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 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.

[Thanks to The Keith Newman for this tip!]

Original AT&T iPhone: 4 years later

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!

Apple cutting out restocking fees, adding setup centers starting January 11

Apple Retail Stores are set to put an end to restocking fees starting Tuesday January 11, and will also be adding new setup areas for Macs, iPhones, and iPads.

Previously when returning a product to your Apple Retail Store you get hit with a 10 percent restocking fee but this will no longer be the case starting tomorrow. Of course the standard 14 day window will still apply for returns. The setup areas will be for those who need extra help getting started with their new Mac, iPhone, or iPad while leaving the Genius Bar clear to handle more technical support issues.

AT&T takes opening shot at Verizon iPhone

The Verizon iPhone has not been officially announced yet but that has not stopped AT&T firing the first shot at a CDMA iPhone.  According to a report by Business Insider, AT&T PR boss Larry Solomon has risen to the challenge and come out with the following statement:

The iPhone is built for speed, but that's not what you get with a CDMA phone. I'm not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the slow lane. AT&T’s GSM technology is faster than Verizon’s CDMA technology.

Verizon confident enough to keep unlimited data plans for iPhone 4?

Verizon confident enough to keep unlimited data plans for iPhone 4?

Now that we all just pretty take it for granted that the Verizon iPhone will be announced tomorrow and ship around the end of the month we can start sweating the details like -- will Verizon's network be able to handle the AT&T-crushing load and will they still offer unlimited data plans. According to "a person familiar with the matter" (probably not Steve Jobs, right?), the Wall Street Journal says the answer to both questions is "yes":
