.
While all big telecoms have sales teams that target big industry sectors like health care, it's unusual for one to set up a larger group that integrates several product categories. In AT&T's case, it will be selling wireless services, networking services like video-conferencing and "cloud computing."
