I've been hanging on to my iPhone 3GS with AT&T in anticipation of the new iPhone. I'm thrilled that it's look promising for a new iPhone for me next month. I live in upstate NY and we camp a lot up in the Adirondacks and Verizon has a tower up there and AT&T does not. This made me want to switch carriers. I *almost* went to Verizon with the iPhone 4, but thought it silly to buy a phone that would surely soon be outdated (expected a new phone in summer, but early fall isn't too far off.) My husband gets a lot of dropped calls and bad reception on his iPhone 3GS (and all previous AT&T phones) at work too - another reason we were thinking of switching. On the plus side, we enjoy being able to talk on the phone while surfing, which only AT&T offers, not Verizon. That isn't expected to change, correct? Although this is a nice perk of AT&T, it's not critical in my book. I have had AT&T my entire cellphone life (well previously it was Cingular). I have never used Verizon, so I'm a bit leary to leave. How much better is the reception really going to be? Is it worth the extra cost (plan costs are higher than what we pay at AT&T). I willingly took the tiered data plan at AT&T, wish I didn't but such is life. So that isn't a factor really - will have to do a tiered plan at either company. Here's the worst part, which I didn't think through until just recently - I had preordered my iPhone 3GS and that was the BEST way to get it. I wouldn't be able to preorder this new phone though Verizon, because I'm not a current customer, however, I would be able to preorder through AT&T. I did wonder if I went and became a VZ customer and purchased the iPhone 4s this month, would they let me pre-order the new iPhones and trade in my 4s when they arrived? I wonder if that is an option. I had a new iPhone 3 and because I just "just" purchased it when the iPhone 3GS came out, I was able to trade them. I don't know what to do! Any feedback is welcome. Thank you.
