Official I'm switching to Verizon iPhone thread!
Are you leaving AT&T and switching to a sweet Verizon iPhone?
Are you already on Verizon and ditching your BlackBerry or Droooooid to go iPhone?
Are you finally leaving Sprint or T-Mobile to get on the Verizon iPhone bandwagon?
Let me know what you're thinking!

I have AT&T and am actually quite happy with their service in Arizona... I have no desire to go to VZW and certainly don't want to pay $1300 in ETFs for the privilege (4 lines on a family plan) ...
That said, my son, who is already on VZW will be ditching his Droid X for the iPhone as soon as it's available...

I have a Storm 2 and my husband has a Storm 1. We've been waiting for the iPhone for quite a while. Thankfully we're 22 months into our contract and fully upgrade eligible. I only hope VZW continues the unlimited data and lets us sign a 1 year contract (for a little more money of course) so we can get new phones every ~10 months.
AT&T doesn't provide service in our area, so that's never been an option.

I doubt it. OK, so now it's definite, but does the same sureness exist about the cost? VZ here costs roughly double what my T-Mob costs me for the same service. If that drastically changes, I may switch but I don't see what I'd get except VZ's coverage here is a slight bit better than T-Mob. Both flatten AT&T which is terrible here.

I'm on ATT and my wife is literally in love with verizon. we have had many "intense moments of fellowship" over whether or not we could switch to ATT because i love my iPhone. VZ get's iphone and i switch. hands down. then by 2013 i'll get a 4G-LTE iPhone and then the 'slow lane' is over. i can deal for a while waiting for VZ's upgrades. However, the dual core 1gHz snapdragon does sound delicious.

I won't be switching. Don't have any issues with AT&T. It will be interesting to see how many Verizon customers will be switching from their Android phones. For those on Verizon, we all hear the hype about surf and talk at the same time, but my question is when you happen to be online with your current smartphone, when a call comes in does the call cut through, busy signal, or voicemail?

I just hope I can buy it off contract when it releases. Unless it comes out in the next 12 days.

I had to switch from my iphone to verizon because of work. So far (4 months) i have gone through about 4 android devices. I have settled on the droid pro. while this phone works 50% of the time (which is great compared to other android phones) i weep daily over not having my iphone. yes, weep.
I hope you guys have a contest to get one because i cannot afford another phone. Please Georgia, you are my only hope.

If I possibly can, I will! I'm under contract with Verizon on a (REALLY lousy) dumb phone, as is my husband. We would both love to get iPhones, especially me. I'm just hoping that Verizon will let us upgrade early. It seems like it would be in their best interest to do so, since right now we don't have data plans. But I'm probably being too optimistic...sigh...

Okay, this is what I have been waiting for!
Finally, the Verizon iPhone is on the horizon! I have been dealing with MetroPCS fro a year because I refuse to give AT&T another dime for the hideous service they provide. While Metro is okay...well, the data speeds feel like dial-up. So yes, I am officially switching to Verizon! Long live the VeriPhone! I embrace my new carrier overlords!
Phew, I feel better. Not too over the top, I hope.

I like the iPhone, but I don't think I can ever downsize to a smaller screen. I have room for the keyboard and more content at the same time. While the large screen may be too big for those with small hands, its the perfect size for me.
but I find it funny. iPhone users don't want a larger screen, but they don't want a smaller screen on the iPad. They don't want bulk on the iPhone, but they want bulk on the ipad.
