The iPhone 4, no matter if it’s purchased from Verizon or AT&T is an interesting device gifted with all the features and capabilities that you can think of. If you decide to purchase this smartphone you will benefit from ease of use as well as from the possibility to use Internet capabilities via the in-built iOS web browser known as Safari. The other good news is that with an iPhone in hand you will be able to visit the Apple App Store and find all the apps that are of interest for your activity. Not to mention that you will be able to use iTunes which gives you the chance to do almost everything from organizing easier the multimedia content of your iPhone to backing up the smartphone’s content on your computer.
About the iPhone 4 made available on Verizon in 2010 I can tell you that it was long awaited because customers were feeling limited to having to choose AT&T as carrier because no other option was available. Besides the difference in carrier services, there aren’t many differences between an AT&T and a Verizon iPhone 4. One of the differences that do exist is related to the antenna that on the iPhone 4 for Verizon was redesigned for CDMA. However, the redesign of the antenna hasn’t led to better reception, so the Verizon iPhone 4 will still make you go through the death grip issue. Another difference refers to the position of the physical buttons included in the design and is extremely easy to notice. You will see that the mute switch and the volume buttons are 2mm lower on the Verizon version than on the AT&T iPhone. You will also notice that the iPhone 4 for Verizon lacks the FCC and clearance marks that can be found on the AT&T GSM version of iPhone 4.
When it comes to software differences you will notice them only if your AT&T iPhone is still running on iOS 4.2.1. That’s because the Verizon iPhone 4 came preloaded with iOS 4.2.6 which makes available personal hotspot capabilities. However, if you have updated your iPhone 4 from AT&T to iOS 4.3 you won’t notice that difference anymore. When it comes to apps supported and syncing capabilities, there are no differences either because both carrier versions of the smartphone offer the same capabilities.
About call clarity I can tell you that it’s good on both the Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4, but in certain cases the Verizon version tends to be just a little better. However, when it comes to conference calls the two smartphones fail to act identically. For instance, only the AT&T version allows you to end conference calls separately.
