It's probably too early to tell if you are asking about users who have the VZ iPhone, as it isn't out yet. I would imagine the changes may make some improvements but I can't imagine moving these things make that much of a difference.


personally I believe that most of these changes are in preparation for the iPhone 5 and am convinced that most of them will be showing up there. I don't believe that a company like Apple will make changes just to make changes. It is a company with a good foresight of things to come.
