Will you switch to Verizon, because of the Apple iPhone 4?
posted by Ray S. / Jan 11, 2011, 2:48 PM
This is especially true today, as Verizon has finally introduced the Apple iPhone 4 to its network. And the question that many ask themselves is whether or not to jump ship and just go for it (in this case, go for Verizon). We are very excited to be giving you the opportunity to express yourselves on this very interesting matter now. No matter if it's AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile, it's only natural that some users are going through this moment of hesitation and consideration, about whether or not to leave their carrier, in turn for the chance to use the iPhone 4 on Verizon's vaunted network...
Will you switch to Verizon, because of the Apple iPhone 4?
AT&T was holding the iPhone back. Now I'll be able to use its full power!
Sprint has some decent WiMAX handsets, but this here's the iPhone 4! On Verizon!
T-Mobile does a good job with its HSPA+ network. A network alone though simply doesn't cut it.
How? What? Oh, AT&T is perfectly fine for me, thanks!
Never! The HTC EVO 4G is more iconic than this here iPhone!
T-Mo's outing 42 Mbps this year, man, and I just can't miss on that.
Just like it has been reported already.. Great for Apple, but for Verizon, it is a little too late.. Tooo many other options that IMO are better then an iPhone out there.. I will upgrade my whole entire family to either ANDROID or WIN7 Phones before we think about coming back to any iPhone.. LOL

This is a major move for Verizon customers. If they didn't get the Iphone this year a lot of current Verizon customers would have left I believe. I believe there will not be a new model Iphone this year. Im guessing just an IOS upgrade along with Ipad2 release and other Apple product refreshes but I think they will release the next Iphone as an LTE model for AT&T and Verizon with a whole new UI maybe customizable and larger screen.

Probably not. No one cares if it is the same iPhone out and the Droids over power. The people who would have left VZW already did. Now if an iPhone with 4G technology came out and VZW had it, then there would be more people leaving.

oh yeah and Sprint..we're taking your EVO 4G too just to let you guys know. ;]

But until Big Red starts offering plans priced on par with Sprints, many people won't even consider switching. The Thunderbolt isn't a huge improvement over the EVO 4G.

Why would anyone change to a CDMA network?

@tAHYK.. Are you serious?? Where have you been all ur life or at least in the last 20 years.. CDMA networks are more reliable and process things better then GSM networks.. If it had not been for Europe not wanting to upgrade their networks and stick with GSM, CDMA could had become the world standard.. The best carriers in the world has it. Korea, Japan, China, Russia, and to major carriers in the USA (Sprint &Verizon not to mention, ALLTel, USCellular, MetroPCS and others..) Wake up uuu.. LOL

Aww, looks like someone pissed in Hawk's cereal. First you couldn't figure out how to work a Droid X without breaking it because it wasn't an iToy, and now after you crowed that Verizon would never have the phone, you were proven completely wrong. :)

I'm going to stick with AT&T. I'd love the wifi hotspot, but ultimately, I don't live in one of the troubled cities and I have to admit that AT&T is faster than my old EVDO Rev A phone. Plus...you know...ETF...well played AT&T...well played.

An article said that the next update will allow all iPhone users to have mobile hotspot. I'm like you, I don't live in a troubled city so AT&T works better than the rest. I had Verizon and had dropped calls, slow or no data. Most people here has AT&T and loves it. The crap people talk about AT&T is mostly media hype. Yes AT&T needs to fix other areas in the US but it's not bad everywhere. I like my fast speeds and rollover minutes and solid voice and data connection. I stayed with Verizon as long as I did because I listened to the brainwashing commercials.

LOL.. ur right about them ETFs.. If it wasnt not for my Awesome Sprint plans, I would be with ATT my self with 3 more account for my family. The only thing stopping me is them crazy high prices ATT has for everything, and on top of that, VERIZON is the same if not worst when it comes to prices.. So I may stay with Sprint at least until there are better options and pricess in other networks..

Really??? Hmmm As an employee of VZW I re-rate for customers all the time. The only reason I can figure you may not have been re-rated for is you came into a store acting like a jerk. You get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar, if you want help, show respect and chances are you'll be helped.
