Welcome Verizon To Our Family

Hello there!

It was announced today that Verizon is going to be selling and providing service for the iPhone 4. Welcome to the party, Verizon!

Before you jump all over me and say, “But Verizon has already been selling iPads!” I don’t know if I consider that as their first Apple product. Right now, the Verizon iPads require a separate add-on device in order for the iPad to work on Verizon’s CDMA network. The iPhone being announced today will not require an add-on device, making it a truly Verizon supported product out-of-box.

Moving along…

In the next few weeks, we at iResQ will be focusing on the differences between the Verizon iPhone 4 and the current model AT&T iPhone 4. Why, you ask? So that we can launch our Verizon iPhone 4 repairs, of course. We will be servicing (repairing) the Verizon models in the same way that we have been servicing AT&T customers since the iPhone 1G / iPhone 2 / original iPhone was released in the U.S. way back in 2007.

From an article I found (linked), “The CDMA network on Verizon did force some design tweaks on the device. The iPhone 4’s exterior antenna has been modified to run on the CDMA service, and Verizon users will be unable to use a data service like Web surfing at the same time as a phone call, based on the limits of the technology. However, the CDMA iPhone 4 will include a “Personal Hotspot” capability to allow customers to connect as many as 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices to the Web though the iPhone.”

I can’t wait to see some Verizon / Apple ads. I hope they get a new campaign that’s as recognizable as the, “Can you hear me now” guy. Maybe they’ll bring back an old favorite of mine… check out the lower photo below and let me know what you think.

"Can you hear me now" Guy... Not bad.

"Dude, you're getting a new Verizon iPhone 4!"

Not so much? Just kidding, the Dell guy is not really one of my favorites. I think it was pretty successful, though.

OK — we have some work to do, but rest assured, we’ll take care of the dirty work and we’ll be ready for those Verizon phones if and when people need our help.

Thanks for reading,
