I may switch, just not right away. I am hoping many people leave At&t to free up some bandwidth to make my service better. If I don't see an improvement, then I will give Verizon a shot. I didn't get an iPhone 4 just in case it came to Verizon. Only a little time left on my contract so, I have some time left to decide.

I'm personally staying with AT&T until the iPhone 5 comes out. If the iPhone 5 (or whatever they end up calling it) comes out on Verizon the same day as it does for AT&T, then I'll probably switch just to get on a family share plan with my wife. She can NOT get coverage with AT&T at work so it's not an option for her.
I already own an iPhone 4 so for me it would be getting the same phone I have now, which I would have to pay a lot to cancel, and 3on a slower network (for now w/o LTE). So I'm not switching yet but will someday.
Oh, if Verizon does something stupid like taking in trades and paying the ETF (or at least a good portion) then maybe I will switch right away, but I'm not holding my breath.

I left AT&T and sold my iPhone to go Verizon two months ago...just waiting for the VZW iPhone. I was dropping 50% of my calls on AT&T. The Droid Incredible I have now has NEVER dropped a call and I don't believe (READ: hope) it is not because of the iPhone. VZW + iPhone FTW!

Gordonw, when surfing on my vow blackberry storm the phone call will come through. I myself have been waiting for the day for vzw to offer the iPhone. Like since 2007. I'll be making the switch from the bb storm 2 to the iPhone, no matter if it's the 4 or 5 or 1. Just love the apple products and so use to using the iPad and iMac and the MacBook pro. My buddy at vzw store said the new phones they are coming out with on the droid network are bad a$$. Them being on the 4g and all. Oh well like I said before I've been waiting forever for one. And if it is just a little better than my crack berry I'm satisfied.

I'm happy with AT&T and won't be switching to Verizon. The service is great here in Western New York. Verizon customer service is horrible and they charge more. I travel back and forth from the US to Canada so Verizon won't work. I always feel bad for my Verizon friends when we're up in Canada at the beach and they can't get a signal Verizon is not an option for anyone traveling outside of the US.
I need voice and data for work...another reason why I like AT&T. I like that I can be on a call and my emails keep coming. I hated when I had Verizon and your emails would queue up until you finished calling or texting.

I have been searching for a similar device to the iPhone since my first iPod. I do like my Incredible but the combination and ease of the iPhone is what I always wanted. So with that said I am switching but the incredible is still going to be in my possession for my other lines so I guess it is a win win lol.

1. The Incredible reboots itself ocassionally for unknown reasons
2. The battery gets very hot
3. The touch screen is less responsive than the iPhone
4. Overall UI is not as good as the iPhone (this is just a personal perspective)
5. The market is a mess. I don't know any other way to put it. You may not like Apple's sandbox, BUT you can always get a better look at an app in iTunes than on a tiny screen compared to the phone.
6. Better battery life
My big hope is that the VZW iPhone will not drop calls. The Incredible has never dropped a call...I like HTC Sense UI but not as well as the iPhone. I do wish that iPhone had a decent lock screen. That is all.
