    Nice commercial. Just waiting to see what VZ customers think of the iPhone on the new network.

    It doesn't matter how much slower Verizon's network is or the fact that you can't browse/talk at the same time...this is a win for everyone. People that live in fringe AT&T areas can now get the phone through Verizon and maybe a pricing war will begin. I am sticking with AT&T as they work the best no matter where I travel and I travel a lot. It's going to be interesting.

    It'll be cool when video calling works with all video calling phones. Not just iPhone to iPhone.

    Once the VZ iPhone is jailbroken and 3G Unrestrictor (may be up for a name change) is installed, who knows if it will work or not. Right now even with a good 3G signal facetime doesn't work well over 3G. Haven't tried Skype yet though.
    Yeah true. I have tried skype and it works well but it doesn't leave ya signed in so you have to call or txt someone first then tell them to get on skype than u can video call them. #fail

    Hahaha I'm sure VZ will have plenty to say. Apple isn't just calling the shots. VZ is as big if not bigger a company as apple in most respects.

    Haha, not. Apple calls the shots. Did you see what the iPhone did to At&t? Yeah, Apple is the one calling the shots on what happens on everything except the wireless data side (3g, 2g, cdma, gsm, whatever). At&t and verizon will control what is allowed to go over their networks.

    FaceTime is data so that is what my concern is. Oh well guess time will tell.

    haha, yeah. I don't think there will be facetime on your data plan until LTE is out.

    I dont think you are familiar with how apple and/or steve jobs operates are you?......

    Why do you think it took 3 1/2 years for a verizon iPhone? Because verizon wouldn't let apple basically have ultimate control like AT&T allowed....

    I don't think it took that long.

    I do believe Verizon was already planning to get iPhone when the iPhone 3G model came out (2008). However, with all the drama that happened at AT&T network during the launch, VZ wanted to make sure that their network can handle the 'stress'.

    It costs millions of dollars for R&D to prepare a network and its structure; Verizon does not want to make the same mistake as AT&T did for the past 2 years for iPhone 3G & 3GS (drop calls, slow data, etc.). It's not as easy as flipping a burger.

    Also, don't forget that AT&T was still in contract with Apple to carry iPhone exclusively in the US.
