iPhone for Verizon

Updated on March 12, 2011

The Apple iPhone has been wireless carrier AT&T’s saving grace since 2007. Due to the increased demand for the iPhone and it’s unique interactive features and applications, many people switched carriers just to be able to get the phone, which until February of 2011, was only available to AT&T subscribers. However, it has recently been announced that Verizon will begin carrying the Apple iPhone 4 in early 2011. This is welcomed news among many existing Verizon customers, and serves to bridge the gap between Verizon and the apparent widespread monopoly that AT&T has had on the market for the past three years.

However, AT&T has seen the addition of the iPhone to Verizon’s vast variety of smart phones coming for some time. As a result, the company began making it easier for existing customers to upgrade to the new version of the iPhone at the end of 2010. Sadly, for the smaller companies out there like T-Mobile and Sprint, the war over the iPhone threatens the future of sales. These two companies, as well as many others, have been working to add other attractive smart phones to their existing line for the past two years.

The Verizon iPhone will be very much like AT&T iPhone, with just a handful of differences. Verizon’s version of the phone operates on CDMA technology, instead of GSM. Also, the Verizon iPhone does not have an external SD card slot, and the antenna is on the opposite side of the phone. The screen of the Verizon iPhone has a higher resolution than that offered by AT&T, and a built-in 5 megapixel camera allows for taking better photos while on-the-go. It also comes equipped with high definition video recording features, as well as all of the same applications that Apple brings. 

Another big difference between the Verizon iPhone 4 and that of AT&T is that the Verizon phone will only run on a 3G network. This should change in the future, though, since Verizon is upgrading their network to a 4G market. The company already has a 4G modem availableto existing customers. Verizon is accepting advance orders for the iPhone 4 through Verizon store locations and authorized dealers. The iPhone will have to be ordered in advance, even for existing customers. Although the iPhone offered by Verizon may look exactly like the one being currently offered through AT&T, there are a few differences in the way that they work.
