Verizon iPhones with Fewer Dropped Calls

Changewave has released information on surveys they've performed since the release of the Verizon iPhone 4. The Verizon iPhone 4 was finally launched in February after nearly 4 years of AT&T exclusivity in the U.S. AT&T was frequently criticized for poor reception and call service. Changewave's survey found that new Verizon iPhone users are indeed experiencing fewer dropped calls than their AT&T counterparts:

The percentage of dropped calls for Verizon and AT&T correspond to non-iPhone users on the same networks. Changewave notes Verizon is still in the early stages of its iPhone 4 offerings and that additional network pressures could affect their systems. In particular, it seems that future iPhone buyers seem to be planning on buying from Verizon over AT&T:

Despite the difference in dropped call rates, iPhone 4 satisfaction rates between existing Verizon and AT&T users are virtually identical with 82% vs 80% being very satisfied with their smart phone. Verizon revealed that the iPhone 4 launch has been their fastest selling launch in history, though neither Apple nor Verizon has released any breakdown in their sales numbers.
