05/25/2011, Remember how the whole world (or so it seemed at that time) waited with bated breath for news of a CDMA iPhone, which finally arrived on Verizon Wireless? Well, take a back seat and enjoy your cup of joe as we bring you back in time by divulging some information about the CDMA iPhone. It has a nickname – ACME, where Verizon engineers were supposedly working at it for half […]
04/07/2011, Verizon Wireless announced that they have sold more than a million CDMA iPhone 4 handsets during its first few weeks of hitting the market, according to research and measurement firm comScore. How did ComScore come about this figure? Well, they do go through monthly surveys of Americans’ wireless activities, and during their February survey which involved 10,300 phone owners, the Verizon iPhone 4 actually made quite an impact. There was […]
02/07/2011, Before the Verizon CDMA iPhone was unveiled, folks were speculating if the carrier would be offering a CDMA + GSM iPhone. Now the folks over at iFixit have taken the latest iPhone apart and found that the phone includes a Qualcomm MDM6600 chip, which supports high-speed HSPA and CDMA frequencies and is the same chipset used in the Droid Pro world phone. This more or less means that the Verizon […]
02/07/2011, TeleNav has announced that its TeleNav GPS app will be available on the Apple App Store as a free download for the Verizon iPhone 4 upon certification and folks who download it will receive free maps and local search capabilities, along with free access to advanced navigation features, such as spoken turn-by-turn directions and 3D moving maps for the first 30 days after download. After the 30-day trial period is […]
02/06/2011, Folks have long been making fun of the network quality of the iPhone on AT&T’s network and Verizon aired an iPhone ad during the Super Bowl to remind users of that point. The ad features a Verizon iPhone user saying “I can hear you now”. That’s probably an interesting ad, but the funny thing is that users are reporting that the Verizon guy’s voice could barely be heard during the […]
01/26/2011, Are you planning to take the big jump over to Verizon Wireless just to take advantage of a CDMA iPhone 4? Well, assuming you don’t mind taking the plunge, you can also fork out another $20 monthly to use your iPhone 4 as a wireless hotspot – at least that is what Brenda Raney, executive director of corporate communications, mentioned. Good thing it isn’t more expensive than what Verizon smartphone […]
01/21/2011, With vacation blackout dates going around for the Apple Store, Verizon’s iPhone has now found a space on TV for an advert, making it the first time in the US that the iPhone will be available on a carrier other than AT&T. The ad puts the special date as the 10th of February 2011, which is within the vacation blackout that we discovered a little while ago. Are you going […]
01/21/2011, While the iPad 2 rumors have been grabbing the headlines recently, let’s not forget that many folks are still dreaming of getting hold of Verizon’s CDMA iPhone. Now word is going around that Apple has begun to send out mandatory vacation blackout notices to Apple Stores, barring managers and other employees from taking vacation days from February 5th to the 18th. Aside from the lack of vacation days, there will […]
01/17/2011, To get an idea on just how much of a push Verizon will make with their recently announced CDMA iPhone, Pegatron, one of the major manufacturers, is tipped to ship anywhere from 12 million to 15 million units of these puppies this year. Sounds like good news? Absolutely – considering the company needed this bit of boost to help it cover the recent loss of orders when it came to […]
01/12/2011, Verizon’s iPhone 4 is still hot out of the oven and the mudslinging between mobile carriers has resumed. T-Mobile has taken to making fun of the lack of 4G connectivity on the iPhone 4 on both carriers while promoting its 4G network. You can check out a video above, and in case you think that the iPhone 4 is a 4G device like many others out there, the video will […]
01/12/2011, While we were still mulling over the question as to why GSM iPhones lack the personal hotspot feature, here we play the role of being a Verizon iPhone. Of course, the mobile carriers will have to do their part by supporting this feature, so when it comes to AT&T, this might not happen overnight. The more customer friendly (read: lenient ) carriers might just be pleased to know about this […]
01/12/2011, One of the major features of Verizon’s iPhone 4 is support for creating your own personal hotspots that supports up to five Wi-Fi devices to share the iPhone’s data connection. While there isn’t any official confirmation just yet, word is going around that Apple is planning to bring the same personal hotspot feature to GSM versions of the iPhone in the upcoming iOS 4.3 update.
01/11/2011, This would have been super news if the FCC published this 24-hours ago, and now after the Verizon iPhone has been unveiled, the FCC has given the green light for a CDMA/EVDO version of the iPhone 4, bearing the model number A1349. The external design of the Verizon iPhone is similar to AT&T’s version, though the internal components have been tweaked. As we already know, the Verizon iPhone only supports […]
01/11/2011, Seems like with the CDMA iPhone rumors finally put to rest (after so many years, we might add) the merry go round of the white iPhone 4 is surfacing again. It wasn’t too long after Verizon announced the CDMA iPhone 4 that folks noticed that there was a white iPhone 4 pictured on Verizon’s site, breathing life into the white iPhone 4 rumors again.
