I also had the voyager when it first came out. To me it was deff verizon's best phone but imo the iPhone is way better. Any how my verizon worked every where untill i bought my new house and verizon's website said that they had coverage here. So i called and complained but they would give me a run around. "Well we are planning on building a new tower in your area." So i kept calling back and they said they were going to send a tech out to check my area, then to her surprise there was another complaint on my street. So they said well since it says we have coverage there and we stand by our word we can let you off of your contract for free (this all happened about 2yrs ago) and to me that was awesome cause. 1 i really wanted an iphone and 2 theres a at&t tower 200 yards away from my house so it worked out perfect and i actually have better signal every where i go with at&t. Plus i love being able to just switch sim cards and not having to call them every time i wanna use a different phone. I also told at&t that i got a 20% discount with verizon because of where i work but it was really only 17% so she said okay so where have you worked in the past? I told her i was in the military but now work for American water (which i was actually in the air force but no longer) so she asked me to show her proof. So i did and they gave me a 19% discount on my bill!

That has to be one of the longest sentences I've ever seen and all without capitalisation....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

yea i think they should get the iphone for verion :] that would be like the best...cuz verizon has good sevice but crappy phones...they should get the iphone 4g for verizon

Heck yeah I left Verizon to get the iPhone! I had a 20% discount at Verizon and all of my friends had Verizon service. Now, I'm paying twice the amount a month and need extra minutes, but to me it is totally worth it to swap my crappy Chocolate for the iPhone. Also, at home ATT sways between zero signal and perfect signal within a 5 foot radius. Sucks. Verizon does have the best service avaliable in my area but I can deal with a few dropped calls just to be one of the people who get stopped with the question "OMG is that an iPhone?! Can I see it?" LOL
Best move I ever made, even if it wound up being around $700 for the total switch.

95% of my friends have verizon as did i up until about beginning of October then switched to AT&T for the iPhone

I dropped Verizon for my iPhone. I, too, had a 20% discount on my Verizon line but was more than happy to make the jump to AT&T. I had hardly any issues with Verizon until a few months after I closed my account (the contract was up when I closed, made sure I had nothing left to pay, etc.) a collection agency sent me a notice for $7. Yes, they sent me to collections for $7, without even trying to contact me first. Sure, they didn't have my new number, but obviously they knew my address!

I remember when the iPhone first came out, I was so disappointed that it wasn't on Verizon because I didn't want to change service. I was stupid and got the voyager thinking that it would be this amazing phone, I was partially wrong. The voyager was a decent phone, but it paled in comparison to the iPhone, I enjoyed the keyboard on it, but everything else was just ok. I just hated the fact that I couldn't really do anything with it, I was restricted by the Brew filesystem on the phone. Anyways, I was nervous at first when I decided to pay the termination fee and move to AT&T to get the iPhone, obviously not because of the iPhone, but because of the service. I heard good and bad things about AT&T, and I have to say that its been great. Sure I've had a few issues with 3G, but for the most part it's been better than Verizon.
I'd also like to add that AT&T's customer service has been so much better than Verizon's. Every time I've called them with a problem or to change my minutes they've been nothing but amazing. The one time the lady simply gave me 200 extra minutes because I was calling to up my minutes because I was going to run over, Verizon never did that for me. The other thing that pissed me off about Verizon, was that I had to call every month because they would always charge me the $2 a MB even though I wasn't using the internet, it annoyed me because they never gave me the option of turning off data completely. I know that AT&T is similar, but with the iPhone you get unlimited data anyways so it doesn't even matter anymore.
Anyways, the only way I would move back to Verizon is if the iPhone was available with them, simply because most of my friends and family use Verizon and I'll be able to get away with a lower amount of minutes.

I would not go back on a CDMA network if someone paid me.(now that I've discovered the freedoms of a GSM network)

It is also fact that Apple talked with Verizon about the iPhone, but they couldn't reach a deal. Here is one of the article that even has quotes by Verizon's VP:
Verizon passed up Apple iPhone deal
