Let’s start with a price, the 16GB Verizon iPhone 4 will cost just $199 as part of a two-year deal, whilst the 32GB Verizon iPhone 4 will cost $299, these prices are identical to AT&Ts.
Existing Verizon customers will be able to pre-order their iPhone 4 from February 3rd, new customers will have to wait a week and will be able to pre-order their Verizon iPhone 4 from February 10th, you can pre-order yours online, in Verizon stores and even in Apple stores. Verizon has not confirmed what date they will begin shipping units.
When the announcement was made there a lot of confusion as to whether it would be 4G LTE complaint, sadly this is not the case, however Verizon’s 3G network is regarded by many as being far superior to AT&T’s, one bad thing is that Verizon iPhone 4 owners will not be able to talk and surf simultaneously.
When asked about the lack of 4G LTE connectivity Verizon’s representative suggested that Verizon customers wanted the iPhone 4 now, which suggests that creating a 4G complaint version would have pushed the release date much further back, during the Q&A Verizon and Apple kept quiet regarding whether there would be a yearly refresh cycle and how many units will be manufactured this year.
Will you jump ship from AT&T to Verizon Wireless?
