Summer’s approaching so out with the black and in with the white. Who’s copping their White iPhone 4 today? Retail pricing for the white device is $199 for the 16GB and $299 for 32GB (both with 2-year contract agreements). The white iPhone is available on both iPhone carriers AT&T and Verizon. Go get yours now!
I got AT&T and our service isn’t THAT bad…Either way, Verizon hit AT&T with that ether when they aired this commercial during the Super Bowl last night. AT&T’s CEO better respond quick. I want a full mixtape of diss songs or at least a commercial or two firing back. #CellPhoneBeef FTW
For all you Apple people out there, the iPhone 4 will be dropping in white most likely at the end of this month, around February 27th. There was a delay because of an issue with the flash causing pictures to be blurry but it has been fixed now.
Just a simple thanks from Verizon to their loyal customers who waited around and had faith that the red check would be able to have the prestigious Apple iPhone (4) on their network one day…
Jon Stewart does more celebrating about the iPhone being out of the exclusive hands of AT&T than celebrating about Verizon’s acquisition of the iPhone 4. I have AT&T and I don’t think the service is THAT bad. I mean, once you have left T-Mobile, it can’t get any worse.
Verizon users can celebrate! Your beloved cell phone service (I’m a AT&T dude myself BUT am #TeamBlackberry) will finally get their dirty little hands on selling iPhones. For complete coverage, hit up BGR. To purchase / reserve your Verizon iPhone 4 hit up Verizon’s website.
Haha funny stuff for all you iPhone 4 stans out there…
Oh Steve Jobs…Apple made these two videos to show that their iPhone 4 isn’t the only device that can suffer from service loss by griping the bottom left of the phones. Above is them showing the Verizon Droid X with the problem and also the Nokia N97 which can be seen after the jump. Maybe we should all just settle for a BlackBerry or HTC Evo.
If you’re one of those few people who need a new cell phone and are stuck between choosing the iPhone 4 or the HTC Evo device – this video is for you!
For everyone rocking with the new iPhone 4, you’ve probably noticed that you lose service if you grip the phone too hard. In addressing this issue, Steve Jobs feeds you Apple fanboys and girls some bullshit saying that their free software their releasing in a few weeks will fix everything. Read the whole Apple press release for yourself below:
Dear iPhone 4 Users,
The iPhone 4 has been the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. It has been judged by reviewers around the world to be the best smartphone ever, and users have told us that they love it. So we were surprised when we read reports of reception problems, and we immediately began investigating them. Here is what we have learned.
To start with, gripping almost any mobile phone in certain ways will reduce its reception by 1 or more bars. This is true of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, as well as many Droid, Nokia and RIM phones. But some users have reported that iPhone 4 can drop 4 or 5 bars when tightly held in a way which covers the black strip in the lower left corner of the metal band. This is a far bigger drop than normal, and as a result some have accused the iPhone 4 of having a faulty antenna design.
At the same time, we continue to read articles and receive hundreds of emails from users saying that iPhone 4 reception is better than the iPhone 3GS. They are delighted. This matches our own experience and testing. What can explain all of this?
We have discovered the cause of this dramatic drop in bars, and it is both simple and surprising.
Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong. Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don’t know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.
To fix this, we are adopting AT&T’s recently recommended formula for calculating how many bars to display for a given signal strength. The real signal strength remains the same, but the iPhone’s bars will report it far more accurately, providing users a much better indication of the reception they will get in a given area. We are also making bars 1, 2 and 3 a bit taller so they will be easier to see.
We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula. Since this mistake has been present since the original iPhone, this software update will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.
We have gone back to our labs and retested everything, and the results are the same- the iPhone 4’s wireless performance is the best we have ever shipped. For the vast majority of users who have not been troubled by this issue, this software update will only make your bars more accurate. For those who have had concerns, we apologize for any anxiety we may have caused.
As a reminder, if you are not fully satisfied, you can return your undamaged iPhone to any Apple Retail Store or the online Apple Store within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.
We hope you love the iPhone 4 as much as we do.
Thank you for your patience and support.
