iPhone 4 question re os 5
I have Verizon and a BlackBerry Storm 2 and can change phones at the end of June. If I buy the iPhone 4 now from Verizon will I be able to upgrade to the new OS5 when it comes out in the Fall? It sounds like the new OS 5 is pretty exciting and worth getting if possible but not sure if I want the iPhone4 if OS 5 won't apply to the phone.

I was in the Verizon store today getting an iPhone for my wife an me today. I asked the rep who was helping us out if Verizon was getting the 4.3 update, or if they were waiting until 5 comes out. He said that he just got an email saying that 4.3 would come out next month. He was going to double check, but we got sidetraked, so I didn't get any further info. Take this info with a grain of salt as I don't have any proof.

More Verizon info
I've been emailing back and forth with Verizon to see if I purchased the iPhone 4 now would I be able to update the software to OS 5 when Apple releases it in the Fall sometime. I think they must have gotten tired of my emails as they called me today about it. The Verizon rep said (again take with a grain of salt) that at this point the Verizon iPhone 4 will not be upgradable to the OS5 UNLESS Apple says different when they release it. She said that is what happened when the latest OS was done with the Android. VZ thought their phones wouldn't get the upgraded software till the day that it was released.
As far as the unlimited data plan being changed.......if you currently have the unlimited data plan you will keep that plan when the switch happens as it is "grandfathered" for existing customers.
I currently have a BB Storm 2 and while it works ok most of the time (it does self reboot sometimes), I am planning to leave RIM and get an iPhone in the very near future but now have to decide if I want to change to the iPhone 4 now and hope that the OS5 will be compatible with it or wait till the OS 5 comes out and know for sure and change then. I know it's only a few months but when you can upgrade your phone the waiting can be sooooooooooooo long. My BB has been good for the most part but it is just so restricted in apps that I'm ready to switch.
So there ya go...............I kept emailing VZ because I wanted their response about the OS 5 in writing...........that didn't happen........
Oh one more thing..............the VZ rep said that CNN is what to watch for the most reliable news on cell phone information for any carrier and VZ employees usually find out the same news at the same time..........

While we are on the subject of Verizon reps being wrong... my phone was not connecting to my wireless router even though it said that it was available. I called Verizon and the level 2 tech said that the iPhone constantly switches b/w 3G and wireless. I told her that this is the most counter intuitive thing I have ever hear. She said for me to lock into wireless, that I had to disable cellular data. I laughed and thanked her for her time. Turns out that my router just needed to be reset.

I was in with a GPS problem. Said it couldn't lock on to me. (not my iPhone)
The guy in the store said that's because my phone is CDMA, and not a satellite phone.
These people at these stores are the biggest idiots I have ever had to talk to.
Don't even get me started on their confusion with iPhone Vs. Android.
