AT&T vs. Verizon: iPhone 4 Data, Calls and Coverage

If rumors are correct we should see the launch of the Verizon iPhone 4 in early 2011, if you are an unhappy AT&T customer who will be looking to switch to Verizon you may want to pay attention to this article as it points out some key differences between AT&T’s and Verizon’s networks.

According to a recent article posted on BeatWeek there is a limitation with Verizon’s CDMA network which may have a serious affect on the iPhone’s functionality, AT&T’s network allows you to check email and browse the internet whilst on a phone call, however Verizon’s doesn’t, therefore Verizon may perhaps have to make technical changes to their network to accommodate the iPhone, if not it may repel potential customers.

As you are probably aware AT&T no longer allow you to sign up to unlimited data plans, at the moment Verizon allow this, however are apparently following in AT&T’s footsteps and will soon be only offering limited data plans. Some experts suggest that keeping unlimited data plans could perhaps be a huge attraction for disgruntled AT&T customers. What do you think?

For me coverage is the single most important thing, let’s face it overall nationwide coverage is not important to all, however you need reception at your home and workplace etc. Many people say that Verizon’s overall coverage is superior, which has to be seen as an advantage especially as people want to stay connected with social networking etc no matter where they are.

Why will you buy the Verizon iPhone?
