Great news for anyone who wants one that can't use AT&T.
Will be interesting to see what happens to AT&T's subscriber base as Verizon now has the best smartphones on offer across its Android and iPhone offerings.

AT&T has sat on the iPhone and done fuck all so far with Android although they do offer WP7.

I read on on a few sites that alot of ATT subscribers will leave because Verizon's coverage is better and Verizon is getting Windows phones this year.

I loved my Droid but I got a 32 gig iPod touch 4th gen and the best thing about the iPod is the games. So many better games but other then that I do prefer Android.

Th only 2 big disadvantages to the Verizon iPhone is its lack of GSM compatibility meaning it won't work in many countries overseas if you're a traveller (the whole of Europe uses GSM, not CDMA for example) and the lack of voice + data transmission at the same time (a feature I've never used, despite being able to).

Other than that, actually having some signal to do things with is the biggest plus for going for the Verizon iPhone. The AT&T coverage map looks utter shit compared to Verizon's.

Sounds like a good app Mid. How did you get on the waiting list already Omni? I thought you had to wait till the 3rd to order?
