You'll never regret going to Verizon. However, AT&T gets a far worse wrap than they deserve. They've really expanded their coverage significantly over the last 18 months, and they are much faster than Verizon in most markets with data. My fellow SysAdmin where I work has a work Verizon droid and a personal iPhone 3GS on AT&T and he consistently has nearly twice the 3G speed and usually better coverage. This is in the Greater Hampton Roads, VA.

Of course, up to 6 or so months ago, he was cursing AT&T, so I think they did a big rollout here not to long ago.
Still don't have ATT 3g coverage in my hometown... yet we have Tmo, VZW and Sprint coverage.

I'm actually pretty happy with Sprint for my area. Comparable speeds to VZW, better coverage than ATT locally... I really think I'm going to consider Tmo and VZW next time I make a decision.

I'm not going to lie, it's going to come down to who has the best phone when I'm eligible for a new one.
