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!

Verizon iPhone 4 announced, available February 10

As was widely expected, the Verizon iPhone 4 was announced today and will be available early February. It's got FaceTime and Retina Display, just like the GSM iPhone 4, but a different antenna for EVDO Rev-A.

“We are pleased to introduce millions of wireless users to the industry leading iPhone 4 on the nation’s most reliable network,” said Lowell McAdam, president and chief operating officer of Verizon. “This is an important step for the industry as two great companies join forces to give wireless customers one of the most important technological additions to the mobile landscape this century.”

Verizon iPhone questions: unlimited data, tethering, mobile hotspot, simultaneous voice and data, international roaming?

Unless the entire internet and print media are wrong, we're just over 12 hours away from the Verizon iPhone announcement, yet many questions remain about unlimited data, tethering, mobile hotspot, simultaneous voice and data, and international roaming.

Will any of these be supported by a Verizon iPhone? Some of them? None of them? Let's take a look.

Will the Verizon iPhone help fix the AT&T iPhone?

Will the Verizon iPhone help fix the AT&T iPhone?

Now that it looks all but certain the Verizon iPhone will be announced tomorrow, one of the questions that comes up is will users switching from AT&T help take the load off and create a better level of service for everyone?

First, a personal anecdote: I left Montreal to fly to CES 2011 last Tuesday. In Montreal the iPhone is fast, like HSPA 7.2 fast, with nary a dropped call and lost network signal, and a battery life that lasts as long as Apple's TV commercial suggests.

I switched planes in Charlotte and began to roam on AT&T. My iPhone 4 showed full bars but I kept getting a popup saying there was no network connection. That means the tower was broadcasting but there was no backhaul behind it. Like if your home Wi-Fi router is fine but your broadband ISP is down -- lots of radio, no internet.

Daily Tip: How to get a better Gmail experience on iPhone

Big Google user and interested in getting a better Gmail experience on the iPhone? You can use IMAP or set up Gmail as Exchange via GoogleSync in the Mail app to cover the basics, but you won't get stars and labels. You can use Gmail.com to get stars and labels, but you won't get iPhone Contacts integration, attachment viewing, or easy access to multiple accounts. For that you have to get a little more... creative. We'll show you how after the break.

Original AT&T iPhone: 4 years later

While everyone waits for the big Verizon iPhone announcement tomorrow it's a touch poetic to remember that the original Cingular/AT&T iPhone was announced on January 9, 2007 -- almost four years ago to to the day.

Do you remember what smartphones were like before Steve Jobs took to the Macworld stage and finally revealed Apple's wide screen iPod, internet communicator and revolutionary phone? Can you believe how far they've come since?

Let us know what you remember the most about the original iPhone introduction, what phone you were using at the time, and how in your opinion Apple has changed things (for good or for bad) since? Anyone still using their original iPhone? Share your thoughts!

Video after the break!
