NEW YORK -- Verizon Wireless has started an event in New York during which it is expected to say it will start selling a version of the iPhone. That would give U.S. iPhone buyers a choice of carriers for the first time.
Verizon's chief operating officer, Lowell McAdam, is appearing on stage.
Since it launched in 2007, Apple's phone has been sold exclusively for AT&T's network in the U.S., while most other countries had several carriers.
Analysts expect Verizon to sell anywhere from 5 million to 13 million iPhones this year.
