    I doubt it. iDevice apps are connected to your Apple ID/iTunes account so it should transfer to the Verizon iPhone.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I don't see why they would say that. Apple has the iPhone on tons of carriers world-wide. They are linked to your itunes account not to the device. Only one I saw saying this was a navigation app that ATT has by the same company that makes a Verizon branded one. The ATT one charges to your cell account while the Verizon one goes via in-app purchases.

    Kind of like an email account. Just because you use another computer doesn't mean you can't access it. But it makes sense what Cer0 said. AT&T specific apps that charge to your AT&T account shouldn't work on Verizon. It should be fine, like everyone else said. Verizon is trying to be sneaky

    After re reading .........any apps on current Verizon phones will not
    transfer over.
    There is no mention of how ATT iphone apps will transfer over.

    So has anyone figured out if you'll be able to use the ver iphone wifi
    internet while talking?? Not 3G.......won't work.

    With wifi you can talk and surf. But if you go out of wifi area then you cannot do data and voice at same time.

    They are correct then that current apps that verizon offers will not transfer because it is a whole new platform. Like blackberry apps and android apps won't transfer to a iOS platform.

    yes you can use the Verizon WIFI and simultaneously use 3G.

    I have a question in return: my friends Verizon iPhone cannot and i repeat CANNOT send/receive text messages during a phone call! SERIOUSLY VERIZON!?

    oh, LOL, the question is is anyone else having this 'issue'

    That's not entirely true. Push notifications tends to default to using the Cellular connection, even if you're connected to and using wifi. This is even mentioned in documentation for iOS developers: iOS Reference Library

    The only times Push is sent via WiFi is when the cellular data connection is broken (no signal, in-call while on a EDGE/CDMA network), or WIFi is enabled while Airplane Mode is turned on.

    For most purposes, though, wifi takes preference.

    I jailbreak and have MyWi. I use 3g and distribute wifi to friends at the same time. but it would be pointless for them to both be receiving at the same time. I wonder if the iphone could somehow be made to do that though. that could be the fastest internet connection ever. No?

    I've been wondering, do VZW iPhones have visual voicemail?
