Verizon iPhone 4 ad teases its capabilities: you can even do calls now
Now that the Verizon iPhone 4 is shipping as we speak, Verizon has decided to talk up its precious new gadget. And how does the carrier intend to do that? Well, that's a simple one - by mocking AT&T's network.

In the video below, the Big Red iPhone 4 is displayed in all its beauty, and then the inevitable question pops up - "can we make uninterrupted calls now"? A hand reaches out, and guess who's that - it's the Verizon man, and he, with a slightly noticeable mischievous smile says "Yes. I can hear you now".

That's classic stuff, really.

Ok so its, yes. I can hear you know! Phonearena you need help get a clue. And that phone number gets you no where. Its a 555 number. Call it! Sometimes I really wonder about this site.

You do realize 555 is the area code used in all movies\tv shows...its the generic number they always give it.

@marcus we know ppl know it's a verizon commercial. So why is GW complaining that phonearena needs help and to get a clue? All they did was post a video made by someone else

I was not saying anything about commercial. I was pointing out they, had spelled know intead of now. They had also put the phone number thats on iphone during commercial saying its att and its not. Since my post they have since corrected the speeling and removed the number from there article. I love the commercial! Its cool the test man made a cameo.

And in your own post about Phonearena's poor spelling/grammar use, you've
1. mispelled instead as "intead"
2. omitted the apostrophe from "that's" and "it's" multiple times
3. mispelled spelling as "speeling"
4. incorrectly used "there" instead of "their"

Ironic.

Sad that here in the Baltimore/Washington and surrounding areas north of Baltimore Verizon is horrible with dead zones and complaints. I guess unless I move I will never understand peoples' infactuation with "Big Red" since even Sprint works better here.

Sure, you can make a voice call, but can you make a voice call and transfer data at the same time?

r u saying that making a call on your cell PHONE is less important than being able to make a call that breaks up or fails while you're on youtube watching a dog lick itself?

LOL, let's not forget that the ATT network wasnt the problem with the iPhone...The horribly placed ANTENNA was! It was APPLE's fault, so I dont know why Verizon is attacking ATT. Just wait till the complaints of poor sound quality and dropped calls start rolling into Verizon now. Also their customer service scores are sure to drop when Verizon reps start telling iPhone owners "sorry you have to take your iPhone to Apple to get serviced, also if you didn't purchase their $70 warranty you will have to pay for any tech support. have a nice day!"

They attack AT&T because they're the only logical target according to them. (Not that I agree with them) If AT&T with all its researchers and millions of dollars couldn't predict the effect (negative or otherwise) of the iPhone on their customer service and their network, I don't know what makes VZW think they're ready. You can never be ready for the rotten apple to spoil the company.

actually VZW changed teh antenna aspect of the phone to be better with the cdma services so there will not be any dropped calls also you have the options of getting the regular insurance from ausurion which will charge you a 99 detectable and also includes a one year warrenty yes they have the options of purchasing the apple care ins as well! awww too bad soo sad!!! and ATT attacks VZW first...

I did not realize I would find comedy in this article. Your comments have been entertaining. Maybe we can talk about phones, technology etc.. Now?
