    There's also no way displaying an iPod touch 2g with wallpaper, FaceTime, and Camera gets by too, right? And yet, not only was it on apple.com, it's that way right now in the official iPod touch User Guide web app that comes as a default Safari bookmark. I'm not trying to troll or insult anyone's intelligence, I'm just saying stupid things like that slip by. Also, (on 4.1 at least) when you go to Settings>Wallpaper the thumbnail with the wallpaper preview shows the iPod having a unified iPod app instead of Music and Videos. Alot of stupid things slip by when people make an image in Photo Shop instead of taking a picture. And what do you mean you can't believe this ad would slip by? It did for a while. And do you think they were trying to advertise a Droid X running iOS?

    Apple - iPod touch - iOS 4 is the world?s most advanced mobile OS

    Apparently iPods can make Emergency Calls!!!!

    What people are missing about the ads is that they are often contracted. There are professional companies that do these ads for various products, services, etc. From the information we have been provided it is just as likely that a company that has done ads for both Verizon and ATT made this mistake as it is that Verizon is getting the iPhone. Not saying that this disproves (or proves) anything, but it could very well just be an honest mistake.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    For the THIRD times in this thread, the plans ARE NOT SMARTPHONE DATA PLANS.

    let's hope this rumor dies like all the others.

    And for comparison, AT&T's own data card plans are $60/month for 5GB. So with Verizon's offering you'll be getting the same monthly data allowance for $10 less at a (theoretical) faster speed.

    Exactly what I was trying to say. I don't get why people can't understand this.

    A random Verizon employee knows nothing more about them getting the iPhone then me or you.

    Dude 4G is a realty, At&t will be coming out with legit 4G soon. I will say that Verizon's 4G is way better than t-mobile because they are using LTE which is state of the art wireless technology while t-mobile is using wimax technology for there so called 4G network which is not up the the technical specifications needed for 4G

    How much for 5GB?? I bought a $100 WiFi point from Clear about 2 weeks ago. Great 6Mb/1Mb service all over New York City. No Contract, $25/mo - UNLIMITED (True 4G!). It is advertised for iOS devices only, but I've had my MBP connect to it as well as my iPhone and iPad. The only issue is a small latency one when I am in a bad service area, but it is still faster than my 3G iPhone.

    Seems like Verizon is touting something more expensive, for less service, when someone else has already done it. Wow, really does sound like Verizon.

    There's no way he would know that info. Just because they got the iPad doesn't mean they'll get the iPhone...a lot of places have the iPad now.

    5GB??? I go thru 5 gigs of data in one night with MyWi running and streaming my Slingbox on my laptop. Does anyone else use more than 5gb with MyWi?? I mean hypothetically speaking of course..;-)

    BTW, none of the carriers are coming out with TRUE 4G which requires 100MB of transfer rate. FYI
    Sprint 4G = ClearWire WIMAX = 10mbs (20mbs max)
    T-Mobile 4G = 3G-HSPA+ = 12mbs (21mbs max)
    Verizon 4G-LTE = Long Term Evolution (LTE) = 12mbs (50mbs max)
    ATT 4G = Long Term Evolution (LTE) = 12mbs (50mbs max)
