Verizon releases first iPhone ad

By Hayley Tsukayama

Verizon released its first, extremely dramatic, ad for the iPhone 4 to YouTube, thanking all the Verizon faithful for waiting so patiently.

The words "iPhone 4" appear under the Apple logo for about a second near the end of the spot, but the voiceover never mentions the iPhone and the ad never shows customers an iPhone, or indeed gives any information about it apart from its release date.

In other Verizon iPhone news, Apple stores have reportedly started receiving universal bumpers to accommodate the few design changes made to the Verizon version of the handset. Endgadget got side-by-side comparison shots of old and new iPhone cases from a reader, showing that the main difference is in the size of the space for the mute button.

thanks for showing the ad and the info, Rob.
At first, I was going to use my new-every2 discount on an IPhone4 Feb3, but now I'm pondering waiting for the 5(this summer?), or even the (LTE&next years?)IPhone6 .
