TiPb TV 16: Switching to the Verizon iPhone?

The Verizon iPhone is almost upon us and it looks like many of you are making the big switch! Whether you're leaving the AT&T iPhone or moving from BlackBerry or Droid, you'll have to move your data over and maybe look for ways to keep some of the functionality you're used to. That's the topic for this episode of TiPb TV!

Sure the iPhone is popular and famous for being easy to use but It can be stressful to leave a network or device you're used to and comfortable with and pick up something new. The good news is if you're going from the AT&T iPhone to the Verizon iPhone you're just an iTunes backup and restore away from the simplest switch imaginable. If you're going from BlackBerry or Droid, however, the differences will be more pronounced.

Rene and I go over how cloud services like Gmail can help you get your contacts over (and provide push email, contacts, and calendars!) and App Store apps like Kik Free - (iTunes link], Waze [Free - iTunes link] and others can help replace things like BBM and Google Navigation.

If you're used to rooting on Android or themes on BlackBerry we'll also introduce you to Jailbreak and the new ThemeIt store for iPhone. And if you need any extra help we have Verizon iPhone Forums just waiting for you as well as our TiPb Guides and TiPb Tips sections with tons more info.

So are you ready to make the switch? Watch the video above and let us know how it's going for you in the comments!

DefCon 2: ZuneDude Gets iPod Touch!

Steven Smith, infamous for actually buying a Zune has -- Oh, wait... editor's correcting me here... seems he... what? -- actually buying a Zune and tattooing it's irrelevant logo and nonsensical branding onto his body (seriously?) -- has broken up with the derivative little mp3 player of his affection, and splashed the sordid aftermath all over the intertubes.

For Smith, the bottom line was lack of innovation, current and future, in the face of Apple and Sony, and more: Smith thinks Ballmer is getting ready to bail.

Yeahbuwhy are we covering this? It's a warning people. Smith's special form of... er... product enthusiasm may soon be coming our way. See, some non-briefed third party retailer slipped up and sold Smith an iPod Touch. Smith tells iPhoneSavior:

It's super thin and does some really neat stuff like tilting to go into cover flow. I also like watching movies on it. I can go anywhere to get iPod accessories, that's not the case with Zune stuff in Iowa.

Brilliant, salestard, that's only one short step away from an iPhone! Sound red alert and prepare to duck and cover! It's Switchpocolypse now-ish!

See Smith's "it's not me, it's you" video after the break. (Warning, occasional language and fanboy heartache).
