On the eve of the expected Verizon iPhone launch, Wall Street analysts are chiming in with warnings that AT&T could be in for a rough year, with one analyst predicting that AT&T will "get demolished."

With over 3 years of iPhone exclusivity in the U.S., AT&T has enjoyed a steady stream of new subscribers, but the announcement of a Verizon-compatible CDMA iPhone at Tuesday's Verizon event could disrupt AT&T's growth streak.

Verizon May Spend More than $5 Billion Subsidizing iPhone Sales in 2011

Analysts say Verizon will spend billions this year to make it easy for customers to sign up for data contracts with Apple's iPhone.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Verizon's estimated $3 to $5 billion in iPhone subsidies will initially cut into the carrier's profits in the hopes of adding millions of new smartphone users to its subscriber base.

Verizon to outpace AT&T in subscriber growth for the first time 
since 2008.
