Here's an interesting insight on this topic:
What is surprising, at least to me, is that even though iPhone owners show the most loyalty, they’re not the group that’s most likely to stick with their current platform. That distinction belongs to Google Android owners, 89 percent of which expect their new smartphone to run Android too. By comparison, 85 percent of iPhone owners surveyed expect to stick with Apple for their next phone.
So maybe that doesn't mean such a win for iPhone on Verizon if those poll results mean anything.
I also read an article the other day I can't find at the moment that claimed Verizon could lose up to $450M(USD) subsidizing upgrades of existing customers to iPhones, not the potential watershed of AT&T defectors many speculate about.
I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle.
