Survey: A Quarter of iPhone Users Would Dump AT&T for Verizon

Sep 21, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Some 23% of Apple iPhone users say they will switch from AT&T to Verizon when the carrier’s exclusive relationship with Apple ends early in 2011, TGDaily reports.

Citing Credit Suisse, the story says as many as 1.4 million AT&T customers — or nearly a quarter — will defect when they get the chance, if the Verizon iPhone is launched, as Credit Suisse expects, on Feb. 15, 2011.

Of those locked into contracts, 3% said they’d be prepared to break them, the story says.

Research from Morpace last month also found that 23 percent of AT&T customers were likely to buy an iPhone with Verizon.

"Partly as a result of this, says Credit Suisse, AT&T will only just maintain its level of subscriptions next year. Verizon’s, however, will shoot up. Credit Suisse reckons numbers are likely to double, with four million new subscribers next year," the story says.


  1. That 23% may be disappointed. Much of AT&T’s issues are caused by the tremendous amount of data used by iPhone owners. That same issue will likely occur at Verizon if there is a huge number of iPhone subscribers in a short time frame.

  2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  3. Thanks.
