When Apple’s iPhone was exclusively on AT&T it was the butt of endless jokes that went something like, “It’s a great phone unless you want to make a phone call.”

Now that it’s on Verizon it looks like those jokes are moot.

A new ChangeWave Research study reveals Verizon iPhone customers are reporting fewer dropped calls than their AT&T counterparts. (ChangeWave surevey people and asked them for their recollection of dropped calls in the last few weeks.)

The rate of dropped calls on the Verizon iPhone is right in line with rate of dropped calls for Verizon customers overall, says ChangeWave.

This is good news for Apple. Now matter how many people blamed AT&T, there was always a sneaking suspicion that the dropped call problem was Apple’s fault. This chart suggests the blame truly lies with AT&T.
