I was going to switch but my unlimited data plan, cheaper pricing (my corp. discount is not great at all with AT&T). Also the fact that my last AT&T service with them was abysmal to say the least so it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

i breifly considered switching, until i did the math that even if i decided to give up my unlimited data (which would be stupid imo) i would still be paying more per month on ATT then i do currently on verizon for the same plan/features.
You also have to consider that the better your phone is, the more you will do on it and therefore the more data you will need.
Nope, unlimited data and lower monthly bills still trumps a wp, not matter how nice it may be.
I figure i've waited this long, waiting a few more months wont kill me. Then I will have the choice between iphone 5, BB10, about 3000 new android phones, and maybe just maybe a windows phone or 2 on verizon.

No I won't switch. I have a great plan and the service is good where I'm at. Also, while I enjoy my trophy, I can't see switching carriers for a WP at this point. Maybe in a year I will feel different, but not right now.

I'm switching. Whenver my Lumia comes in. I tested the trophy out a few weeks ago and it was just to small for me and the video and speakers on it sucked. Other than that, the OS is really fluid. The screen on my rezound is 4.3. I think 4.0 is the smallest screen i'll ever get. If the video was better on the trophy I might've stayed, but for a small screen to have ugly pixelation, i wasn't having it. ATT is pretty good around my way, not as good as verizon, but I'll live. I'm tired of android and tired of Verizon stifling the push of ICS as well as other prospective additions...like more windows phones. Plus I like ATT's back up of 4G when LTE isn't working. better than 3G.

I switched! I am paying the exact same price on AT&T. The only downside is I lost my unlimited data, but when I analyzed my usage, I barely average 1GB a month. I thought I was a heavy data user, but I guess not. I guess I never realized how much I actually use WiFi. The big thing for me was coverage, but I have talked to several people in my area that have AT&T and they didn't have any problems. So I guess the things to consider are if you really need unlimited data, and whether or not AT&T has good coverage in your area.

i left verizon after being with them for over a decade for att when i bought my OG focus and i haven't regretted it yet.
while i really liked not having to worry about data caps when i had my unlim, i have yet to cross over 2GB of data in a month (i'm usually around 1GB) so while the idea of a cap bothers me, i don't really think about it very often.
i can only imagine it will get better once i get on their underutilized LTE network tomorrow! :D

So moving from unlimited data to 3 GB is not going to phase me one bit, and I bet a lot of users are in my same boat.

Leaving my unlimited data plan on Verizon.. taking 2 other lines with me as well. Unlike most here, I am a heavy data user... sometimes. Most I've used is 13gb but that was with heavy tethering. Boss was on vacation and we watched 3 seasons of breaking bad and all of game of thrones season 1 that month on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 lol.
Anyway most normal months though I use somewhere between 2-4 gb so I should be fine with my 5gb plan. I just won't be able to tether for things like netflix or hbo go anymore but I rarely have time for that these days anyway. I still come out cheaper per month because the rest of the family plan is better.

I jumped ship since my company pays for phone and plan. Giving my wife my Trophy so that I can move her from the Android world. She really wants my phone but in DC Verizon is the only carrier that has service in the metro. Need that for when she comes home at night. Although my ATT rep said by the end of the year ATT will be in the metro. By then, hopefully, there is a pink Nokia phone for her.

I keep going back and forth on this. Would love to make the jump, but on the other hand there need to be a few of us WP fans left on Verizon to show Noka the love *when* they launch.
As long as I can curb my obsession I may try to stick it out, but if I do wait and there is not a Nokia Apollo phone on VZW in conjunction with (or soon after) the launch of Windows 8 I will definitely make the jump to AT&T.

For me there are a couple of way's I am looking at this. First I am holding out until Q4 to see what WP8 looks like and the offerings from both Verizon & AT&T. Next if Verizon is going to offer a high end WP8 Nokia device in Q4 then I will stay. Finally if I see nothing coming to the US in Q4 then I will look at importing a phone and jumping to AT&T.
The Lumina 900 is a sweet device, but given the big benefits of WP8 and the hardware plans I feel its best to pick up a Trophy off of eBay and wait 6 months (painful as that is).

Verizon is getting a new Windows Phone this summer. Not a Nokia though because of the whole "no data" thing. I would say more but I don't wanna risk it. Also, all if the VZW bloatware can be uninstalled from Windows Phones and iPhones. Its Androids that are locked up.
