While some people are delighted to be able to now get an iPhone from Verizon, the superficial similarities between iPhones from Verizon and AT&T obscure some important ‘under the hood’ differences, and in most respects, the AT&T iPhone proves to be better than the Verizon version.
Furthermore, a new iPhone 5 (or whatever it will be called) is expected to be released in about June – certainly for AT&T, possibly for Verizon too.
It is thought the new iPhone 5 will have some significant enhancements over the iPhone 4 (which was released in June last year), and so it might be best to wait until June rather than to rush into buying a Verizon iPhone in February (complete with two year contract) that will have a model life of perhaps only four months before being superseded.
There is also the possibility of iPhones appearing for Sprint and MetroPCS too.
