It SURE seems that way. Years later and Verizon are still bitches about the iPhone. "Oh.. iPhone?.. NO but heres Android and Google ****." LAME. But unfortunetly AT&T service sucks and its rates are high with a $30 required data plan. If iPhone does roll over to Verizon and there is still a $30 data fee.. I will NEVER buy an iPhone. In that case I'll wait til iPod Touches drop in price (prob will NEVER happen). I know this is a sour post.. but how many others (who don't have money to spend like those rich boys waiting in line for the iPad with cash on launch day) are in the same predicament? Unless something changes looks like I'll be owning a Motorolla or LG phone for the rest of my life.
