I started thsi thread as I asked for advise in many threads and just wanted others to now I got an iPhone. HEre is a good idea if you are unsure (as I was) of AT&T reception. I got an iPhone with a new number. I had 30 days in which to return it if it did not work. I kept my verizon account. Then I made all sorts of tests comparing the phones. I found reception as good or better with the iPhone so THEN I went back to the AT&T store to close out my VErizon account by having the VErizon number ported to the iPhone and getting rid of the temporary number I had for a day.
