It’s Verizon iPhone Day :)

I've waited for this day for over 3 years now. It's the day that my "I'd get an iPhone if it were on Verizon" friends can finally shut up about it 🙂  Frankly I don't really care which phone you use or which network you use it on. Use whatever you like!

I've said it before and I'll say it again now. I have no plans of switching off AT&T, simply because my service has been decent and my GSM phone has worked worldwide. However, I realize for countless others out there your experience has NOT been as good and you can't wait to be on Verizon. Well today is your day. Verizon just announced the long awaited iPhone on their network. Although I have no plans of switching I am very much looking forward to the competition that this will give AT&T. I also hope that many of you on AT&T do switch (if you really are unhappy with AT&T) as it will free up some bandwidth for us who are staying. 

I raise a glass of champagne and I celebrate this long awaited day with you. Enjoy!



Oh Snap! Mobile hotspot included for up to 5 devices. Um, AT&T? Helloooooo? What's your response? Hellloooo? 😉

$199 for the 16GB Model and $299 for the 32GB Model – iPhone 4 on Verizon.

Verizon's iPhone 4 FAQ is here.



Looks like the Verizon iPhone 4 will share the same experience as other CDMA phones in that you can't do data and talk on the phone at the same time! While this isn't new to Verizon customers, it's something that AT&T iPhone users would be giving up in the switch.

Hey! There was an ad for that 🙂



And of course there's the Daily Show Reaction 🙂

What will you do? Assuming that you are either at the end of your existing contract or you wait to the end of your contract:

  1. Either Engadget or Gizmodo is recommending waiting until July when the next version of the iPhone will be hitting the streets. I think if I were mostly happy with my AT&T acct., that I’d just wait and see what improvements will be made to the new phone.

  2. I guess I’m one of your friends that you now want me to shut up about it. Well, not so fast. The current iPhone will only work on Verizon’s 3G network. Which from what I have read is not fast enough to handle a call and data transfer at the same time. (Like it does on AT&T)
    The CEO of Verizon stated on TV this morning that their new 4Glte network (which they really wanted to call 6Glte) won’t be nation or world wide for 2-3 more years. I also read that it takes Apple 1 year (cycle) to update it version of their phone. So the iPhone 5 (?) for Verizon network won’t be available until next year and then maybe Verizon’s 4Glte network may also be wide spread enough throughout the US and the world to make it worth the jump. So this is all still 1-3 years away from it all working the way we want it to. So by that time will the Google Android surpass the great tool that the iPhone is today? I guess we shall see!

  3. Hi All, I feel that both At & T and Verizon will be offering the Iphone. For At & T, they will get a new version in June and Verizon will probably keep the IP4 till it catches up. It doesnt say that they are the new exclusive carrier, and since two different type of phones in terms of networks, its just helping Apple and the consumer.

  4. It’s not that their network isn’t “fast enough” CDMA doesn’t support talk and data transfer.
