Verizon iPhone: The phone to buy when all else fails?

After more than three years since AT&T got the iPhone, Verizon started carrying the Apple device on Thursday. For some, a Verizon iPhone is a dream come true. But some new iPhone owners admit that this was a purchase of last resort.

Customers in Boca Raton, Fla., purchase the iPhone 4 shortly after the phone went on sale with the Verizon Wireless network February 10, 2011. Verizon Wireless began selling the Apple iPhone at long last on Thursday, ending AT&T's more than three-year stranglehold on the device in the US.
