Anyone here have an iPhone with Verizon?

I've been with AT&T forever and with the iPhone 5, I was thinking of switching over to Verizon. Other than not being able to use the internet while on the call, are there any other drawbacks to going with Verizon?

Thanks!
All I can say is I love mine.
I agree. Love my iPhone (on Verizon). I had sprint before I switched to Verizon and got this phone, service was spotty in my area. My DH user to have to stand by the bedroom closet to make a phone call because of the bad reception. We have no issues with Verizon, reception is much better and no one has to stand in the closet to make phone calls.

I've been with Verizon for over 10 years, so I can't compare the iPhone on AT&T to what I have. But I believe not being able to use the Internet while on the phone is the only thing.

I have Verizon now for 6 years--They have a stupid shared plan now.....compare plans and what you get for your money.... I like their customer service.
I've been with Verizon for just over 10 years as well. They have wonderful service as no matter where I am I have a strong signal. Their new shared plan works for my family as we all seem plugged in, though their rates have definitely outpaced others for service. The iPod has worked well for me through them, much more so then other friends whom have AT&T.
I do! I had AT&T probably 8 years ago, and hated them. Their customer service was terrible and their reception was crap. Love Verizon, I can use my phone everywhere. Since I just recently got an iPhone, I've never had the luxury of using internet while on a call (not sure I'd be capable, anyway), so I don't know what I'm missing. I feel like I so rarely get phone calls these days, it doesn't matter that much.

While I don't have an iPhone I did want to chime in and say so far I've had no complaints with Verizon since we switched several months ago. My husband had Sprint and it was just horrible, he never had coverage! Now we're constantly amazed at all the places we're able to use internet and phone while we're out that previously would barely make a phone call with Sprint. I had a Virgin mobile pay-as-you-go type phone so I fully expected my internet not to work well, so anything would have been an upgrade for me. Totally loving having a smart phone.

After I calculated it, it's much more cost effective to go with AT&T, based on how much data I want. The "Share Everything" plan would be a rip-off for me... But it might not be for you.

Oh for cripes sake! I just looked at the Verizon website. I either have to choose the "share everything plan," or go the prepaid route? Those are my only two friggin' choices? I don't want to share anything. I have no other devices to share with. I want an iPhone to makes calls, listen to music, check emails, Curltalk, and text.

So let's say I play along with their stupid share everything plan and I choose the most basic plan below. When I scroll down, the monthly charge comes to $80, not including tax. I keep looking to see where the other $40 is coming from, but it's not obvious to me right now.

If you're going to have a smart phone, you're going to want to have Verizon. 3G and 4G coverage is the best with Verizon. Unlimited data is going away with every service provider. And the way I look at it, there's no point in having a data plan if you aren't going to be able to use it in the most effective way, which you will with Verizon vs any other provider because of the coverage you get. Your best bet is going to be actually going into a Verizon store. You'd be surprised at how theyve almost been able to tailor our plan so it's the most cost effective for us to use. They can't really do that online.

You can go on to the Apple store and compare plans.

Thanks. I just got off the phone with Verizon. It would run me about $100/mo including taxes and surcharges, for the most basic plan (which includes 1GB data with unlimited texting).

I'm going to stick with AT&T. For about $4 more, I can get 3GB data ($30) and unlimited texting ($20). There's also the added benefit of being able to give my son my 3GS and adding a second line at some point. I couldn't do that with Verizon, since it's an AT&T iPhone.

Regardless, I have some time to think about all of this since I won't be rushing out to buy the iPhone 5. The pre-ordered price will be based on the retail price, and not the contract price. The guy at AT&T had me laughing when he said, "for the retail price of $600 that phone better go out, wash my car and massage my feet. Heck, I want it to cuddle with me for that price."

In fact, it talks about preordering and then gives the link to the look-up tool. Essentially that's saying that only existing iPhone users who are in the early part of their contract can preorder, right?

He also wouldn't give me any pricing info, saying they weren't given that information. I highly doubt people would pre-order something they don't know the price of.
Okay, this is even weirder. I just rechecked mine and now it doesn't list the iPhone 5 anymore.

I think the Apple site is being wonky. A friend in NZ asked me to get him the 5 because it's cheaper here then there. I was checking prices, shut the site then went back, now I can't get into the pre-order page.

I got an email today from Apple telling me to pre-order my iPhone for as low as $199. The AT&T guy must have been wrong, which really doesn't surprise me. The AT&T store employees are one of the reasons I have an iPhone--I can deal with Apple only and never need to talk to AT&T unless there's something wrong with my bill.
