Verizon and AT&T hold hands for new Apple iPhone commercial

Verizon and AT&T hold hands for new Apple iPhone commercial
Outside of the mobile Hotspot on Verizon's version of the Apple iPhone 4, and a few minor cosmetic differences, both GSM and CDMA models are the same thing. That is the gist of the latest commercial for Apple's touchscreen device. Face Time, web browsing, the App Store, reading a selection from iBooks-it is all the same regardless of which of the two carriers you select. The tag line is "Two is better than one" and for Apple, this is certainly true when discussing revenue stream.

Enjoy the peacefulness of the truce that currently exists between AT&T and Verizon because you know that eventually it will degrade into a "Our Apple iPhone is better than your Apple iPhone" mentality. It's just the nature of the beast.

Haven't we all seen the videos of VZW kicking AT&T's but in web surfing on the iPhone? Come on Apple I'm tired of the lies you spreed in your commercials...

For once it was a commercial that didn't spark competition and actually encouraged a truce...but yet in still kids like you have to find away to incorporate why one is better than the other. can you give that a rest for one post? damn.

It's blurry because it was recorded by a person who saw it on tv.

I don't really think there will be that much of a conflict between Verizon and AT&T iPhone users. There's really not much to argue over. The real conflict will be w/ Android. I'm excited to see what happens between with Android and iPhone not only in Verizon but in general in the U.S. too.

Why does it have to be a conflict? The point is to find the smartphone that works the best for you. If you have an Android phone and you love it, it doesn't bother me because I have an iPhone. I swear it's like a Twilight competition. Are you Team Jacob or Team Edward...

Why dont you go somewhere else and cry. Am I creating the conflict?? You're replying to me as if I in some way have something to do with what's going to happen from February onwards. There will be a conflict whether or not you like it. People have been for years predicting what would happen if iPhone arrived on multiple carriers. Many say that there will be a huge decrease in Android sales and others are saying that nothing will change and that iPhone is dead. Well now we can stop speculating and actually see what happens. If that doesn't interest you even a little then I don't know why you're even on this site. And yes, fan flares will be a side effect of iPhone on Verizon but that's not the conflict I was referring to. Too bad there's not a whole bunch we can do about that.

Chill out... no one was crying or accusing you of anything

Dude, chill. If anyone is crying it's you. The biggest thing is, I wasn't even directing my comment directly at your response since this has been an argument that has been going on for years now. I've just always thought it was pointless. I'm sorry you got so offended. Hugs buddy! TEAM IPHONE!

Team Iphone and Team Edward!

its going to murder android sales. thats what really really sucks.

19. Moet007 unregistered

I believe it wont hurt Android sales in the long run...If anything it will cause Android to step their game up even more guess who benefits from that? We the customer...we'll have newer and better products faster, since these 2 platforms hate to be outdone by each other.

Looks more like it's an Apple ad more than a Verizon and AT&T ad.
