Myself, I'd stick with AT&T for now...for one thing, there's no simultaneous phone/data use available on the Verizon iPhone (not possible on the CDMA network). And, Verizon's 3G is allegedly slower than AT&T's ( http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/01/11/5813972-five-reasons-not-to-buy-the-verizon-iphone-yet ).

All I can say is "Welcome!", and "Goodbye, Android!".
