Sadly no. AT&T and Verizon use two different, incompatible cellular network hardware types. AT&T uses GSM while Verizon uses CDMA. That the iPhone finally came to Verizon was such big news in major part because it was the first time Apple created an iPhone for a CDMA network. It is also, consequentially, the first time that an iPhone is available on Verizon. It was technically impossible to have the iPhone on Verizon when only the GSM iPhone was around.

Dude, the iPhone just came out for Verizon. Funny thing though is that I was waiting for that day to happen, but got tired of waiting and decided to get a Moto Droid X, and now I have no desire to get an iPhone. Just throwin that out there. I've found that Android > Apple iOS, but I mean the choice is yours.

Nope, although both carries have the iphone now they still use different technology for their phones, at&t uses GSM & verizon uses cdma.
