On the flip side you can unlock gsm and use on diff carriers so that's a plus but Verizon 4g takes sim cards now too so makes you wonder you will prob be able to unlock versions also.

To your question I pose another. How does AT&T currently compete with Verizon in the areas it sucks? Answer: the same way Verizon competes with AT&T in the areas they suck.
Just like those that have started this argument a million times on these and other forums, you have started an argument that can not be won as the answer is solely dependent on coverage in your area.
Once Verizon has an iPhone running on their LTE network and can play the simultaneous data and talk, what will the AT&T fanboys argue next?
I now leave this question/argument where it was when it started, pointless and un-winnable.

i live in New York, where all carriers have impecable service, so the service is not an issue for me. It's how the phones work. And if the service is not an issue and the iPhone 4 has more to offer on AT&T as the phone itself is concerned, it's just better in NY. Now, one might say 'just switch to AT&T', but that's not an option for me. I just wanna know what Verizon plans on doing to play on the same field with AT&T's iphone. Just the phone itself

I've used both VZW and at&t and in my area they are completely equal as far as coverage. Well, except in the elevators at work. Almost every VZW customer loses their call and I don't...
For me, at&t wins, not because of talk and surf, but because I get to use my unused minutes. Otherwise, it's 50/50 and an iPhone is an iPhone.

I'm on AT&T and love both the iPhone and the AT&T service. My son and 2 daughters and one daughter-in-law have iPhones on VZW. They are very happy, too. The issue is "how's the provider's service where you use it" issue. Internally the phones are different, but functionally they are very similar. The biggest issue is concurrent voice/data on GSM. But that is not an issue to everyone. As with most things, YMMV.
All of that said, I agree with the others... you cannot make a blanket statement like "everyone knows it's better on GSM" stick, no matter how you spin it.

Op. Not to add insult to injury, but I just noticed another one of you're threads and was wondering why you even bothered to revisit the already hammered "who's carrier is better argument" with this thread when you are not on Verizon or AT&T? Not adding up for me anyway.
and there is no injury inflicted here. i understand saying that if the responses weren't fan-boy and trolesque responses and were all just purely valid points to argue against what i was saying. and my intended discussion was not 'which carrier is better'. that was some other loser's 'argument'
