    i really want to switch, but not being able to use 3g while on the phone really concerns me
    Look at it this way. when you talk on the phone, do you always check your e-mail or browse the web? I personnally find that to be a bit rude, but thats just me

    I currently have Verizon service and the talk and text is a big deal for some nothing to others. If you have wifi during most of your day it shouldn't be a problem because it should disable your 3g radio and send data through wifi leaving 1x open to talk. My one hang up is Verizon's network speed, yeah they have alot of 3g coverage but were I live and work I'm luck to get more than 512k down with a 139ms ping that's horrible in my book. The best I've gotten was 1.2mb down with 328kb up but your speeds may very just don't expect blasing fast internet while on 3g

    I have an unlocked iPhone 3GS on AT&T that's contract-free (I moved from England last summer where unlocked phones are more common than warm beer) so I could easily switch to the iPhone 4 in February. But I will gladly wait until June to see:

    1) What the iPhone 5 offers (my sincere wish is 64gb but not likely)
    2) What the introduction of the iPhone does to Verizon's "reliable" network
    3) What voice, data and texting packages are being offered

    Right now I have a grandfathered unlimited data plan on AT&T with 1000 anytime minutes for $39.95. The only times my calls drop is when I'm driving into a valley near my home and I doubt anyone could give me coverage there.

    I'm more than willing to wait and see which carrier seems more appealing to me in June.
    rue that... Thats where I am too. I want to switch but I want to see whats coming out in June/July....

    There is no official word of a LTE iPhone coming out anytime soon. Since Apple doesn't like to adopt new technologies chances are of a LTE iphone are about as close as Jared Lee Loughner talking to the FBI.

    Hyperbole.

    Verizon & Apple have a multi-year agreement. Verizon will have their entire network covered with 4G/LTE by 2013. There will be a 4G/LTE iPhone. Both companies would be utterly foolish not to do it.

    I am switching from my Verizon Storm1 to the Verizon iPhone. I have wanted an iPhone since they came out but couldn't go back to AT&T after all the years of crappy service they gave me.

    I am happy!

    The Verizon announcement already happen. They said in the Q & A that the LTE chip would require a total redesign of the phone and Apple is not ready for that.

    it'll happen, just not this year. Most likely 2012, maybe that's why they're release the Verizon iPhone 4 now so that a year from now they can release a CDMA/LTE iPhone 4G/5 on Verizon next Feb.

    My fiance' and I are switching from the Storm 2 to the iPhone. Can not wait for this as Verizon is who all of my family is on and I have 5 lines with so switching to AT&T was not an option.

    I left Verizon for the Iphone 3gs a few months ago. My coworker sold me his Iphone 3gs so I am on a month to month contract with At&t.. I loved Vzw service but thier smartphone would not allow me to access sites that I use on a daily basis for work (IT).. I think I will wait till June/July and see if they cpome out with a 5 and test it... then Ill make my decision... right now I get more dropped calls than I ever did...

    Have the HTC Incredible at the moment. It is a great phone and does most everything I need, but I can't resist the allure of the iPhone.

    I went BB to iPhone. Took me a few weeks to get fully comfortable, but now that I've been iPhone for a few months, I find the BB to feel like stone age tech.

    You will have issues at first, but give it a few weeks to learn to get with the flow.

    I was going to get the iphone, but im gonna get the HTC Thunderbolt instead. It will be released the 14th and available at BB which means i can get a discount. It's bigger, which was the deal breaker over the iphone and has a FF camera and 4g, which is available here in Phoenix. I still like the iphone and will switch to it if they release a larger version next year. For now, i convinced my mom to get it. It's good enough for her.

    I can't say I'd leave Sprint to go to AT&T, but I am seriously considering leaving them to go to Verizon.

    If I can get my hands on a 4G Iphone without any cost to me, it's a wrap for Sprint.

    Otherwise, I'll wait it out and see if the Feb 7 reveal or June/July IPHONE 5 nets Sprint an IPHONE

    If it doesn't, I'm on to Verizon.

    Pretty much where I am with this.

    Same phone and everything.

    That Epic just isn't all that Epic, at least to me. lol
