Image the bandwidth that would free up. Loosing 6 million maybe the best thing for AT&T

Why are people so under educated when it comes to the obvious??? Verizon = EVDO the iPhone = GSM the parts dnt fit.. I hate AT&T but who cares... If u like the iPhone u go with who carries it and trust me buddy... Ur verzion will NEVER carry the iPhone lol simply because evdo is in the past... And think about all the bashing commerical there's a map for that... That's just as much aimed at AT&T as it is Apples iPhone... In a world of dnt Driod can.... Come on sjobs wnt ever look like a fool and join with a company that doesn't respect competition!!

I'm going to LMFAO when everybody moves to Verizon and their network sucks to shit. Then everybody will be bitching about Verizon and we can sit back and laugh at your dumb asses for the next two years of your contrack.

...ROFL...yeah, like will ever happen, EVDO is dead and the future on the Verizon is as good as Sprint, closed standards only good in the US and that my friends is why Mapple will say no to Verizon or Sprint, reason why Bellus here in Canada moved from EVDO, because there is no future on that!

I doubt it'll happen. Every year it's the same rumor. Last year the evidence was ppiling up to the very day of the event where verizon supposedly had office members in a large meeting for a big announcement. Nothing happened. shocker. Anyhow yes it does have better coverage but 2 things worry me. 1. How will that coverage hold up if it gets hammered by people switching and/or new subscribers. It's what happened to at&t. 2. simultaneous voice and data is huge. Verizon does not have that. I'll stick with att. If verizon did get it then att service should increase dramatically.

Totally agree with you: Simultaneous voice+data is priceless. Technology based on the majority of standards is the right path (and logical) to follow. In this particular case, the vast majority of mobile companies in the world (set aside the US) are using GSM as a base standard, not CDMA/EVDO. As long as they can deliver any experience that surpasses the one offered until today, it can roam to any network. For the time being, no carrier anywhere was 100% ready for something NONE had before. The iPhone was a new breed on its own, and no one had the certainty of how big the impact on any network would be. There goes my 2.

How do you find out if Verizon has 3G coverage in your area. Their data Maps dont say much.

verizon effing ROCKS! i always hated on my verizon friends who gets signal in the basement... if you're serious about your service, i think it's worth it to pay the fee and switch over.

Won't happen
