iPhone 4 on Verizon explained

From Apple: iPhone 4 — Available on Verizon February 10. “Qualified Verizon Wireless customers will also have the exclusive opportunity to pre-order iPhone 4 online on February 3, ahead of general availability.”

‎”Whichever network you choose, you’ll get FaceTime video calling, the high-resolution Retina display, a 5-megapixel camera, HD video recording, long battery life, and all the other great features of iPhone 4.”

‎”The new iPhone 4 is functionally identical to the existing AT&T/GSM iPhone 4, but has been made CDMA compatible to run on Verizon’s network. It seems there have been some antenna changes to the design with an additional antenna break in the casing.”

“The new design has moved the antenna break position from the top to the sides of the device. The change may simply be to accommodate CDMA’s different communication frequency rather than address the antenna issue from the original design.” “In a surprise move, Verizon is allowing the iPhone 4 to be a mobile Mi-Fi device that can share its 3G connection to up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices. This means your laptop can share your iPhone’s 3G internet connection when a regular connection is not available. However, as a CDMA device, you won’t be able to use your 3G internet connection and Voice at the same time.”

From Verizon’s FAQ:

Pricing
Are there minimum service and data pricing requirements?

Yes, iPhone customers will need to choose from any of the current Nationwide plans. Customers will also be required to activate a data package, pricing will be announced at a later date.

Purchase
I currently have an iPhone with AT&T. Can I keep my existing version of iPhone?

No, in order to take advantage of the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless network, you will need an iPhone 4 that works on the Verizon Wireless network.

Here’s another difference between Verizon and AT&T: Last year AT&T allowed some users to upgrade to iPhone 4 before their 2-year contract was up — that’s how my wife and I were able to upgrade ours early. Verizon is not allowing any early upgrades (unless the full, unsubsidized price is paid by the customer).

Will you be getting an iPhone 4 on Verizon or not? Leave a comment and let us know.

Update: Current iPhone 4 cases might not work with the Verizon version because the mute button and volume buttons are in a slightly different position.

    I’ll be sticking with my iPhone 4 that I got last year. I haven’t had problems where I am with AT&T and I need to finish out my two-year contract before I change anything.

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
