Verizon will be taking iPhone 4S pre-orders starting tomorrow
0. phoneArena 06 Oct 2011, 01:32 posted on
Verizon has placed a large iPhone 4S graphic on the main page of their web site, which leads to their landing page with some basic info about the new device. From there, you can enter in your email address to be notified when the pre-order is live (which will be at 3:01am Eastern - Oct. 7th) and can also check if your current Verizon plan is eligible for an upgrade.

iPhone 5 isn't coming for a while. There's always something new and better down the pipeline. For now iPhone 4S is top of the line you won't regret it.

If u want top of the line get the nexus prime in 3-4 weeks. If u want an iphone 4s just get the iphone 4 it'll save you some money just for a better camera.

if you want top of the line wait for the 5th one which is rumored to be ready for beggining to 2012
nexus prime and all android are always outdated by the time they come out and they have a talent for crashing for no reason, draining battery faster than you can think and people always have high expectations tours androids but by the time the actually come out they are dissapointed and already cheering on the next one which is the one that is supposed to be the ""quality/better than iphone"" you want quality - go w iphone, you want quantity go w droid but dont forget to get a few battery packs for droid wont last half a day even if u dont use them and i speak of personal experience, anybody trying to defend android is just plain bs-ing! anyway! get the iphone 4 used in craiglist in the meanwhile or definately wait a bit, iphone 4s is not worth an upgrade yet

I will half to agree with manny on many things except, the iphone 4s does pack a lot of new features and hardware that the 4 doesn't. If new internals isn't enough for you, get the iphone 4 and wait for the 5. If you want what the 4 should've been get the 4s. Either way, it's a great choice. Hooray no issues.

I can't wait until the droid bots come in and destroy this post. Let's just say this ahead of time. You cannot compare 30 different droid phones to one iphone. The iphone will beat any one phone in the Android OS hands down. The only phone that will even compare at all with the Iphone is the Bionic, which is truly the most advanced phone to date and still it doesn't have the software to support the hardware. Tisk tisk...... And let's put this out there too. The amount of Androids with issues far beat how many IOS devices have them. It's funny because the Droid Bots will say that you can't say that because of the amount of different Androids so it's not fair because there's only one Iphone but if you mention that the only reason why there are more Android sales than Iphones is the fact that there are over 30 androids, then the Droidbots get all pissed off and rampid...Talk about double standard....... No android will ever be as prepared or stable as the Iphone. And somebody said that the reason they release the Android phones is the fact that they want to give the customers more of a choice...No it's because when an Android phone comes out, two months later the sales tank, so they have to come out with a new one, prepared or not. Anyone have a valid argument? Take a look at how many Ginderbread issues there are after it came out and you can expect the same with Iced Cream Sandwich. Please only open your mouth if you know what you are talking about. I take calls all day and 90% of them are android issues. Does anyone have a reason for that aside from the obvious fact that it's unstable and sucks and one last thing, you can't bring up the fact that Android's have the same features that the Iphone does because they don't unless you download some third party support for it and even still it's not as good. At least when you get a feature with IOS it works, it's good, and you don't have to rely on joe crack head to release an app for it. And as far as siri releasing a beta, how are you gonna crack on Apple for releasing prematurely when Android does it everytime. BTW I just posted this incase a Droid Bot comes on! For every IOS owner. You are very smart and will have a reliable phone.

Hi there ibot. I sell phones and have for quite a while now and I can tell you the main reason people buy iphones these days are not becasue of how powerful or smooth running they are but instead they have become a social status thing/ fashion accessory or that people are mislead, by the blind followers of apple, to think its the best or only smart phone. When I actually sit down with people thinking of getting an iphone and show them all their choices in phones and explain to customers what they can't do with an iphone id say 4 out of 5 people tend to not want the phone anymore. The other 1 person is so caught up in my earlier assesment of why people buy the iphone or I recommend the iphone to them because they already have a mac, ipad, and ipod. As for my Incredible 2 I have had no issues with it after the 2.3 update. It actually fixed all the issues I had with 2.2. Oh and before someone spouts off calling me a droid fanboy I also own a BB and am looking into getting a wp7 phone as well. Just my .02

Im glad that you like your Incredible 2. I really am, I'm suprised you haven't got the red X of doom by where the signal bars are, which is a known issue. I'm sure if you told customers what was wrong with all the droid phones too 5 out of 5 wouldn't buy them. But again I'm glad that at least one of the droid's work in the world. The good thing about apple is that you don't have to wait for an update for it to work.

I'm hurt that you would insinuate that I don't explain the pros and con's to people about the phones. Oh and your right the iphone doesn't need an update to work, apple's updates make your phone slow and barely usable. ex i3g/s when the i4 came out. That was a fun one to explain to customers.
22. NVPMOTHAF (Posts: 78; Member since: 28 Sep 2011)
The IOS4 never made my 3gs stop working. It still works fine to date. If that's true, which again my phone still works fine, 2.3 did the same to the droid x and the fascinate and the droid 2.

Anyways thanx for being part of the team man. It feels great talking with another carrier dude.

currently have a droid 2 and was waiting for the iphone announcement after reviewing the specs I must say iphone is a solid built phone and no doubt the quality of the built is awesome. However I'm just going to wait for the nexus prime because I love my google gps navigator, I love how I can swap out the battery on my droid 2 on the go. And no I can charge my battery while using my phone as I have a seperate dedicated battery charger. Its basic features like these that iphone doesn't have I want and there are other ones but these are the most basic. I was going to go to sprint and grab the sg2 but after hearing the problems on that phone on sprint I got turned off. Even though verizon costs more money you pay for whatt you get. Nexus prime here I come.

I am a former android user and current Verizon Iphone 4 user. I love everything they have done to the device except they left out LTE. We are almost in 2012 and my motto is NO LTE NO THANKS. Where I live, vacation and do business travel all have nicely built out LTE markets. I am not waiting another year. Hotspot on 3G is just ok and I do not want a MIFI or something else to tack onto my bill. As a Macbook Pro user I really do NOT want to go back to Android (for synch between apple products) but I want my LTE. Nexus Prime? Razr HD? who knows. Either way Rest in peace Steve Jobs. You were quite the pioneer.

I will be buying the iPhone 4S on Verizon. I have been a loyal Verizon customer for nearly 11 years. Yep, its a long time. I wish that Apple could have magically made a LTE chip that was just as slim and battery conserving as the 3G one that we will find in the 4S but you don't always get what you want. I wish the screen was larger but I can't do anything about that. The most important thing is that the phone WORKS. I'm not going to get a billion force closes in one day and fifty random reboots. I am really sick of Android and all the crap that I have put up with. iPhone 4S HERE I COME!!!

I am currently an HTC Droid Incredible user. Love the phone and all the apps. Two complaints. Battery life and Outlook/music sync. I have an ITunes library with about 150GB of music and I have to go through many steps to put music on my Droid. I will be pre-ordering my IPhone 4s tonight on Verizon.

iPhone 4s on Verizon is nice, but I will buy a Motorola Droid Razr when it comes out.

Verizon has a micro 4g sim in stock, which could intale an iphone 5 coming pretty quickly.

The galaxy 10.1 is the only device that take it?
