“More bars in more places” may be more than just a catchy slogan for AT&T by this time next year, after the company announced Sunday that it’s buying up the only other GSM-based U.S. carrier, T-Mobile USA, for a whopping $39 billion. While many are predicting the death of wireless competition, the real question is: What does this mean for the iPhone?
AT&T wireless customers should really be thanking Apple and Verizon these days. Not only did the telco cough up 1,000 bonus rollover minutes to loyal iPhone customers just for sending a text message, they’ve now gone and doubled their 2GB tethering package at no extra cost.
In case you didn’t hear, a new iPhone was released this week, and you know what that means: Crowds of people clamoring to get Apple’s latest and greatest. Except in Verizon’s case, for the most part the crowds failed to materialize.
If you just returned from your local Apple or Verizon Wireless store with a shiny new iPhone 4 in your hand, you may be planning to buy a case next. This has become a particularly thorny problem, since the AT&T and Verizon versions of the handset feature a slightly different button arrangement and cases made for one may not work with the other. Never fear, MacLife.com is here to help!
Verizon iPhone 4 owners, welcome to the App Store! On the heels of the carrier’s own free My Verizon Mobile and VZ Transfer apps released last week, GPS developer TeleNav has announced that Verizon customers will be getting their own “Big Red” flavor navigation in the style of the AT&T Navigator app.
While most of the country was focused on the Super Bowl this past weekend (the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, in case you weren’t paying attention), a couple of Apple-related developments went down involving both the Verizon iPhone 4 and the mobile iTunes Store.
Verizon is taking no prisoners with their second commercial for the iPhone 4 -- in addition to actually showing the handset this time, they’ve pulled out the big guns with the “Can you hear me now?” guy.
Verizon Wireless is finally accepting iPhone 4 preorders from existing customers today, and that means the embargo has been lifted on reviews of the new handset. A flood of such reviews hit late Wednesday night, and there aren’t too many surprises to be found.
Lost amongst the flurry of Macworld 2011 late last week, Verizon Wireless announced rates for their voice and data plans on the iPhone 4 -- not to mention how much it will cost you to switch on that awesome Mobile Hotspot feature.
