Remember. It's Verizon.
Remember that show "The Facts of Life" ? The theme song had the catchy phrase...

You take the good, the take the bad, and there you have the facts of life...

VzW does have the best 3G/4G network. Its engineered to the T. But with that comes a price. Higher service costs, more conservative in handset deployment. Consistent customer experience is more important to them than other carriers. Maybe the N3 is a week later who knows. But you can bet the N3 on VzW will be more more solid than on ANY other network.

And not that it matters, but working for a telecom infrastructure company that is 50% of the Vzw network, I can say I've not put in bug fixes for any specific handsets recently, save for Apple.
