Any iPhone people leaving for Verizon?

So, it is official.  Verizon will be getting the iPhone in February.  Do any of you people plan to defect to Big Red?

 

I was all about the iPhone until I got an Android based phone.  I honestly think the Android is better just because the app market open and not controlled like Apples is.

 

Thoughts?

So why are you still posting in the iPhone forum?

I have no intentions of leaving unless AT&T stops grandfathering the Unlimited data plans. I actually enjoy my ability to make calls and check surf the web at the same time. But if it came down to that Talk/Surf vs unlimited data I would chose unlimted data.

I didn't... a mod decided to move it here from the 'General' section.

I think it would be foolish to jump from AT&T to Verizon over this. But hopefully a lot of whiney AT&T users with iPhones, jump ship. Smiley Wink

until they realize how much it will cost to get out of the ATT contract - especially if they are on the 325.00 smartphone etf. Will be interesting to see how many put their money where their mouth is, not to mention roll over minutes, which verizon does not have

 

Have 0 desire to move, would end up costing me a lot more. Have a 700 min family plan with unity. wife and 3 daughters on it that the cell phone is implanted in their ear. 99 percent of the numbers they call, both POTS and cell are ATT, end up rolling about 600 minutes a month over.

 

you guess less then 10 percent move when they find out the costs

I couldn't agree more. All of those people that said as soon as Verizon gets the iPhone they are leaving. I'd like to see how many people really do it. I bet you it isn't many. Smiley Wink

Re: Any iPhone people leaving for Verizon?

I can't switch immediately because my wife's iPhone contract doesn't expire until June, but given AT&T's withdrawal of refurbished iPhone 4 for existing customers, the cost to switch for me then will be $0, and Verizon already provides me with Fios internet, phone and TV, so I'm sure they will have a package deal with wireless as well. Assuming the pricing is comparable for service, I'll definitely switch just because AT&T doesn't seem to care about it's existing customers anymore, and I expect Verizon's up front cost for an iPhone 4 to be the same or even less than the $300 AT&T wants me to pay. And maybe there will be an iPhone 5 by then that will run on Verizon's 4G network, too.

I am staying as I don't plan on giving up Data and Phone at the same time. But I would like the Hot Spot added to our phones.

I honestly cant wait for those who actually do jump ship...that frees up the network for me.

So then you're admitting AT&T had a substandard network to begin with and didn't care about the customer only oversaturating the network to the point of massive failure and not being able to deliver on what they promised for network capacity for the iPhone?


Thanks for verifying that.
