please get your facts straight. Verizon never offered 18 month upgrades. Some customers used to qualify for an upgrade after 12 months. Going forward, unless there is a special promotion, you are right it will be 20 months into a 2 year contract to get an upgrade. As for world capability, there are other countries that use CDMA, south and central America, the Caribbean, and China. Plus Verizon offers a global travel program with free rental of a GSM capable phone.
As for simultaneous voice and data, thats such a two sided coin. It seems like iPhone users on ATT got used to finding wifi hotspots anyway, since there were so many problems with the data network. VZW smartphones allow voice on the cell network with simultaneous data over wifi, so its really not that big a deal. At least the calls won't drop.
And as for data throttling, thats a very rare user who will have so much data traffic on their phone that they would ever see that happen. I usually use over 3 gbs each month on my phone and I've never had my speed affected. And, if given the choice between throttled speed or overage charges for exceeding a 2gb plan, I'd prefer not to pay overages.
