MacRumors reports today on the results of a new survey from ChangeWave Research that reveals that 26 percent of AT&Ts iPhone customers planned to leave AT&T and sign up with Verizon once it was confirmed that Verizon was getting the iPhone. Although most AT&T iPhone customers are firmly locked into long-term contracts, ChangeWave found that many are still planning to leave AT&T for Verizon anyway, with 41 percent of those who say they plan to move to Verizon saying that theyll make the move within the first three months of Verizon getting the iPhone, and a further 31 percent saying they will hop over to Verizon within the year.
The respondents polled were professionals and early-adopters, so clearly a tech-savvy sample. Although the survey was actually carried out at the end of December, before Verizon had officially confirmed that it would be getting the iPhone, by that point it was looking extremely likely that a Verizon iPhone was on the way.
According to MacRumors, ChangeWave has also been tracking reports of dropped calls on the major carriers, finding that although AT&Ts dropped call rate fell to 4.7 percent in December from 6 percent in September, it was still way below Verizons 1.7 percent.
