    HTC is trying to make a comeback, but the second largest carrier (98 million subscribers) in the US isn't going to offer the phone?

    They already have the Droid DNA on Verizon. I don't think HTC wants to cannibalize their own phone

    I guess Verizon didn't want it....I'm sure HTC would like them to offer it so they can sell to 'everyone'

    Not HTC's fault necessarily. If Verizon did not want it, they did not have to take it. Stupid reality of the US market. This was probably decided months ago. Verizon took the DNA and passed on the ONE.

    It does suck a big one though

    Verizon gets enough phones all to its self like the Razr phones and the DNA.

    Having the DNA as a high end HTC phone is pretty clearly the reason they won't be offering the new One...but the fact that it is a different high end phone than what the other carriers will be offering makes it a little tougher to market

    I've seen more ads for the DROID DNA than I have the entire 2012 HTC One series. They'll be fine over at Verizon, for now.

    I'd bet that this was 100% Verizon's decision. They like to space out releases to maximize sales. Carrying the One would immediately destroy any future DNA sales.

    I do feel bad for VZW users though, since they're one of the very few who won't be able to buy the new flagship HTC device. The One looks like one hell of a device with amazing camera and sound upgrades. I'm glad it's coming to T-Mobile.

    I wonder if part of the reason it's not on Verizon is because they wanted to plaster the One with the Verizon logo and custom bloatware, and HTC finally said, "no." The Droid DNA is a bigger reason obviously, but the branding issue makes me wonder if it played any part at all. If HTC is serious about finally offering the same phone everywhere a la the GSIII, they need to put their foot down on carrier branding.

    maybe. there really wasn't much time between the Thunderbolt and the Rezound though.

    it will be interesting to see if they over-bloat it with social media apps. I'd rather have a great working phone not tied to a charger all day over the latest and greatest FB/Twitter software.

    For the sake of our friends on Verizon who want this phone, I hope something changes.

    Why can't HTC just sell the One as a developer/off-contract phone that works on Verizon? I'd gladly pay full retail for a bloat-free and unadulterated HTC One that I could use on Verizon's network. I'm tired of the crap on Verizon's phones that I do not want!!!

    Are you all talking about the tiny branding on the home button? Are you not saddened by the huge Verizon branding on the front of every HTC and Motorola phone? Is it simply the placement on the home button that bothers people?


    Back on topic, I hope VZW gets a variation of this phone, and a new Motorola X or whatever it might be. Add the new GS4 coming soon, that's a powerful lineup for 2013!

    CDMA and the fact that Verizon has a white list of allowed devices. If you're interested in carrier freedom, I'd suggest moving to a GSM network like AT&T or T-Mobile. Ever since I left Sprint years ago, I can't see myself ever going back to a locked-down carrier. With Verizon and Sprint, you use the phone they want you to. With GSM, you can use pretty much any phone in the world.

    The Nexus 4 tempts me on a daily basis to jump ship, but AT&T and T-mobile coverage isn't the greatest where I live. US Cellular is the only other option besides Verizon. I'll just have to buy developer edition or Nexus phones if I stay with Verizon. It would be interesting to see if Phone manufacturers like HTC could side step the carrier branding (etc.) by offering off-contract/unlocked phones directly to customers to create more brand identity for themselves. I can only imagine the lawsuits coming from Verizon claiming that such unlocked phones put their network in jeopardy.

    I'm not saddened by the Verizon branding on the front of every HTC and Motorola phone for Verizon because I understand that we are not the customer for those HTC and Motorola phones. Verizon is.

    That said, it was an absolute **** move by Verizon to slap their logo on the home button of the Galaxy Note 2.

    I totally get what you are saying, still not a big deal for me. At least if VZW gets this phone, there is very little room for Verizon branding on the front...although I'm sure they will find a way if possible!
