    Cause they're jealous?

    Cause they know it sucks and it ruined at & t?

    Cause people on verizon were loyal consumers to the droid brand?

    Because Iphail was always looked down upon for being the competition?

    All of the above?

    A lot of them seem to think that it will hog data with so many users but the truth is Android phones use quite a bit more data so i think Verizons network has standed the test....I'm all for because as many people have said, it will make Android handsets manufacturers continue to improve drastically.

    I look at this as a good thing. More iPhones in the market create more competition. Competition is good for consumers. Now that Verizon has the iPhone more people will get iPhones. The more people that have iPhones the more Android devs have to work to get more customers. This will result in better phones, better applications and more stuff for those of us that decide to stick with Android-based phones.

    Also, this may cause a price war between AT&T and Verizon. iPhone was one of the things that AT&T had to keep the upper hand. Now that Verizon has one, and I'm no economy expert, I believe AT&T will have to offer deals to compete. Verizon will then have to offer deals to compete with AT&T.

    When phone carriers compete, consumers win. :p

    it also possible that verizon might raise new tiered data plan so no more unlimited data.

    Who is mad, I personally can care less, the consumer should have the right to purchase the product they prefer.

    ^ This as well. I couldn't care who wants an iPhone vs Android. The more choices I'm offered the happier I am. Before I was limited to dumb phones, RIM, Android, Windows. Now I have the choice of going Apple if I so choose.

    I seriously doubt Big Red will have to offer deals. They will now have best of both worlds, new Android devices and the Iphone. AT&T is probably quivering in a corner somewhere anticipating the loss of millions of customers because of their crappy service. I've been a VZW customer since 2002, and though their prices could be better, their service is the best imo.

    Android is different, not superior. Both have their positives and negatives. Please don't be blinded by loyalty to a product.

    I have never seen a company as big as AT&T just go, "Okay. Well, you win. We quit."

    I don't see there being any immediate deals/price drops/plan changes right away with Verizon, mainly because they just strengthened the already strong upper hand they have. I love Verizon and came to them from Cingular back when it was still around, but I do hope that you are wrong and Verizon doesn't become the only company people will go to for phone service. That is how monopolies are made. If anything I hope AT&T hits back with something that takes Verizon off guard, causing Verizon to do the same in return. Competition creates innovation and keeps companies in check. If no one is beating you then you don't have much motivation to do any better than what you're currently doing.
