Verizon iPhone for Mom and Dad

Verizon iPhone On January 3rd, I talked a little about the iPhone coming to Verizon in this post: http://www.mommybknowsbest.com/new-to-2011/. Now that AT&T’s exclusive contract with Apple’s iPhone is up, guess what……the iPhone will be for sale with Verizon as soon as February 10, 2011. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, good planning Verizon!

The iPhone will be the newest version, the 4G, I currently have the iPod verison, (sans phone capability) I really wish that the iPod had the option to just turn on phone capabilities, but I understand that would boost the cost as well. With a 2 year plan and data pak (required) Verizon is offering the iPhone for $199.99 plus tax. If you are currently a Verizon customer you can reserve your iPhone before they are available to the public using this link: http://ecrm.vzwshop.com/2011_ECRM/consumer/2011_Program_CES/1101_device/?LANGCODE=EN

Personally being a parent I love my iPod because it has so many applications that Miss A can learn from and have fun with too, there are apps to teach her how to draw letters, sound out words, perform match equations and more, plus she’s learning hand-eye-coordination as well as how to use modern technology. I keep her play limited because if I didn’t she’d be on it all day long.

Angry BirdsFor me there are great apps that allow me to create schedules, reminders of important dates we have, check my email from anywhere and even some great recipe apps too, not to mention a few minutes of Angry Birds to give me a little “zone out time” you know what I’m talking about!

I do wish the iPhone was a little cheaper because it would be nice not to have to carry both my iPod and my phone with me, but maybe in time.

What do you think about Verizon getting the iPhone?? Are you excited? Could care less? Would you buy one?

  • I have the iPhone 4 through AT&T and before that I had the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, etc. I can’t imagine owning a different phone. I believe I would be lost without my iPhone. It helps me with work, blogging, social media, consulting, etc. Love it.

  • I would love an iPhone, but I don’t see it happening any time soon. I’m with T-Mobile and have a very simple, internet-ready phone with email, FB, and twitter. That’s it. My kids don’t understand why my phone doesn’t have games on it. LOL

  • i have been waiting for the iphone to come to verizon ever since it’s release with AT&T but i was a verizon faithful and held out for 3 years waiting, waiting and more waiting until finally i couldn’t wait any longer so i ended up getting a droid incredible back in Sept 10. however, before i upgraded my phone to a droid i did ask “will the i phone be coming to verizon?” because if it’s coming then i will wait until then….their answer “we don’t know”. i did the droid upgrade because i really wanted a smartphone real badly. i do love my droid and it really does everything an iphone can do but i really would prefer to have the latter. maybe it’s just the name??? the brand?? it’s like buying a car…honda’s are very good cars but a bmw would be so much better. reality is, i have an issue with not being content with what i have. there i said it : ).
