    Come on guys. We are all iPhone users here to help each other out. Some are only offering their opinion about why something may or may not have happened. It doesn't look like flaming or hating. Just their reason which had a valid point. "Can't we all just get along" - Rodney King

    I've been chatting with many Vzn users. Never a problem. Just a couple people didn't like my posts and turned it I to a carrier war. Your right I was just stating my opinion and I meant no harm. Thanks for understanding my original post.

    I know. Me and you were jabbing each other the other day about our carriers. And not harm no foul. And at the end of the day, it's only a carrier. Not my wife, not my mom, not anything that I cannot live without.

    And you're right it's an 8 month phone. I waited in line back in June for the iPhone 4 for AT&T. It's the same phone. And I know I just upgraded in Feb for an 8 month old phone. But I've done worst for more many times

    The preorders I feel are a huge reason they had small lines. I mean they supposedly sold a million or so in preorders I mean and when they were predicting to sell 5-6 million the entire year the one million is a lot for just current customers. At&t didnt allow preorders which is why they had huge lines
    I think AT&T allowed pre order...I pre-ordered my Iphone 4...i think the biggest reason was the iphone 4 has been out for so long....Do you think AT&T or VZ will get the iphone 5?

    Yes AT&T pre-ordered but they didn't allow people to get them before the device actually launched. And like most of us can agree, it was the new model at the time. VZW shipped these before the launch date which kind of showed that they felt it wasn't a new device so it was no need to make everyone wait until 1 day. I think both will get the iPhone 5. I don't see Apple missing the chance to sell to both customer bases. There have already been rumors about Apple working on a dual mode iPhone that could do both GSM and CDMA. Which would make it probable that both carriers would have one.

    Yes I believe both will have it at the end of June. Apple would get hammered if they dont release it to all and they want to make billions of profit.

    I think the lines were short because of the mandatory $30 data plan. I think At&t saw sales jump when they started offering tiered data. We can't really tell the appeal of At&t vs Verizon until they match each other's plans. Perhaps in a month or two VZW will bring tiered data back. That's what I'd need to go back. I like my $15 a month data despite the frequent call problems I have. I picked up my iPhone 4 in September and have used "Mark the Spot" over a dozen times. That's more than a dozen dropped or failed calls in only 5 short months or to put it another way more than 3 times the number of dropped and failed calls I had on Verizon in the 10 years before I switched. So I'll be going to Verizon as soon as I can get the same pricing I get at At&t. Oh, and as soon as the ETF cost goes down enough for me to switch($325 minus $10 a month).

    Another reason for the short lines is VZW isn't letting their Droid prisoners out of their contracts. I know a guy with a relatively new LG Ally who can't switch for another 15 months. All that talk of big rebates for trade ins is for people bring phone lines from other carriers. I was offered over $210 for my iPhone 4. Not quite enough to cover my ETF not to mention the cost of buying the CDMA version of something I already own. So Verizon's conservative pricing and policies are having an effect as much as cold weather and the fact the phone is 8 months old.

    Perhaps this is all part of the plan to ease into the iPhone without a spike in users? That way, the can stay ahead of demand.

    I think most people wanted a iphone got droids and are stuck in contract. If iphone came out before the droidx/incredible things would be different.
