Just ran across this interesting news bit:

“Verizon Wireless Says ‘Bring Your Own’ Device”

Very interesting, but after reading it, all it really sounds like is a slightly refined version of what GSM networks are all about. I have for the past 3 years brought my own device (in my case an Unlocked Treo) to AT&Ts network. I bought phone and data plans independent of the device (which admittedly kinda stretches the boundaries of some of AT&Ts policy, they have an idea of what plans I should have, which is different from what I think I need and have).

It will be interesting to find out what the eventual details will be, is it just going to be a SIM card for CDMA networks? Or will it be something more?

Have to wait and see I guess.
