Verizon Wireless to unveil iPhone Tuesday: source

* Service pricing unchanged for iPhone customers

* Sales to start a few weeks later

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Verizon Wireless plans on Tuesday to unveil a version of the Apple Inc iPhone for its service and will kick off sales of the device a few weeks later, according to a source familiar with the announcement.

Verizon Wireless, the top U.S. mobile provider, will offer the iPhone to its customers under its existing wireless service price plans, said the source, who asked not to be named as the plan has not yet been announced.

Apple and Verizon Wireless declined comment.

Verizon Wireless, a venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group Plc, will announce pricing for the device at an event to be held in New York on Tuesday.

The agreement between Verizon Wireless and Apple marks the end of AT&T’s iPhone exclusivity. AT&T Inc, the No. 2 U.S. mobile service, has been the only operator to sell iPhone since it launched in 2007.

The Wall Street Journal had reported on Friday that the Tuesday event would be to announce a Verizon Wireless iPhone.
