Verizon iPhone available on February 10th
The Verizon iPhone will be available for everyone to order on February 10th, but existing Verizon customers will get the chance to pre-order the device on February 3rd. As expected, the models offered will be the 16GB iPhone 4 for $199 and the 32GB iPhone 4 for $299, both requiring a two year contract, this is the same pricing structure and contract requirements that AT&T offers.
Other than coverage, the main differences between the AT&T iPhone and Verizon iPhone are two data related features. One, Verizon’s offering will include a mobile hotspot that allows you to turn your VZW iPhone 4 into a wireless router for up to five device. And two, AT&T’s iPhone allows you to use data and voice simultaneously (meaning you can talk on the phone while using the internet), this is something the Verizon iPhone is incapable of doing due to CDMA limitations.
We will provide details on plan options and pricing when it becomes available.
