With the announcement of the Verizon iPhone, we felt bad for our Sprint bretheren, who've been left out of the party. So we wondered if the CDMA phone could be taken over, much like how many jailbroken iPhones have found homes on T-Mobile. After a bit of research, we discovered the truth, which may make some Sprint customers consider the switch.
Sure, Verizon Wireless is finally getting the iPhone 4 after being announced Tuesday morning in New York City. But it appears the updated photos and videos leaked last week showed off one small problem: The buttons on the Verizon model are slightly lower, meaning some cases may not work.
Verizon COO Lowell McAdam said, as he unveiled the new iPhone, that if the press writes about something long enough and hard enough, eventually it comes true. If you're a Verizon customer who's been wanting an iPhone, or a resident of San Francisco or New York City who is tired of dealing with AT&T's wonky wireless service, today is your lucky day--well, actually, February 10 is the real day to pin down on your calendar.
Anyway, we know how hard it is to temper techno-lust with logic. So we crunched the numbers on your potential new acquisition so you don't have to.
After what seems like an eternity, Skype has updated their iOS app to version 3.0, bringing long-awaited two-way video calling -- and they’ve bested Apple’s own FaceTime by allowing such calls over 3G data connections.
Your family loves you. If however, that love was not enough to have them buy you an iPhone 4 for Christmas, you may still be able to snag one before the new year rolls around, as the telecom we all hate to love and love to hate has lowered the cost of purchasing a refurbished iPhone 4 handset from them.
In case you're still looking for a last minute gift, or couldn't afford to give/get an iPhone 4 just yet, now may be your chance. Word is that Sam's Club is planning on offering up the 16GB version of the device for $147 if you agree to the usual two-year deal with AT&T. Too good to pass up?
We've all been there: standing in a store at the holidays, product in your hand, absolutely dead positive you saw this same purse/video game/DVD/emergency snake bite kit somewhere else and cheaper to boot. Was it online? Was it at Target or MegaloMart? And how much cheaper was it? A tiny bit not worth the effort or something totally on sale at such a price you'd knock over a senior citizen to get it? If only there were a way to check. Oh wait, you have your iPhone with you -- and boom, it's on.
