Although there’s no confirmation yet, everyone assumes that the next iPhone — whatever it’s named — is going to have LTE onboard. Where I live, Verizon dominates AT&T in that category, so making the switch for me is something of a no brainer.

But what about for you? Will you make a switch if the next iPhone has LTE? Let us know in the poll to the right.

Here in the US, Verizon is pushing pretty hard to make sure that all new smartphones on their network are 4G LTE capable for this year. Verizon sells the iPhone of course, which begs the question, will there be a 4G LTE iPhone in 2012?

We’re not psychics over here, but we know everyone likes making their own predictions, right? Well here’s your chance. Let us know in the poll to the right what you think!

Although this very site is considered to be US based, our parent company is in Australia, my boss is in the UK and most of the writers come from all over the world, creating quite the mix of people. All of us who work for the site have iPhones obviously, but what about who we get our service through?

So I wanted to do a little experiment. I’ve put a poll up here with all of the major US carriers, plus a few UK, Canada and other offerings, just to round it out. But in case I missed something, I’ve also put down continents as well. By the time the poll is done, we should get a pretty good idea of where everyone is from — well, everyone who answers the poll, anyways.

We should be finding out about the new iPhone any day now, but there’s been talk recently about AT&T and Verizon dropping the prices on the iPhone 4 in anticipation of the new model. This is nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years now. But it made me wonder about our reading audience. When do you all buy your iPhones? Do you stand in line on launch day, wait a bit, or scoop them up at sale prices? Let us know in the poll to the right.

Whenever you buy a product, you always run the risk of something newer, bigger and better coming along sometime soon. But with Apple products, most of the time you have a general idea when the next big thing will be on the shelves, because they follow a fairly predictable pattern.

But then the expected release date for the iPhone 5 came and went and here we are with no idea when (or if) the iPhone 5 will make an appearance in 2011. Sure, all signs are that it’s coming out in September, but with Apple, no one can ever be sure.

So what do you do if you need a phone now but believe a new one should be out any day now? Let’s talk about that after the break.

If you don’t know already, for the past four years since the iPhone’s inauguration, Apple has released a handset in the summer (normally June or July). This has been to much fanfare as most evangelists haven’t had their hands on a new one since the previous year. However, it’s only February and one iPhone version has already been launched. Then there’s rumors of the white one coming out next and then the iPhone 5 in the summer?

Would Apple really release three versions of it’s device throughout the first half of the year? Let’s see if we can debunk those rumors!

If you’re reading this from the U.S., the fact that you might be doing so from a Verizon iPhone is big news. Many Apple fans have waited not-so-patiently for four long years for this opportunity and customers of other carriers are no doubt licking their lips wondering when their turn will come.

Now that the Verizon iPhone is officially in the wild, what effect did it have on the market? How are other carriers responding? Has someone hacked it yet? Today we’ll take a brief look at a world where Verizon iPhones exist.

February is a really interesting time to release a new Verizon version of the iPhone 4, don’t you think? I spot several impending complications with this timeline, not the least of which is a wrench in the typical cycle for a new iPhone arrival.

Today we’re going to discuss why you should think twice before purchasing a Verizon iPhone in February. Hint: It has to do with the upcoming iPhone 5!

We’ve heard the rumors for years and have been let down countless times. Many of us dared to hope that this latest round was true while others had long ago sworn off hope that it would ever happen. Today, the rumors will be permanently laid to rest because it has finally happened: AT&T has lost its long-held exclusive grip on the iPhone in the United States.

Verizon Wireless announced today that they will be releasing an iPhone. When will it be available? Is it somehow different that the AT&T version? Find these answers and more after the jump.

Though it’s still officially in the rumor stage (no announcement from Verizon or Apple), the idea that Verizon will start offering the iPhone early next year is seen as a fact by many sources.

Bloomberg, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal are just a few places where we’ve been seeing headlines announcing that the phone is already being manufactured and prepped for shipping.

What we want to know is, do you care? Have you had enough problems with AT&T to immediately go running to another carrier as soon as it becomes possible? Or perhaps you’re one of the thousands already using Verizon, waiting patiently for the iPhone to arrive.

Cast your vote and leave a comment below telling us what you think of AT&T and Verizon and where you’d like to see the iPhone go next!
