TiPb Asks: Did Verizon do enough?

Do you think that the Verizon iPhone announcement do enough to capture the hearts and minds of current AT&T customers? I'm not so sure myself. We got Mobile Hot Spot but I was hoping that we would get something more to sweeten the deal. White iPhone, buy out program, hold the iPhone 4 any way I want? Let us know what you think!

Apple: Verizon contract no exclusive (so Sprint is possible?)

Apple: Verizon contract no exclusive (so Sprint is possible?)

During the Verizon iPhone announcement today Apple COO Tim Cook revealed that their deal was multi-year but NOT exclusive. So that means there's no contractual reason we couldn't see a Sprint iPhone (or even T-Mobile?) but is there the will to get it done?

Do you want an iPhone on Sprint?

Verizon: We have the capacity to handle the iPhone

Verizon: We have the capacity to handle the iPhone

As part of the Verizon iPhone 4 announcement today, Dan Dee stressed that Verizon had been building out their network and scaling their infrastructure from retail to supply to... hopefully reception in order to handle the iPhone.

That should be good news for anyone in the US used to dropping iPhone calls. Then again, talk is cheap and the iPhone hits the network like rhino, so we'll have to see what happens when tens of millions of 3G devices are hammering your tower all at once.

Any guesses? Will Verizon hold up?

Verizon iPhone to include 5-device Wi-Fi Personal Hotspot, exclude Verizon bloatware

Verizon iPhone to include 5-device Wi-Fi Personal Hotspot, exclude Verizon bloatware

As part of the announcement today, it was revealed that the Verizon iPhone would indeed have mobile hotspot service (called Personal Hotspot), allowing you to connect up to 5 other devices to the Verizon iPhone 4's EVDO 3G network -- just like a MiFi.

This functionality hasn't been available in iOS before (outside Jailbreak) so it's a competitive advantaged over AT&T -- for now. That also means it will probably require a new version of iOS to offer the interface for it, so we getting iOS 4.2.2, iOS 4.3?

Will we be able to Jailbreak Verizon iPhone? Unlock for Sprint?

Will we be able to Jailbreak Verizon iPhone? Unlock for Sprint?

The Verizon iPhone has been announced so the first thing power users are going to want to know is whether or not it can be Jailbroken and maybe even unlocked to run on Sprint.

There won't be any solid information until the Verizon iPhone actually ships and the software and baseband become known quantities but the Dev Team seldom disappoints. An Unlock for Sprint will probably be harder than GSM carriers since no SIMs mean Sprint has to put the device on their network. Will they?

We're going to keep track of it in our iPhone Jailbreak Forum, so head on over!
