Verizon Employees Not Allowed to Get iPhone 4

Verizon Employees Not Allowed to Get iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 on Verizon is a pretty big deal, especially for Verizon. The carrier has more than likely done everything they can think of to prepare for the masses that will jump onto the network to get the device. But, what you won't find are Verizon employees with the device in their own hand, ready to show off. We've been informed that the iPhone 4 will not be carried by Verizon employees, because the carrier is preventing the phone from being added to employee accounts.

Verizon iPhone 4 Doesn’t Suffer from Death Grip

Verizon iPhone 4 Doesn’t Suffer from Death Grip

Now that the device is real, and we've managed to get some hands-on time with it, we were curious to see if Verizon's and Apple's claims that the only-slightly altered antenna version for the CDMA-based variant of the iPhone 4 (in the United States) wouldn't suffer from the same problems as its GSM cousin were true. We took the device in our hand, and we began to put our hand, and fingers, in all of the spots that the antenna usually suffered from. We managed to get some interesting results.

Verizon iPhone 4 vs HTC ThunderBolt vs Motorola Bionic

We've already compared the original AT&T iPhone 4 to the newly announced Verizon iPhone 4, but that's not the whole story. If you'll recall, Verizon had a press conference last week during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where the wireless carrier unveiled a plethora of new devices. Two of the bigger names were from HTC and Motorola, which unveiled the ThunderBolt and Bionic, respectively. But, how do they compare to the iPhone 4?

Verizon iPhone 4 moved buttons means AT&T bumpers won’t fit

According to Verizon the physical changes between their new CDMA iPhone 4 and the original AT&T iPhone 4 basically amount to the new CDMA radio. However, we've spotted another potential headache for those looking to switch between the AT&T handset and the new Verizon version: the ringer mute switch and volume buttons have been moved, meaning AT&T iPhone 4 bumpers won't fit on the Verizon handset.

Sprint iPhone 4 Now Possible?

Sprint iPhone 4 Now Possible?

We're here at the Verizon event in New York city and whilst pondering the decisions made for the iPhone 4 being on Verizon with no 4G LTE connectedness, we are also setting our minds to another point -- there was a question about the CDMA being exclusive to Verizon and the answer was no! The agreement between Verizon and Apple on this phone is a multi-year non-exclusive agreement. What does that mean? We've got a bit of a hunch - six letters and another big company away, what do you think about a Sprint iPhone 4? And what does that mean for the exclusiveness of Apple?

Verizon iPhone 4 vs AT&T iPhone 4

Now that the iPhone 4 has been officially announced for Verizon's network, many potential customers are going to be asking an obvious question: what's different? While all of the details regarding the phone are still a mystery, more or less, we do know that, for the most part, the iPhone 4 on Verizon is pretty much the same exact phone that's currently available, and has been available on AT&T's network for some time now. However, there are some changes, so let's go ahead and run through them.

Verizon iPhone 4 Event Q and A [Why no LTE?]

Verizon iPhone 4 Event Q and A [Why no LTE?]

The first question the folks at the Verizon event were asked was of course: Why no LTE? The answer - change in design. Tim's* answer is that the first gen LTE chips forced some design compromises that Apple refused to make. [This is similar to Sony Ericsson not wanting to put HSPA+ in the ARC due to design changes.] They note that this project was more about timing and waiting for LTE integration in the iPhone would have delayed it. Our Verizon rep here says that this is the right time for Verizon customers. They note that this is non-exclusive CDMA - and note - the iPhone doesn't appear to say Verizon in the status bar.
