Verizon Wake Up Call
I think Verizon is going to have a Major Wake Up Call if the iphone really does get released for the next generation to work with them. All those little red dots will be flashing due to power failures.
I have a feeling that as big as Verizon is..... I think that many people will switch to Verizon once the iphone is offered and let alone those that do have Verizon and purchase an iphone will cause the network to be extremely stressed just like it did on AT&T and just like it did in Europe.
Verizon... Pay attention and be ready.

Well I don't think that Verizon will be as impacted as much as people think. If they can't do simultaneous voice and data, it won't be taxed as much as people would like. I know for business I am on the phone while checking e-mails, responding to them, and looking at maps to get around. I can't do that on Verizon while using voice service. While they will be taxed, it won't be as severe. I might switch to them in a couple of years when they get LTE and if their prices are exactly the same or lower than AT&T. I see no necessary reason why they should charge $2.99 for visual voicemail.

I'm praying that verizon by passes the iPhone for android. Whatever network the iPhone is on its going to stress. If they want to keep their dependable service they better skip out on this business venture in my personal opinion

I think an iPhone on verizon has about as much of a chance as the iPhone supporting flash.
But that doesn't mean I don't want it to happen. I can't do anything with my iPod touch in my apt. Internet is hopeless, ability to make/receive calls is totally unreliable. Oops. I meant iPhone. Everywhere else is fine. And I'm in NYC. But I highly doubt AT&T will do anything to improve it.
I'm getting sick of it. By June of this year somethings gotta give. AT&T improves their service or iPhone goes to verizon.
I'm now thinking about an android handset + ipad combo.
