The AT&T network has always been one of the biggest gripes about the Apple iPhone, and a recent survey confirms that over a third of iPhone owners plan to wait until the iPhone is on another carrier before they buy another one.

According to a survey by market research firm Morpace, nearly half of all iPhone owners would consider switching to a Verizon iPhone. That's no surprise given the unrest with AT&T data service and the rumors swirling around a potential Verizon iPhone.

But even more damning is the 34 percent of iPhone owners who are waiting to upgrade their iPhone until it is available on a network other than AT&T.

If that wasn't bad enough news for AT&T, the survey of all AT&T subscribers (with or without an iPhone) revealed that nearly a quarter of them are "somewhat or very likely" to ditch AT&T if Verizon does release an iPhone.

Considering the number of AT&T subscribers and iPhone owners, that's a huge number of people just waiting to jump ship.
