Apple posts Verizon upgrade eligibility, plans... then removes them

Apple today posted a Verizon Wireless upgrade eligibility checker on their site along with voice/data/messaging plans -- only to pull them down a short time later. While up the information seemed to confirm what we have been hearing about the data plans where there will be unlimited for $29.99 a month and the option to throw the hot spot on there with 2GB extra for an additional $20 a month.

Voice

  • 450 minutes $39.99/month
  • 900 minutes with unlimited to 5 selected people (any network) $59.99/month
  • Unlimited $69.99/month

Data

  • Unlimited iPhone $29.99/month
  • Unlimited iPhone + 2GB tethering/Personal 3G Hotspot $49.99/month

Verizon reveals details on iPhone Wi-Fi personal hotspot pricing

Verizon Wireless Executive Director of Corporate Communications Brenda Raney said today that Verizon would be charging customers $20 per month for the iPhone Wi-Fi personal hotspot feature. That's on top of their regular data plan.

The extra $20 buys you an additional 2gb of bandwidth for the hotspot to use. AT&T subscribers on the other hand currently pay the same $20 per month for a wired tethering plan, however they aren't allotted any additional bandwidth despite paying extra for the feature and it only allows for tethering one device via USB. The only major drawback with Verizon is you'll be paying an additional $20 per gigabyte in overages -- ouch!

Verizon confirms $30 unlimited iPhone data plan -- for now

The Verizon iPhone will -- for now -- have an unlimited $30 data plan option according to what Verizon COO Lowell McAdam told the Wall Street Journal:

“I’m not going to shoot myself in the foot,” he said. Not offering an unlimited plan would put up a barrier for customers who might otherwise switch from AT&T, he said. The country’s No. 2 carrier still has millions of subscribers grandfathered into unlimited plans they signed up for before AT&T switched to tiered pricing last summer.

Apple airs joint AT&T and Verizon iPhone commercial -Waltz

Apple has begun airing a new AT&T and Verizon double-punch iPhone commercial called Waltz which touts "Two is Better than one". It shows off all the features and apps we've grown to know and love throughout Apple's previously AT&T-only US iPhone commercials, side by side, zooming in on one or the other to highlight the identical user experiences. Just as revealing is that the differences are not mentioned. No hint at reception, data speed, simultaneous voice and data, international roaming, etc.

Obviously both AT&T and Verizon will be competing for iPhone customers come February 10 but just as obviously Apple wins either way.

UPDATE: Official Apple video after the break!

New "Universal Bumpers" now fit Verizon iPhone, available at Apple Stores?

Alerio shared his video with us, showing what looks like a new "Universal Bumper" designed to fit both the existing GSM/AT&T iPhone and the new CDMA/Verizon iPhone with its slightly redesigned antenna and downward-shifted volume controls.

Just wanted to share a video of the new Universal Bumper for the Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4. Picked one up today at my local Apple store!

He says the differences aren't many but they were enough that Apple's old bumpers wouldn't fit. The TiPb iPhone Accessory Store is keeping their own list of compatible Verizon iPhone cases (yeah, cheap plug!) but its good to see Verizon iPhone buyers will have some additional choices available come February 10.
