Switching from AT&T to Verizon When iPhone 5 Arrives...

Wondering how many iPhone users on AT&T are going to be switching to Verizon once the iPhone 5 (or 'The New iPhone') arrives in September 2012?    Here are the Top 10 Reasons to Switch from AT&T to Verizon when the iPhone 5 is released:

#10 Verizon LTE Network HUGE compared to AT&T 4G LTE

#9 AT&T tried to confuse everyone by calling their HSPA+ network 4G, when it really isn't.

#8 AT&T successfully got Apple to label the iPhone 4S as "4G" after the last update when it really isn't

#7 AT&T is going to NOT include FaceTime over Cellular for all their customers (Hint: FCC might consider this illegal and clamp down)

#6 AT&T voice quality sucks.  Really tired of dropped calls.

#5 Simultaneous voice/data will be possible with 4G LTE iPhone, right not only AT&T iPhone 3G/4/4S can claim this (Hint, you will need to be in a 4G LTE area for this to work, as data goes over 700 mhz and voice over 800/1900).

#4 Stuck with AT&T years ago when they were the exclusive one

#3 Even Verizon iPhone can do international roaming - used to be only AT&T GSM phones would only support this.

#2 AT&T is usually first to charge more for features (can you say tethering)

And the #1 Reason (worth repeating):  Verizon LTE Network HUGE compared to AT&T 4G LTE
