I've been researching that. That doesnt work on verizon does it?
No, there is no CDMA version. Regardless of LTE works or was blocked in the new update. It didn't work on Verizon before and it won't work on Verizon after.
As far as Verizon pre-paid and LTE, as far as I understand, you can activate any phone you want, but it's only going to work on 3G. I'd assume they won't even give you the SIM needed for LTE. That said, Verizon 3G is INCREDIBLY slow. If you're doing prepaid, is there a reason you need to stick to Verizon? There's a reason why they are the only carrier I've never used. Unless Verizon is the only one that services your area well, I'd look elsewhere. Then again, with prepaid, I don't think you're going to see TOO much better. For example, Straight Talk doesn't offer LTE either I don't think, but if you can at least get GSM Straight Talk, I believe they support HSPA+ which, on AT&T's network is damn near as fast as Verizon's LTE (at least what I see it run at around here).
As far as the phones, I think Android is superior to iPhone, but I understand a lot of people's likes of iPhone, and it's the best for a lot of people. These threads really are pointless because it's such an opinionated question. If you have questions about certain technologies that one or the other may support or may support better than the other, by all means, ask that to get some more info. Otherwise, just go to the store and play with a few different phones and see what you like the most. You'll never get a definitive answer asking here. I will agree, though, with what most people said. Android is more of a power users' phone. iPhone is more of the simple but does it's job well type phone.
