::iPhone for Verizon::

I really want to know if Verizon is going to get the iphone any time soon.
I have read that apple extended their contract with AT&T until 2010.
Then I read the iphone could be at Verizon sometime in 2009.

I really want the iphone and cant switch to AT&T.
My parents and sister who live eight hours away use verizon along with my BF so texting and calls are free all the time. Plus I dont pay my cell bill so I cant complain that I want a different service provider.
The major part, Verizon has kick ass service over AT&T too!

Ugggg I wish there was a definitive answer to this question!
Just thinking out loud……
