    I say bring on the iPhone to VZW. My wife will be the first in line for it (unfortunately). However, this will also help Android in the fact they'll be forced to bringing better devices and improvements in the O.S. beyond what gingerbread can offer.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

Nothing like a good competitive battle to spur manufactures to create the best possible product for the user. I have made it known I am a big fan of Apple products but I don't see myself switching to the iPhone if this is indeed what the OP is about. Android will survive the initial wave of sales and will come back strong.

But we all seen the writing on the wall. If At&t had another exclusive deal with apple they would not have been pumping android devices on their network.
    So I wont say i told you so CK.
    And to people who are feeling sick like the world is coming to an end just calm down because competition is going to bring better devices.
    Just saying....

    I came from at&t-iphone land about a month and a half ago. I hated the iphone-my wife loved it and misses it.

    I think the current droid users that aren't so"techy" will switch to the iphone to try it out. Most will love it despite no flash....

    The big impact will be all at&t customers coming to big red for having the iphone on a better network. At&t will hurt when verizon offers the iphone.

    My sales rep told me not to look for the iphone til mid-year at best because it isn't performing on their network how they want it to.

    This will help verizon leaps and bounds when it happens.

    Doesn't matter to me either way as well. I don't care for the iPhone. Great device but not for me.
    I don't care about an iPhone either (and I'm a Mac user). But what I am concerned about is the VZW network getting totally clogged with new iPhone users. Maybe LTE will solve this problem. If I'm wrong to be concerned, please correct me....

    Damn, you knew I was going to say something too...

    Knew it was coming, waited patiently, first day buyer.

    Won't it be funny when the iPhone 5 is still jailbreakable (I think I just made a word) and the Android phones released at the same time are not?? Will the Fandroids still claim it's "openness" is what makes android better???

    Lets just hope verizon stays a step ahead for the extra demand on the network. My main reason for leaving at&t wasn't the data network, that always seemed to work well. It was the constant dropped calls. I am between milwaukee and chicago and can't hold a 10 minute conversation without dropping a call?

    Verizon has more subscribers than AT&T already and it doesn't drop voice calls. The data network, on the other hand, is slower with Verizon off the gate, so after a bunch of vPhones get turned on it will definitely struggle in the short-term. LTE should help handle the load though...

    vPhone 5 is what is really going to move, not the vPhone 4. I think vPhone 5 will be LTE, or LTE upgradeable. I am not 100%, but I think AT&T is also investing in LTE over the alternatives. So a LTE iPhone 5 makes sense for both networks it will be available for, and makes the production of said device cheaper.
