iPhone 4G & Verizon – A Match Made in Heaven

iPhone 4G & Verizon – A Match Made in Heaven

I see the match-up of the iPhone 4G and Verizon as quite possibly the best combination of a mobile device and a phone carrier.

The iPhone, although it has lost a bit a market share since the onslaught of data phones, is still the reigning king when it comes to the mobile devices.

The iPad might be the only mobile device to knock it off it’s throne, but that is a long time from now, if ever…

But the iPhone is a dominant mobile phone in so many ways, plus it is the leader of the data phone pack.

Every other device on the market has followed the design and concept of the iPhone (look at the HTC and Nexus One’s on the market, yes… the iPhone was a big influence).

So if you had to make the iPhone better than it already is, what are some things you would do to it?

Give it a faster web browser (iPhone 4G) would be my #1 choice of upgrades. After all, just like my computer, when I turn on my iPhone, I’m heading almost instantly to the web.

So the iPhone 4G concept is a huge milestone because it makes what is already an amazing phone – better!

Now comes the phone carrier side of the equation.

Let me ask you this – when you hear people talk about AT&T, what are the common responses?

Do you ever hear people praising AT&T for things like service, data network stability, customer service, pricing, etc…?

Me neither – and typically, whenever I hear people talk about AT&T it is usually in negative connotations.

Verizon has a much better reputation for quality, service, and data stability.

So when you want to have your phone with carrier that has a reputation of excellent data networks, strong connections, and great service people would almost immediately agree that Verizon has that kind of reputation.

So to me, the perfect match made in heaven is the iPhone 4G running on the Verizon network.

Does it get much better than that in the data / mobile device world?

  • $75,000 – plus a 1% commission on every iPhone sold globally, plus a private jet if I achieve 1million views of this article.

    Not bad huh?

    you are basing this all on the reputation created by the verizon vs att maps of supposed coverage commercial. they were extremely effective of creating this idea, but i've never had a problem with poor service of connections in my years with at&t. verizon will also probably find a way to control the iphone with their terrible services and software like v cast

    You are also forgetting that Verizon is STILL unable to perform a basic function of the iPhone: Talking on the phone while using other apps. So to me, putting the iPhone on Verizon now is just as bad an idea as it would have been when it first came out. Verizon costs way more per month as it is and then add to it the inability to truly multitask, it’s not worth it. Plus, AT&T has given me just as good service as Verizon around my area, so I see no need to handcuff the iPhone with a subpar network that Steve Jobs has already had a plethora of issues with the first time around. Verizon can keep dreaming, but if the iPhone goes to them, the days of the iPhone as king may well be over.

    I can’t believe this. Look at all these trolls in the comments, you’d think there was a bridge around here. Will you all get over yourselves? AT&T sucks ass, end of dicsussion. My iPhone drops so many calls it puts my beautiful phone to shame. Signal is always being lost as I browse the web, downloads take forever, so on and so forth. Please phone gods, take thy mighty bolt and strike AT&T down so that Verizon may take the iPhone. I could go on forever about how shitty my service is, but I would need a new webpage. A Verizon iPhone would just be faster and all around more amazing. Apple work out a deal or something, I can’t take it anymore (I’m talking to you Mr.Jobs). Let’s pray for this summer’s iPhone: May God have mercy on our nerdy souls.

    Alot of you seem to be on the Verizon bandwagon and that's fine, however what some people seem to forget is if everyone and their mother jumps on the VZ bandwagon
    do you really think they're network is going to handle the iPhone, with all of the new incresed traffic, seamlessly without a hitch AND it's gonig to be twice the speed of AT&T?
    I THINK NOT. AT&T has 3yr. lead in experience than any other network out there when it comes to dealing specifically with the iPhone. They have been through the up's and downs and all the other BS associated with supporting the iPhone. Do we really want to wait 3yrs for another carrier (verizon) to come around and us (the subscribers) to go through the riga-ma-roll again? I know I don't. My experience with AT&T at first may of been questionable but now my experience with AT&T has been great so I'm sticking with them.
    Besides, if everyone flocks to Verizon and I stay with AT&T the service will be that much better. I know some of you are thinking it's all going to LTE anyway.
    Yes, that is correct and AT&T still have more experience with the new LTE technology. Can you hear me now?…
