Verizon IPhone vs ATT IPhone

Is anyone a former ATT Iphone holder who switched to VZW? I would love a comparison. I was with VZW, went to ATT for the IPhone and am now thinking of switching back. Thanks!

I'm carrying them BOTH right now and have been for a couple days.

So far, the ONLY advantage ATT has is the talk-and-surf feature. Other than that, my side-by-side testing, in the real world and not comparing numbers on a bench....THAT IS THE ONLY advantage ATT has.

People look at me funny because I'll be launching apps/etc at the same time (Facebook, Weather Channel, App Store, USA Today....), and, on average....the VZW iPhone is faster/better.

Occasionally, the ATT iPhone will load a random page faster, but seat-of-the-pants...daily ownership....I'll finish porting ALL my lines over to VZW this week.

I'm like you about hating ATT. I just switched too. The battery seems to drain faster and I miss the surf and talk feature, but Verizon's cell service is so much better.

USA Today = VZW
Weather Channel = VZW
Facebook = VZW
Cnet = VZW
Wavy (local news app) = VZW

And we're NOT talking some sort of close as far as times go....it is shockingly faster (VZW).

EVERY single iPhone user I have had at my desk has been completely and totaly blown away.

Talk-and-Surf is a GREAT feature.....but if you can't do one, or the other...or EITHER.....what good is it?

On paper, the ATT iPhone and ATT might be fa...

I switched to AT&T when the iphone 4G came out. Made a trip from Indiana to Texas, and there were stretches of an hour and a half or more that I could not make or receive calls. Made same trip after going back to VZW and had no call problems. Some pics sent to me while on AT&T were never received.

But....if your ATT iPhone HAD worked...you would have been able to talk AND surf at the same time!!

Yes....sarcasm. Smile

VZW iPhone is the BEST of both worlds...its the cake, and we get to eat it too!!!
