    Regarding the first question, does anyone ever actually use data while on a phone call? Or is it just some bragging point?

    Worst customer service? check.
    Overprice plans? check.
    Poor network performance? check.
    iPhone exclusivity? umm, no longer a check.

    Yep, they are hosed.

    I don't get why AT&T didn't try to improve their network and service to try to keep their iPhone momentum rolling. They had to be making a ton of money. Was it really more profitable for them to just let their towers all fail and keep the profit, knowing they'd eventually be crushed.

    My wife's job got her an iphone for her company phone. When she left that job she was too hooked on the iphone to give it up. She loves it for data/web access but as a phone to talk on it's like a time warp back to Zack Morris's Saved by the Bell cell phone. It's pretty much a 50/50 chance that any given conversation will be dropped.

    People are going to be leaving AT&T en masse. I don't see how just taking the exclusivity cash grab was a wise decision for them.

    Great, this just means more uneducated people will be running around with iPhones.

    Re: Official: iPhone 4 to Verizon. Available Early Next Month.

    I've had Iphone for past two years and loved everything about them. I don't think I will jump the ship and go to Verizon just for their Iphone service. I havent really had any problems with AT&T. I am sure large chunk of AT&T Iphone users will stay with AT&T. There is nothing special about Verizon Iphone 4, I guess you get maybe better service/network (which I already have good service with AT&T).

    If Verizon were to offer better Iphone, then I would consider. But if not, I will stick with AT&T.

    This will draw quite a few customers over but AT&T also locked a lot of customers in to a long contract when iPhone 4 came out. They also offered existing 3g folks the upgrade to re up their contracts also.

    If Verizon is smart about it, they will offer some sort of special rebate to AT&T customers switching that are still under contract. Offer to pay their ETFs if they want to switch, and then sit back and watch AT&T cry.

    Not totally crazy aero but I don't know if they'll need to.
