04-28-2011, 03:16 PM #1What is the firmware being shipped w/the Verizon white iPhone?
Hopefully it is 4.2.6, I am going to get one, Was gonna get it this morning but the stupid Vzw guy said he didnt have the model that I reserved, and pushed me (Till I left the store) to get a stupid Droid. I would like to know if the FW is Untethered JB. TY

I bought mine about a week and a half ago at a vzw store and it came with 4.2.6. Now with that being said, my purchase was only a few days after the launch of 4.2.7 and then only a few days later apple stopped signing 4.2.6. There is a possibility you could buy a new one with 4.2.7 but vzw is usually pretty slow on this so I would say you will be okay and get a 4.2.6 model.

I am wondering this as well. I get mine Monday morning. Let me know if u find out.

I'm going to assume 4.2.7 just bc none of the white were available before. And 4.2.6 is long gone from being signed. Any black could've been sitting on the shelf from when 4.2.6 was the latest, but this wouldn't apply for the white in my opinion.

Well hey you might get a surprise then lol.
I mean it's logical to think it'll come with 4.2.7 just bc of what i said above. But we don't know if Apple had them ready to go already before 4.2.7 or shortly after.

Just try to get the oldest one you can from the store. They date their phones usually when they come in so just ask around. The older it is the better chance it'll come with 4.2.6. The two white gsm iPhones i have played with had the 4.10. Baseband both came with 4.3.1.

Anyone find out yet? I may go to the verizon store on my way home if not.

I had to order mine online and it doesn't ship until 5-2, So I wont find out anytime soon.

I went to apple today and the display white verizon iPhones were on 4.2.7. The display white AT&T iPhones were on 4.3.2 so there is a chance the updated it in store before putting them on display based on the eu models shipping with 4.3.1....

They might update the displays but maybe theres a chance that the NIB ones which they don't access will still have 4.2.6. Though of course when the phones were manufactured they'd have to have been manufactured with 4.2.6. But no answer is definite until more people get them and see

Yea, I just *finally* got mine and it is on 4.2.6, Which really doesnt matter now since 4.2.7 is fully tethered....Dont know about 4.2.8 tho.
