    Yeah me too. I have Verizon and ATT contracts because of where I live and where I have to use cell phones. It's hard to focus on a Verizon upgrade when all I wanna do is play with the iPhone.

    I shopped the other day in my ATT coverage area, at a supermarket I don't usually use just because I wanted to flaunt my iPhone email capability on the way home, doh! Now I still have four coupons for catfood that will expire unused unless I drive into the "Verizon zone" sometime this week.

    I'm also eligible for a Verizon upgrade now; I was thinking about it the other day. I had been leaning towards a Blackberry, that red Pearl one? But that was before my iPhone made me think I don't like smartphones with hardware keyboards any more. And, I don't really need a Verizon phone for other than simple phone calls. So I'm likely to go with what's nearly free and not too ugly and be done with it. But I just like to look anyway, I guess! And the look of the red Blackberry still intrigues me.

    If that's true (which I'm not sure if it is but there's no reason it couldn't be) then I'd recommend getting a phone on eBay and then if a new phone comes out to get it with the "New Every 2" deal. If you don't like any of the new phones then you still have a "new" phone plus you now have no contract with VZW.

    If you want something iPhone like you might want to wait for Verizon to launch the LG Voyager next month(?).

    It has a touch screen and flips open like the enV for a full QWERTY keyboard. I'm pretty confident the software won't match the iPhone, but it will approximate the functionality. Also VZW data plans are pretty expensive, I'd guess that a 450 min plan with unlimited email/internet will run you $79.99 pre tax.

    I use the the KRZR on VZW and after getting used to the software I'm reasonably happy with it (waiting for the 3G iPhone). It is a good deal smaller than the RAZR2 which is nice but the postage stamp external display is a pain.
