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.

Dismal Sales Killed Microsoft KIN



Did you know that Verizon had Microsoft’s KIN phones for sale a few months ago? No….well neither did the rest of America! It is rumored that Verizon only sold just over 500 KIN phones. There are other reports that KIN sales were greater than 1000. Either way that is horrible! As you know Microsoft has already eliminated the KIN. Microsoft’s is now focusing on making the Windows Phone a success.

Do you think the release of the iPhone 4, the EVO 4G and the upcoming release of the Droid X sold at Verizon had something to do with the poor sales? The KIN was supposed to attract the younger crowd that wants to share their experiences and thoughts via social networks. I guess a few teens actually fell for KIN’s ads on television and just had to have one. The rest of the teens are saving up their allowance and eagerly waiting for the new Droid.

Maybe Microsoft can sell all those leftover KIN phones to BP so they can fill in the giant failure hole spewing oil. By this time next year National Geographic will have pictures of kids in Third World Countries using the KIN as a play toy.


iPhone coming to Verizon in January?



According to the latest Bloomberg report; Verizon Wireless should start selling Apple’s iPhone in January. With the release of the new iPhone 4, this could be a smart move. Even with all of the negative feedback lately on the antenna issues and shattered screens, people still want an iPhone.  AT&T is all that stands  in the way of huge masses of people from switching to an iPhone. The bad part is that users will have to choose from the Droid X or the iPhone 4 which are both great phones.

Apple introduced FaceTime at the WWDC10. Many people cannot use FaceTime because their family and friends are on different carriers who do not offer the iPhone 4. If the rumor is true and Verizon does sell the iPhone 4 this will be a dream come true for many.  AT&T will lose a large percentage of their customers who will migrate over to Verizon. We will see what happens. There have been too many Verizon/iPhone rumors to count.

Keep your fingers crossed!


LG Ally: Worth a Second Look



With the launch of the HTC EVO, HTC Aria and the announcement of Droid X coming soon, LG’s Ally was overlooked. There are some great deals going on for the Ally. From what I have seen on reviews and feedback, the phone scores pretty high ranks. Now that the Ally has huge price reductions, it think it is worth a second look.

The Ally is only $29.99 at Bestbuy right now. The Ally is also only $49.99 at Verizon and they are Buy One Get One Free. Both of these deal require the usual activation charges and a two-year contract with Verizon. The LG Ally is an Android phone and would work great for those on a budget who cannot afford an EVO, Nexus One or Aria. If you are already with Verizon or looking to switch to Verizon for a new Android phone then this is a great opportunity.
