That is verizon for you as they are trying to slow down the loss of customers who leave for AT&T - even with that happening they are still gaining subscribers from SPRINT and TMOBILE.

what are you talking about? VZW has the lowest churn of any company ever. They lose very few customers to other companies. And about 40% that leave for the iphone, RETURN. That doesnt say much for ATT does it. Leave for the phone, come back for the service.

Money talks....bull shyt walks....shoot all you won't at apple bet it won't sell out of inventory in 3 days if they sell out at all. Not saying apple is a better phone but don't talk trash until you see the weekly sales 1st.There nothing worse than being the better phone and coming 2cd place in sales from the crappier one.

I would like to know why people regard sales as the only distinction in making one phone better than the other? In my opinion the phone that has the best features and stands the test of time is the better phone. iPhone 4 has probably the best screen, and even that is in question right now, but that's about it. If you polish a turd it will sell, but underneath its still a turd.

The Droid X has the bigger screen and that's about it also. Where exactly does the Droid X beat iPhone?

Camera? Video Camera? Network? Not Crippled? Better 1GHZ processor? want me to keep going??? OH!!!!!!! You CAN hold it ANY way you like!

Well 8 megapixel camera isn't that great (whether its better or worse than the iPhone I don't know yet). The iPhone's HD video is better hands down. Not crippled? That's not a big issue for most. If you can root then you can jailbreak, same shizz. Better 1Ghz processor? How do you know that? Yes I would like you to keep going. You can hold it anyway you like? I agree 100% on that one.

I have never owned a phone where if I hold t normally the call drops. Phone looks great and if I were a VERIZON customer I would grab it up.

i just switched from verizons incredible to the IPHONE 4, i must admit this is a funny ass add, however comparing motorolas quality of phones to appples quality is like comparing Hyundai to BMW. Also i bet it wont sell 1.7 million over the weekeng, no matter how hard anyone tries its impossible to beat APPPLE. i had every phone on verizon and i love the iphone more then any phone i had, although i must admin reception wise and 3g coverage wise verizon is a LITTLE BIT BETTER.

well yea i admit iphone is better but i rather have a crappy phone on verizon that can atleast make calls my girlfriend got the new iphone 4 n well its fails as a phone when u need it.. so im sticking with verizon. n who cares if it wont sell 1.7 million on the first 3 days like the iphone.. at least i bet this phone can hold a call longer than 5 minutes with out it dropping the call ..

"omarc26" I can hold a call for longer then 30 min anyday anytime, i was on the same page as you very spectacle about AT&T and their network, so far as i have stated above i noticed VERIZON a bit better but not by much, on top of that i dont get dropped calls and can hold a call longer then 30 min easy i havent talked with no one longer then 30 min so i am sure it can even hold it longer.

I have an iphone and no reception issues. I personally like Verizon's customer service and would switch back if they got an iphone and off of CDMA. Once you start talking, surfing, texting, at the same time, and easily swap sim cards to a crappy phone when you go overseas.. It's hard to go back, but I'll tell anybody that Verizon has the best customer service. Hopefully LTE comes soon

The only reason people are leaving Verizon is to get the iPhone. The reason people are leaving AT&T is the poor service and customer service. According to Bloomberg there will a vzw iPhone by January which is when Verizon makes the jump to lte and Apple will not have to manufacture a cdma version, because the iPhone will function on Verizons network. If this does really happen talk about people leaving AT&T's sinking ship. Because the iPhone is the only thing keeping them afloat. As far as phone quality the android based phones had the iPhone beat even before it was released. Non of Motorola's phone's had lawsuits slapped on them as has happened with the iPhone 4G as announced on the local news last night. Say what you want about Verizon. But when they release a new device there might be a few minor bugs which are soon fixed with updates, not like AT&T with as many problems that there faciliting with the iPhone and the major issues it faces . Bad reception caused by a bad antenna can't befixed by a ota upgrade. So why did they release the iPhone before it was ready?
