Verizon saw slower iPhone sales than expected?
Leaked sales data from BGR claim that iPhone 4 sales on Verizon are actually slower than anticipated.

BGR posted sales totals from five Apple brick-and-mortar stores including two "very, very prominent" ones, following the first five days of the smartphone's launch on the carrier.

While there was huge hype for the launch, there were no lines (or small ones) outside of Apple stores on launch day, a stark difference from the phone's launch on AT&T, where eager buyers waited overnight on the street to get the device on the first day.

The full data (sales for Verizon, sales for AT&T, same store):

Thursday: Verizon = 909, AT&T = 539
Friday: Verizon = 916, AT&T = 680
Saturday: Verizon = 660, AT&T = 471
Sunday: Verizon = 796, AT&T = 701
Monday: Verizon = 711, AT&T = 618

Pre-orders of the smartphone were large, however, coming to 550,000 units.

Finally, the site says 30 percent of Verizon iPhone buyers came from Android, 25 percent from BlackBerry and 14 percent from the AT&T iPhone.

    No kidding!

    Verizon is a jagoff, jerkoff jackass arrogant company that thought they'd sell the Iphone to 30 percent of their customers.

    I hate Verizon with a passion and may that company fold and rot in hades for all their shadiness and overpricing.

    Its the only option out here, but all around data plans are horrible, it should be 15$ per 1GB of data/voice/text but no they want their lil monopoly with the 3 other big companies...

    Pretty much like everyone said, Verizon's prices are no better than AT&T so really there's no difference.

    One way they could be more competitive is to lower the price of their unlimited texting option by $5 or $10. Should be pretty easy since texting cost phone companies almost nothing anyway. I don't know why AT&T and Verizon are so stingy with text messaging.

    Hey and maybe the slow sales are due to the fact that Apple releases a new iPhone every June. That's what I'm waiting on; see what new features the iPhone5 will. I'd hate to buy one now for it to be outdated in four months....let's try to get it to at least 6 months before it becomes an antique lol.

    ^^Exactly right. Verizon overstated how dumb its consumer base is. *MOST* people know by now that a new iPhone comes out every summer and all those AT&T subscribers with 2-year contracts that still have the iPhone 3GS were not gonna jump ship when they have 4 months left on their contract and the iPhone 5 coming up...
