The peeps over at Verizon clearly agree with me, as Engadget have landed their hands on a shot of their upcoming range of data plans, and, as you can see, it’s unlimited or nothing for all future smartphones… Read More

    According to just about every publication under the Sun, and possibly a few publications outside of the solar system, today is the day that Verizon Wireless will announce the availability of the iPhone on its wonderful network.

  • Rumor: Verizon to end early upgrade and "New Every Two" programs

    According to a leaked Verizon Training slide that recently landed in Android Central’s virtual lap, ol’ Big Red will be putting to bed both their early upgrade program and their “New Every Two” program come January 16. The early upgrade program allowed customers to upgrade their handset in months 13-20 of their contract, rather than having to wait out the full 24 months. Read More

  • Calamity strikes iPhone debut: network fails, Steve Jobs demands people close their laptops and turn off Wi-Fi

    As Steve Jobs was waiting (and waiting and waiting…) for a Web site to load on the new iPhone 4, a person in the crowd shouted “Try Verizon!” Awkward. For the record, Apple now blames the insane amount of Wi-Fi access points (500+) in the demo hall for the network fail. The fun and excitement of being live! Read More

  • Verizon Wireless and Skype slated for a duet at MWC

    I’ll admit that I love me some Skype. I get to call and video chat with all my buddies from overseas without hefty fees, except I was accustomed to doing it only where Wi-Fi was available.

    The Motorola Droid, on Verizon Wireless, is, by all accounts, pretty OK. That’s fair to say, no? Yes, I believe it is.
