Apple as a carrier?: Steve Jobs originally wanted Apple to be able to operate the iPhone without help from carriers. That’s what John Stanton, a venture capitalist and wireless industry veteran, told his audience at a Seattle speech Monday, IDG News reported.

According to Stanton, when Jobs was first percolating ideas about the handset from 2005-2007, he discussed the feasibility of going around carriers and using the unlicensed spectrum that WiFi networks rely on for the phones.

I always suspected that was what he wanted but realized that it was impractical, even for him.
