File this one under the "not a surprise" category, but a Morgan Stanley Research survey has uncovered that nearly 17 percent of Verizon's customers show interest in the iPhone and would probably switch if the device finally came to Big Red. This is more interest than AT&T's customers have in the next iPhone, which stands at about 14.6 percent of their customer base. Katy Huberty, a Morgan Stanley analyst, believes that if the interested 17 percent on Verizon were to switch to an iPhone, this would mean around seven or eight million more iPhones sold every year. We know that Steve Jobs and Apple love money, so we're sure that they would like to bring the iPhone to Verizon as soon as possible.
In the same report, Huberty goes on to say that she believes that when Verizon finally does get the iPhone, AT&T won't lose as many customers as most of us think since most are locked into family contracts which would be extremely expensive to break. Would any of you AT&T customers switch to Verizon if they got the iPhone at some point? Tell us your thoughts!
