There has been quite a lot of talk about the upcoming iPhone 5 recently and although a lot of it has been about possible features, specs and design, there has also been talk about the networks. For example, we brought you an article a few days ago, which looked at the potential of the Verizon iPhone 5.

According to beatweek.com, not only will the Verizon iPhone 5’s release be the very first time that Verizon customers will be able to pick up a new generation iPhone from day one, but it will also be the first time that AT&T iPhone customers can jump to Verizon without having to replace their existing handset.

For iPhone customers on AT&T, moving over to Verizon for the iPhone 5 would be exactly the same hardware transition as staying with their existing network for the much-awaited handset. The beatweek.com article has pointed out a few factors that people should consider when deciding between AT&T and Verizon.

The first of course is the network in question. Both Verizon and AT&T customers would argue with each other all day about which network is the best. The bottom line really is which carrier is going to have the best signal, and the least amount of dead spots at home, work or favorite locations.

Another interesting factor is pricing. Both Verizon and AT&T are currently charging iPhone 4 users around the same amount each month for their plans and features, with some variations along the way. However, with the two carriers fighting for iPhone users’ affections, this could all change with the iPhone 5.

Which carrier will you be going to for the iPhone 5, Verizon or AT&T?
