I said it before - I use it EVERYDAY for work so I NEED it. Verizon isn't an option for me.

Only thing that makes me not go to verizon is CDMA. Such outdated crap technology. The ability to not be on a phone while using data sucks.

Always wondered about this..I am on the EVO 4G(which is a CDMA) and can use the phone & data at the same time (albeit only when I am using 4G and *NOT* 3g). Why is that? or is it because 4g uses a seperate radio/antenna than 3g?...I think the only bad thing about CDMA is when you travel out of the country considering the majority of the world uses GSM

That is because Sprint uses CDMA for voice and WIMAX for Data on their network. Verizon will support voice and data on any LTE device but since the iPhone 4 is a 3G device it will be missing out on Verizons Network.
