The iPhone arrives on Verizon Wireless

Techstination feature for Thursday, February 10, 2011

      The iPhone arrives on Verizon Wireless.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    AT&T’s long running exclusive hold on the iPhone in the U.S. has ended.   Rival Verizon Wireless is now selling the iPhone 4.   Existing Verizon customers were able to get a jump ordering the phones last week.   Now the doors are open to all.   Whether AT&T or Verizon is better for you depends upon how good signals are where you live, work and travel to.   AT&T’s network allows you to use the data and voice networks at the same time.   Verizon’s doesn’t.   Verizon has added a mobile hotspot feature.    The company’s Brenda Raney….

It allows you to use the iPhone 4 as a modem and then connect up to five other devices over WiFi.   And that feature is 20 dollars a month for 2 gigs.”

The winners here are consumers…who will have a choice ….and, of course, Apple.    You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
