Ouch. Don't know what else to say. Verizon told Apple they didn't want the iPhone so Apple went to AT&T (and the mostly GSM world still thanks Jobs for that). To make up for it, Verizon -- almost 2 years later -- rushed the BlackBerry Storm to market. Still, during the iPhone 3G's second quarter, it outsold the BlackBerry Storm in the US by almost 2 to 1 (1.9 million activations on AT&T vs. 1 million in sales on Verizon).

Now BGR brings word that Verizon is finally asking former customers -- customers who left their network to go elsewhere -- if they would have stayed for the iPhone.

Think maybe Verizon really really regrets saying no to Apple back in 2006? TiPb knows you want it. And if you left for the iPhone, would Verizon getting it encourage you to switch back? Even if it meant waiting a few years for LTE?
