    I agree, a Verizon iPhone would mean the DROID line would become very insignificant to evening but geeks.

    FIRST

    And I guess its just that some carriers are more reliable then AT&T

    Yeah, AT&T is great and all, but not the best.

    When I used the web on a Android phone it just sucked. I really hated browsing the web on it. The iPhone seems like a mini computer.

    well that's because android is opensource and more avaliable to more customers through different carriers.

    if apple wants to catch up, they better start looking beyond the scope of AT&T and possibly into Verizon...

    EDIT:
    wow i'm now an aficionado

    ^DONT YOU EVEN GO THERE^

    Verizon charges you for everything.

    If you break your phone (someone i know took a swim with his) they charge you $10 just because you broke it...

    I would love to see a chart of the same sort, but of the UK market share due to the iPhone being available on ALL major networks.

    • O2~Best for Wi-Fi Hotspots, Unlimited Texts
    • Orange~Best for tethering plans and long-term value
    • Tesco~Best for short contracts, low cost of ownership
    • Three~Best for low upfront costs, call- and text-intensive contracts
    • Vodafone~Best for roaming data


    Then again non of the Droids are available in the UK

    I'd disagree there. ATT and Verizon are extremely simlar, except for tiered data plans. Which I hate. So I'm all Verizon on this one. Why? Because $30 divided by infinite MBs equals a kick-ass deal.
