Verizon and the iPhone

So AT&T is finally going to lose it's stranglehold on the much coveted iPhone; a device that by all accounts is probably going to cure world hunger some day.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Verizon will soon be getting Apple's prized device.

For what seems to be such a monumental occasion, especially for Verizon, the first installment seems rather underwhelming (I'm going to go out on a whim and say it's probably going to get significantly more intense as we approach the launch day).

Here's the commercial they've decided to run to kick start the campaign:

I actually am somewhat of a fan of all of this. Mostly because Verizon announced that it was going give existing customers the option to get the device a full week before everyone else. All this is shocking to me, because most providers are out to get you to sign on the dotted line, forget about you, and secure more customers. Growth at all costs.

But before I go on praising the whole thing too much, I'd also be doing whatever I could to keep people hyped and happy on getting a phone that's about a year old now too.

Let's see how they handle the situation when all their users sign up for the iPhone 4, with the 5th gen set to come out in June.

I'm happy with my Motorola RAZR. T-9 and sexting made simple.
