The wait has been long: as if a floodgate was open, iPhone users are migrating to Verizon. Larry Barrett reports.
Though only initially available on its 3G wireless network, Verizon Wireless set an all-time, first-day record for pre-orders with Apple's iPhone 4 last week, forcing the wireless carrier to momentarily shutter online orders.
