Verizon iPhone 'liberated'

"We have sacrificed the ability to make phone calls ... struggling with the world's most popular almost-phone. Well, our national nightmare may be over," so sayeth Jon Stewart on the night Verizon won the iPhone.

For all the disgruntled AT&T users who want to make the switch to Verizon, Lifehacker has the steps to changing your plan, without incurring any extra cost (hint: you'll have to do a little legwork on Craigslist or some other online selling site).

Mashable rates the two service providers head-to-head. The biggest difference between the two plans seems to be on the ability of AT&T phones to talk on the phone and browse on the Web simultaneously. It doesn't look like Verizon phones will be able to do that. But, as Stewart says, the upside is getting a phone that should actually make calls.
