Verizon expected to announce it has the iPhone

This morning, Verizon Wireless is expected to announced that it will carry the iPhone. This is big news in Montana, where Verizon is a major carrier and where AT&T — until today the only carrier with the iPhone in the U.S. — has played only a bit part so far.

The announcement is going on now. You can follow along live with the New York Times as I am doing, or you can do a Google search for a different live blog. Just don’t say I never gave you nuthin’.

11:06 a.m. — And just like that, Verizon has the iPhone. It will be available early next month.

I need to call my phone guy.
