“Verizon saw negative so-called porting rates — meaning more Verizon customers were switching to AT&T than vice versa. But as the month progressed, Verizon said it has seen a shift back to what it calls normal switching rates.”
Personally, I never considered switching from Verizon to AT&T for the iPhone… right away. My contract doesn’t end until next year, but when it does all bets are off. That kind of slow drain might not show up on the porting rates like the mania of early adopters willing to pay early termiation fees has (to get out of their Verizon contract), but I’ll bet I’m not the only one thinking about switching when my contract is up. Verizon best be on their best behavior between now and then.
