    Here's the article. It is only a rumor, but since Verizon has not announced any devices yet, it makes sense.

    Cool, thanks. At least now I know why my search didn't pull it up. I DID search before posting.

    They should have got some kid to tweet the story. WPCentral would have been more likely to believe it then apparently.

    Guys listen up I wrote the post and my source wanted to be unnamed because he likes his job at Samsung and really doesn't want to lose it just so I can have a post. Nor do I want to lose him as a source.

    I have received more than a few valid "tips" from him in the past couple of years and he has never steered me wrong. I have received carrier info (manly ATT) and lots of good inside info on the worlds 2nd largest phone maker too from him.

    Almost EVERY source does not want to be named in post so just to sweep it to the side because I don't want to out my source seems to be short sided at best. I really didn't want this to be true since even a delay would hurt Nokia greatly however I just report what I know. How about we just watch what happens and than we can judge if my source is good or not? ;)

    I guess we shall see. My friends training is definitely still on so most likely it's a small setback if anything. If something drastic happens I guess I'm off to sprint and the gs3.

    when it's a single, un-verified, un-proven source then it's not going to have much credibility here (rightfully so), when additional confirmation comes in then the situation has changed and so they put it up as possible. are you really trying to make this site's handling of this anything more than it is? and if so, why?

    As a former Daily Mobile frequenter, I would argue that it is a reliable source. It was one of the most popular Symbian forums, before Symbian got the shaft and activity died, of course.

    Keep in mind that CDMA is a bit of a nightmare to manage.

    But I don't believe it's "impossible" to create a CDMA WP8 device, for the simple reason that there are plenty of CDMA WP7 devices.

    I was reading in another forum that there were similar issues with the HTC Trophy that delayed it's launch. I am wondering if this is a just a rehash of an old rumor and it will remain as such. It is possible though that Microsoft would make the same mistake twice.

    I am just trying to be patient and wait until at least the 21st when pre orders go live, Verizon tends to announce phones on their 1st day of pre-orders or the day of availability if no pre orders exist so that sounds like a good point in time to begin to worry. If if the WP8 announcement passes with mum about Verizon I will then begin to really worry and start making plans to move to AT&T. It's not lack of a certain phone that would make me switch, but no WP8 at all would do it. If I was on Sprint I would already be lining everything up to switch to AT&T on launch day, only because Verizon is holding their breath.

    That pretty much describes where I'm at.

    Its funny people said it was debunked. Yet it appears on the front page. What make someone from WPC sources more credible that others.

    I hear the problem is over the "CarrierIQ" type software that Verizon wants to install.

    I just find it weird that Verizon employees are going through hands on wp8 training next week. Why dump money into something that isn't happening?

    What I find odd and why I don't believe it. It's almost release time. Surely they would have known about this for a while.

    Exactly. Maybe 2 months ago this is probable. Maybe one month ago this is believable. But now? No way.

    It is also possible that it has been an ongoing problem and the leak just now sprung. With them sending employees to a training conference I don't believe it is true that they plan on dumping it.

    Considering the fact that CDMA phones are being made for the Chinese market, I will say that it's not realistic for this rumor to be true. Unless Verizon does something that other CDMA carriers don't do.

    I don't believe this rumor for a few reasons.

    1) There's several reports of VZW WP8 training beginning shortly.
    2) Joe Belfiore has a Verizon HTC 8X by his own admission. He likely wouldn't have mentioned that if there were actually such grave issues potentially holding up its launch.
    3) Most importantly, if this were true, it would be *huge* news; big enough that The Verge or Engadget would likely know about and run with it.

    We're a little over a week from the launch of something that has been in the works for months and months. There's no way something of this magnitude is just popping up now.

    CDMA phones in Asia have a CDMA SIM type card for switching carriers, like GSM phones.
