Verizon wouldn't do any better with the iPhone than AT&T did, why do you think they don't have it yet? If they really thought they could handle it they'd pay Apple endless amounts of cash to get it, but they don't. They know no network can handle the rush of iPhone users.
Heheh, , yuppers just a phone. Sucks too ya know, I'd love it if it made toast and scratched that spot on my back I could never reach, but yeah, it's just a phone. Granted I love the iPhone, I'll never not own one, but yup, just a phone, lol
I use to have AT&T, I went to the areas they claimed to have HSPA running, or 3G.
I have tried using speedtest in Denver, Houston, Salt Lake City, SanFrancisco, and Verizon was far superior in speed and signal. Unless you're running a dedicated data card, the AT&T 3G speed never got above 700kbps. My Droid speedtests at 1.4mbps in rural areas, same in metro. Tethering my Droid to a laptop yields the same bandwidth for the laptop.
I can also use more than 2GB without paying extra...... regarding the comment about not doing voice/data simultaneously.... wouldn't it be nice if your iPhone did voice at all? I had a 3GS and in the 6 month time period I burned about 1500 minutes...and of that I only had 2 phone calls that didn't drop.
