I can see where your concerns are but one thing your doing as well is making consumers sound like sheep. Forums like phonescoop help keep consumers informed on what there buying and VZW is coming out with clear disclosure on what there selling and what your buying.

Now if you go into a VZW store not knowing what your buying or getting into you as a consumer then you need to bear some of the burden for getting "taken" buy a good sales person.

Im not advocating that Sales reps should be unethical but coming in armed with as much knowledge on a product is the best way to overcome any issues.

The other thing that I noticed is how more RELAXED VZW is at putting out phones with less and less preloaded VZW apps. The only preloaded app that the Iphone is coming with is usage monitoring and Backup Assistance. A few years ago this would have been unheard of. The Droid really helped break ground on this because prior to that most phones were pretty much restricted to the VZW UI.

I know that this version of the I Phone has been on the market for a while but the demand for an I phone with VZW has been overwhelming. Why wouldnt a company in a position to get a product that there customers want pass up the chance to get it and sell it to there customers? Plus at this point in time 4G VZW networks arent in enough markets for it to warrant a rush to market with a 4G IPhone. When the I phone 5 comes out (or whatever there gonna call it) 4G will be in a lot more markets and VZW will already be in a position to handle it.

The Motorola Bionic looks like its going to be a better phone IMO and it looks like its going to be great competition for anyting Apple comes up with...but the best thing about the situation is that VZW wont have to sell against it. The only people that will be at a disadvantage will be T Mobile and Sprint.
