After much speculation it was announced early today that the iPhone 4g is in fact coming to Verizon. Though this is good news for the people (including me) that are fed up with AT&T’s terrible coverage which includes dropped calls there are a few factors to take in before making the jump to Verizon. First, there’s no global roaming capability which probably isn’t a big deal for most. The most important capability missing and why I will not be switching will be the lack of simultaneous voice/data on 3G. This means that you won’t be able to SMS text or use any sort of data while you are on the phone with someone. Other then that not much has changed the buttons moved down a bit due to the added CDMA antenna notches.
Pricing seems to be the same for the device, monthly plans have not been announced yet.
