Credit Suisse estimates that once the iPhone becomes a "free agent", 1.4 million AT&T subscribers will switch to Verizon. With all of this talk of changing carriers, three times the number of iPhone owners are willing to break their contract to leave AT&T (3% vs 1% for other models). When iPhone users contract expires, 18% plan on heading for a new carrier, twice as much as non-iPhone users.
While 23% of current iPhone users in the U.S. said they would switch to Verizon for iPhone service, 63% said that they would stay with AT&T. 3% said they would switch to Sprint and 2% selected T-Mobile. Credit Suisse predicts that AT&T will have 18 million iPhone subscribers by the end of 2010.
