iPhone Heading To Verizon
Announcement expected in 2009...but...
9 to 5 Mac
proclaims that Verizon and Apple will announce in 2009 that the iPhone will be coming to Verizon. That's not particularly surprising, but keep in mind that Verizon can't technically offer the phone until 2010. AT&T and Apple's agreement was renegotiated
with the launch of the iPhone 3G, and AT&T's exclusive distribution rights were extended into 2010. Verizon iPhone availability should make many customers happy, given AT&T's network coverage (broadband or otherwise) and call quality
simply does not mach up in many of the two companies overlapping markets (upstate NY comes to mind).

Re: Shooting The Messenger
said by pnh102: It's widely known that AT&T's GSM network isn't nearly up to the standard of any EVDO network in the US. I've never, outside of this site, - ever - known anyone who's had AT&T service and been happy with it. Dropped calls, no service, terrible sounding voice quality, missing txt messages, unable to make/receive calls ... the problems are widespread. They just sent me a deal for 5 lines for $99 (I pay Verizon twice that) and I won't touch it. Their service is especially horrible here.

Ahhh... the classic "blame the carrier for the crappy phone" game.
While I think the iPhone is a mediocre phone (great web browsing though), I don't think the problems it has are all the phones fault.
