“To our millions of customers, who never stopped believing this day would come” – Verizon iPhone commercial.
Verizon iPhone has been released.
There are a few difference between Verizon and AT&T’s iPhone hardware and features. This is due to the fact that they both run different types of networks. Verizon uses CDMA and AT&T has a GSM network. Some other differences are listed below:
- You cannot talk and use the internet simultaneously using Verizon iPhone. This is because Verizon’s CDMA based network only allows one of these tasks. At&t takes the cake here, since you can do both with an At&t iPhone.
- The Verizon iPhone acts as a mobile hotspot.
- Volume and mute buttons are located slightly lower on the Verizon iPhone.
- Webpages on a Verizon iPhone load “arguably faster” than At&t.
