Verizon iPhone – No thanks!

 

Before you drop AT&T iPhone 4 for the Verizon iPhone 4 you may want to think twice.


1. Verizon iPhone will not handle data and voice simultaneously.

2. While using the Verizon iPhone as a hotspot you will not be able to accept or place calls.

3. Verizon plans and features may cost you way more than AT&T.

4. If you switch from AT&T to Verizon you may have to pay an early termination fees to AT&T, activation fees to Verizon and taxes. Is it worth it?

5. Verizon will be hit with all of these iPhones clogging their network and AT&T warns that Verizon service may be “slow”. We will see.

 

*I’m not pro AT&T but I just think that the Verizon iPhone had too much hype for nothing. The iPhone 4 is old news.

OpenAppMkt (Open App Market)

If you are looking for alternative applications for your iPhone, you may want to add Openappmkt to your home screen. Openappmkt is similar to the App Store but the apps do not have to be approved by Apple first. You will find some great unapproved by Apple applications here. The apps are legal and will not void your warranty (HTML 5). As seen on Attack of the Show (AOTS).

You will find apps for jailbroken (Cydia) and non-jailbroken iPhones. Visit http://openappmkt.com on your iPhone and follow the prompts on the screen. You will add the icon/bookmark ‘+’ to your home screen and you’re done. Simply visit the  market and chose from your favorite apps. The icons/apps will appear on your home screen as they usually do with App Store apps.

Note: Android support is said to be coming soon.
