Why I’m excited about a Verizon iPhone and I’m not even their customer

When the Verizon iPhone 4 was announced last week in New York City, I was excited. Honestly more excited than I thought I would be. Even more honestly I didn’t even think I would be excited. You see, I’m an AT&T customer. I switched over from T-Mobile in 2008 simply so that I could have the [...]
