We've received numerous reports from readers indicating that they cannot activate their new iPhone 4S when purchased through AT&T. This has been confirmed by an AppAdvice employee as well as Apple Insider. The issue occurs when a user attempts to activate service on the iPhone specifically or through iTunes.
AT&T and Verizon are continuing their back and forth to gain new iPhone 4 customers. This time, it’s AT&T, which recently released their second iPhone 4 ad since losing exclusivity in February. But don't worry Verizon fans: they have their own ad too.
Apple’s iOS 4.3 update could be available as early as tomorrow morning, according to news first reported by The Loop. The build, which Apple originally said wouldn’t be available until Friday, March 11, is compatible with the upcoming iPad 2, along with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, and original iPad.
AT&T has announced it will offer a personal hotspot feature for its iPhone 4, effective with the iOS 4.3 release. This will give AT&T subscribers a service that has been available on the Verizon iPhone 4 since its release last month.
The Verizon iPhone and AT&T iPhone are basically the same; there are only minor differences. Because of that, it is difficult to say which one is better, since a lot depends on where the user lives and works, as well as what types of services are most important to them. Keeping that in mind, the folks at Ars Technica attempted to compare both handsets and determine which was better.
No talking while using data, minimal international usability, lack of being able to have a conference call with more than three people, etc. These limitations of the Verizon iPhone may turn you off, but are they deal breakers?
