Hahah this commercial just came on During the Simpsons (like RIGHT now..). I laughed a bit. "iDon't".
I for one think they did a good job because there was no real showing of the device, just jabs at Apple.

Verizon is far and away a better service provider in my area and the prices are not really any different. AT&T is crap when it comes to coverage but I deal with it because I like the iPhone that much.
But if Verizon can bring a Google Android device to the table that is robust enough to rival and/or beat the iPhone in features and inspire 3rd party app development then it can only mean better phones for everyone in the future. Apple and AT&T will not be able to rest on their laurels and get away with ridiculous BS like the denying iPhone users MMS service for years or Apple denying amazing apps that Android phones will embrace.

these are pretty silly and sound like desperation. Theres a map for that was just so sad now, iDon't thats just stupid.

Wow, I can't help but like the ad.. it's funny.
BUT, I guess the rumored Apple/Verizon partnership isn't gonna happen lol.

Im hoping Droid is a better phone, because it forces apple to look at things the consumer wants. Maybe then they will realize, the phone world isnt like the computer world and lighten up on there grip they have over the iphone.
Personally if i could theme the phone, and have quick reply/send i wouldn't really even worry about if a jailbreak was possible.

I love it, more power to Verizon! I hope they make the Iphone look like tonka toy. Apple will have to make major improvements. Win for us consumers. There is nothing wrong with stating the facts, that Apple and their iphone has lots of room for improvement,by the way,their computers are not near as perfect as some in here like to think. If Apple don`t like being called out, do something about it.

What all the clever reparteť also addresses, in deferred mode is: the iPhone has become the "measuring stick" for their offerings. I came from the Symbian platform, which has apps to cover pretty much everything out there. They also have "jailbreaking" and a million ways of modding the phones. I chose the iPhone because of the "experience". It's not perfect, has a lot of room for improvement but it does most of what we "need" and misses a little of what we "want". Just like every other one...

While i do believe the iPhone is THE phone to have- it does everything, is stylish and intuitive to use, i have to say that some hardcore competition will only make BOTH products better.
Truthfully, my iPhone is giving me so many problems, even since the update, that if they dont give me a new one next time i take it in, i will seriously reconsider being an iPhone owner. Not that i dislike AT&T, but truthfully, their service doesnt live up to what its talked up to being. I often lose my internet for no goddamn reason or my phone recently will just say it needs to be plugged into iTunes at random times. Its not worth all the hassle for my $80 phone bill.

In other news Verizon confirms the new phone will be a bit larger than the super slim iphone, but an executive for marketing the new Verizon phone was quoted as saying "quite honestly we need all the help making a bulge in our pocket we can get".

damn drug dealers, and there jailbroken iPhones... ____ Hit the thanks if you think i suck

$10 a month plan? How many minutes/texts other services besides data? I'd like to get that plan. I guess I'll call, ask for a 3G S and tell them I want the $10 a month voice plan. I might have to give a few over the phone "nudges" for that right???

well iphone is gonna die sooner or later,its the life of electronics
10-19-2009, 08:53 AM #115
Well I am an iphone owner and love that Verizon went after them in that ad!!! They need someone to fight them and maybe that will get apple to stop being so big headed thinking they are on top and cant be dealt with. I am tired of apple not allowing certain apps on the iphone or no customizing you have to jailbreak to do anything. Then its the dropped calls every now and then or 3G service decides to stop after a few minutes.
I am just tired of Apple and AT&T both when it comes to the iphone. When ever the 4G launches I will see where the jailbreaking is at that point or if its even possible and what this new Verizon phone is doing. Hopefully Apple will take their foot out there *** and wake up and give its customers what they want. But at this point I highly doubt that, I think Apple will still be the same and overly protective of the iphone.

LOL! Poor Verizon guys, they need help with that. What next, the Viagra-Droid?

Here's the bottom line:
Anybody who actually gives a crap about any of the stuff Verizon says the iPhone can't do, has actually jailbroken their phone and can not only do what Verizon says they can't, but much more. There is no phone in existence that can out perform a properly Jailbroken iPhone on the latest firmware, hands down end of discussion.
Sorry but any points that anyone tries to make can be foiled. For example:
iDon't want a real keyboard. (I like the way it can change, and how the buttons aren't too small for my fingers or take up space on the phone).
iDo run multiple apps QUITE WELL thanks to backgrounder and Kirikao or whatever.
iTake all the nightshots I want with the plethora of 3rd party software available for shooting/editing with the iPhone. But if I'm really trying to take pictures, I use my DSLR anyways, who uses a phone to take shots of anything important?!
iUse open development apps every day, all I DO is use open development apps. There are so many available in Cydia/Rock that the open development apps alone outnumber the apps verizon has in their official wannabe stores.
iHave a custom background different from my locked wall paper, special icons and custom keyboards/keypads. There are more themes available than a TI-86 can even count to. There's even an app called Customize. Way to do your research Verizon.
iRun widgets all day. There are so many mobile substrate apps that knock this one out of the park, including things like Intelli Screen.
iDon't need interchangeable batteries. That's just clunky and cheap. I'm not going to keep ANY phone long enough that I'll need to replace a battery, so I'd rather have it cooped up in there where it's safe and can't fall out or get knocked loose etc.
Everything Droid can do I can do better, i(Phone) can do anything better than Droid.

iHate Verizon, AT&T, Apple, iPhone fanboys. iDont care about Sprint or T-Mobile becuase quite frankly they are the 3rd and 4th carrier and have no chance in this market. Bottom line is that no matter what carrier your on, what phone you have your going to be a fanboy for them. How many of you had Verizon before getting the iPhone and now are anti-Verizon?
We as consumers can't win, theres always going to be competition. Carriers are going to be competitive and its for the best of us. I have swapped phones and carriers several times. Maybe when we get to LTE you can stick with your carrier of choice and unlock the phone.
Grow up with bashing the ads. You all contradict yourself anyway.
Yes I own and iPhone but honestly you need to come to realization that there are other phones out there with better features than the iPhone has. I also own a Blackberry for this reason.

@ DirtyDan: ^ The End.
I wonder exactly what is it that a BB does so much better than an iPhone that I need one just for that...
