With the war for subscribers rife between AT&T/iPhone and Verizon, their latest TV ads are a constant dig at the other to gain support. AT&T’s ploy seems to be to entice Verizon followers with the iPhone and a superior network, while Verizon is trying to keep its current subscribers by saying that its network isn’t the subpar network that AT&T has.

While Apple/AT&T are promoting their idea of the multi-tasking iPhone, highlighting that as you make a video of your child, you could then jump straight into a conference call.
