I like this part:
Now I really know what "network congestion" means. Switching from an AT&T iPhone to a Verizon iPhone is like finally being able to breathe clearly after years of battling allergies. People can hear you better, and you can hear them better. It's that simple. That's the key reason so many people have clung to Verizon while resisting the shiny allure of the iPhone.
As we all suspected would be the case, the iPhone is a better phone on Verizon than it is on AT&T.

Nice to know I mean i figured it would be better on verizon's network but maybe if people jump ship from at&t it will clear up the network a little for those who stick with at&t so maybe then they can make calls without dropping them all the time lol

Let's look further into that article where it is talking about the death grip:
This Verizon version of the iPhone 4 seems to have none of the same antenna issues. Try as I might, using the "death grip" and every other grip I can actually do, I can no longer reproduce the same attenuation problem that the previous iPhone 4 model had. I death grip the thing, and no bars drop. More importantly, calls don't drop and data doesn't stop. Again, Apple won't comment, but problem, apparently, solved.
That was caused by the network too I suppose?
Let's not even talk data, let's talk calls:
In my tests, the new Verizon version of the iPhone did much better at voice calling than the AT&T version,
Let's be clear here, however. Calls were consistently connected and uninterrupted, far more often than our AT&T calls in the same time period in similar locations.
Yeah, I'd say I'm satisfied.

In the end its still an iPhone 4. nothing more. Nothing less.
Also remember this. AT&T never had any real issue untill the iPhone came. Once the iPhone came and everyone got sucked in, thats when the problems started.
Its 2011. A good chunk of the mobile phones sold and even made are infact smart phones with data plans attached to them. It does not matter if its Android, iOS, Palm or BB. More and more people are buying smartphones nowadays and they are using up data. That alone will put a strain on ANY network, not to menton Apps that use data 100% of the time and for some (mostly iPhone users now) that will never close the app and will always keep it running, theres bound to be a lot of data used.

Android users gobble more data than iPhone users - Technology & science - Wireless - msnbc.com
showing android uses more data than iphone. You have to remember most people whom are on verizon have an android phone so if they switch it isnt going to have the same amount of strain. at&t went from having virtually no data use before the iphone to having a ton of data use all at once. Verizon has had this over time so its given them more time to work on building their network

and you are on a call? Aren't you special. Hopefully who ever you are talking to is not mad that you are being rude by ignoring him/her by posting on a tech blog.
