iPhone Live 133: Verizon iPhone (Boom!)


The VZW iPhone is launching with 4.2.5 iOS... 4.3 is in Beta & will be released in March after the release of iPhone on VZW... That I would correct that portion of your podcast.

Another thing... If you jailbreak activate gesture on your iPhone I love Gestures & think Apple has become to dependent on the home button.. I have been wanting more damn Gestures for years now so it is more like the Mac & sets itself apart. I hope they do get rid of the damn home button & everything goes to gesture control just like no buttons on Mac.. What is wrong with everyone who don't figure that Apple will mostly like have 1-3 finger gestures on the iPhone while the iPad will have 5.

MAN another ass kissing for verizon, come on rene, tell us, are getting paid to talk about them..
Jesus christ, i'm tire of this verizon iphone bull crap.. verizon is not enough network for the iPhone. YOU WILL SEE. moron

BUT this guy is taliking too much, my god, there is nothing else to talk about.
Expert said, that the iPhone is too powerful for verizon network, period. slow a-s-s 3G, bad service in Puerto Rico, stupid customer service, crappy tech support, also any time you go out of USA, you need call them and let them know so the will set up your device, (WFT), I DON'T have to call att for that, etc etc, whoever switch may will regret, talk and surf internet is a big thing that att have and verizon don't, faster 3G speed, good customer service,etc etc.
