EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE VERIZON iPHONEJanuary 11th, 2011 at 4:58 pm by Susan Hogan under Consumer, General Talk, Technology
So many of you have been asking me questions about the Verizon iPhone, so here you go…hopefully your questions can be answered here!
When will the Verizon iPhone 4 be available? If you are a Verizon customer you get first crack at it. You can pre-order it starting Feb. 3rd, the rest of you can get it Feb. 10th.
What is the difference between the Verizon iPhone and At and t’s? The major difference is the CDMA chips inside the Verizon iPhone that will allow it to run on the Verizon network. It’s software is more advanced too: running iOS 4.2.5, while most current release for all other iPhones is iOS 4.2.1. One other big feature Verizon will offer that AT and T does not, it’s the ability to use the iPhone as a WiFi hot spot. Verizon tells me up to 5 WiFi devices can connect to the iPhone’s Internet connection at the same time!
How much will the Verizon iPhone Cost? $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, both include a two year contract!
Will your AT and T iPhone work on Verizon’s network? No. Unfortunately, the two are on separate frequencies so if you are an AT and T customer and want to make the switch, you have to buy the Verizon iPhone and go on Verizon’s network.
