After revealing that the iPhone 4 will finally arrive on Verizon Wireless at an event in New York City Tuesday morning, you’d think the carrier would be out of newsworthy items. Apparently, that’s not the case, as the company’s chief financial officer claims a VZW-compatible iPad is incoming.
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.
Currently, there are no specific pricing plans offered for Verizon iPhones. You'll have to sign up for an existing pricing plan that Verizon has available right now, unlike AT&T, which has specific pricing plans for iPhone users.
Unfortunately, the Verizon network will not accept FaceTime calls over the CDMA network. We just talked to Verizon at the event in New York City and there will be no FaceTime calls made over the Verizon network, just like AT&T. You'll still need WiFi to make calls to your friends and loved ones.
Confused about how to actually get the Verizon iPhone 4 though you're already on the AT&T network? Verizon's put up a nifty, in-depth FAQ about transfering your current number, how long it takes to port over, and whether or not you'll be eligible for the iPhone 4 with your "New Every Two" upgrade.
After four years of speculation and rumors, a Verizon iPhone 4 was finally announced at a press event in New York City on Tuesday. Existing customers will be able to preorder the device beginning February 3, with sales expanding to new customers a week later, on February 10.
Verizon has updated its front page, with the words "iPhone 4. The phone that changed everything." You can now purchase it from their site directly for $199.99 beginning February 10, and you can actually sign up for an email list to get the phone from a special "reserved quantity" list.
So, what do you say folks? Are you getting the Verizon iPhone?
