It wasn't so long ago that the very idea of AT&T unlocking a customer's iPhone was unheard of, but over the last couple of years, things have improved dramatically -- that is, until recently, and no one is quite sure why.
Verizon Wireless may be an American carrier, but nearly half of the company is owned by foreigner Vodafone -- that is, until this week, when Verizon takes full ownership of the nation's largest provider.
While Apple already has a retail store in Tokyo, Japan, a new report claims a second store could join it in the months ahead -- and also suggests that the company may indeed unveil a new iPad alongside its new iPhone.
Apple's iPhone has had a tough go of it in Russia, where traditional carrier subsidies have been largely ignored in favor of prepaid handsets. Can Cupertino regroup and attack the problem from another direction?

Apple CEO Tim Cook appears to be bummed out that only 20 percent of iPhones sold are actually purchased in one of the company's retail stores -- a number he hopes to increase to 50 percent in the future.
Sure, now that T-Mobile finally has an iPhone to call its own, it may not seem like such a big deal when a smaller carrier gets it, but U.S. Cellular customers may be pleased as punch to hear about it.
