“iPhone On Verizon” Domain Name Registered By Verizon Wireless?

We have been seeing rumor upon rumor pertaining to the imminent launch of a Verizon iPhone. While the launch date, price and distribution (whether it shall be only on Verizon or will the CDMA iPhone make it to the rest of the world as well?) all remain a mystery as of now, there is more news today that points out that Verizon may in fact be prepping for the launch of an iPhone.

A couple of domain names – iPhoneOnVerizon.com and iPhoneForVerizon.com seem to have been recently purchased by Verizon Wireless. The information comes courtesy the WhoIs records for these domain names that show Mark Monitor as the registrar with Verizon Trademark Services LLC as the registrant.

It may be noted that WhoIs records for domain names can be faked and hence this revelation is not entirely conclusive. Nevertheless, with rumors on a Verizon iPhone heating up, the latest revelation is quite interesting.

  • Hi,

    It seems to me “Verizon” would have purchased these domains… as all of them would no doubt violate both Apples & Verizon “Trade Marks”….. they may have obtained through a WIPO complaint(s) or trade mark lawsuits (if need be)…IMHO

    If they were already registered by someone else other than the two companies…

    I doubt they were available for “hand registration…as it has be know for many months that At&T’s exclusive contract with Apple…expires now with Apple.
