Verizon To Offer iPhone 4

That being said, I'm not Apple's biggest fan. I don't own any Apple devices, and I've done my best to convince people to choose their carrier first, and device second. I understand that some people are "Mac" people, and for them having an iPhone may be a good choice. I work for a VZW retailer, so I naturally want as many happy VZW customers as possible, and now those Mac people can have the device they want on our network.
The big difference here is that AT&T got "one-trick pony" syndrome. It got to the point where the only reason to have AT&T was to have an iPhone. For some people that was a good enough reason, for some people it wasn't. It all depends on your coverage, your past experience with the carrier, etc. I think there will still be lots of VZW customers who choose VZW service for a reason, and will choose to use the device that fits them best, either an entry level texting phone, or a droid or blackberry, or maybe an iPhone. We hope that people who really love iOS will now take advantage of the chance to use the device they love on VZW.
