    Default T-mobile... leave to Verizon? Wait for iPhone 5?
    I have 2 iphones on T-mobiles network. Still under contract but willing to pay to go over to Verizon... but should I go right away, or wait til the iPhone 5 comes out? When it does, will it be for just AT&T or Verizon too?

    Thoughts? Comments?

    I just posted a thread on how Verizon is going to have unlimited data for the iPhone but only for a limited time.

    If you want unlimited data, you'd better make the jump as soon as it drops or you'll fall victim to their undetermined date tier data systems. ($30 for 2gb or something of that nature)

    My opinion? You could easily make back the money your T-Mobile accounts are worth. The thing is, if you have iPhones, why are you on a contract? Even More + plans give you more features for your money and it's not like a T-Mobile carrier subsidized you for the iPhones anyway.

    I upgraded 1 phone on the line and ended up selling it to buy an iphone for my wife, and we also called to complain about pricing so we got a cheaper rate, but it tacked on 2 years on our contract. I'm not going to AT&T, so T-mobile was ideal... but now that Verizon has the iphone, that changes everything! I can sell both our phones and make up the price of canceling our account, so that's not a big deal. I just don't want to get the 4 and then the 5 comes out a few months later!

    The 5 will come out this June/July. I'm pretty sure we all know that.

    Despite what some of my friends believe, there is no way that Apple is abandoning GSM (and by extension AT&T here in the US). It's used too widely across the world. It is very likely that the next iPhone will have the new Qualcomm chipset that has both CDMA and GSM processors on a single chip.

    My opinion: Unless you absolutely need an iPhone 4 (or unlimited data) right now, wait. If for no other reason than the fact that the iPhone 4 will go down in price when the iPhone 5 comes out this summer. You will be able to choose between the 2 largest carriers in the US, and competition is definitely a good thing for the consumer.
