Comparison of the IPhone 4 by It’s Different Service Providers
The first difference of this device is the AT model’s ability to surf the web on the network while making a call. The Verizon model can still perform this function; however, it requires the user to be within wi fi range. The rationale for this is that the seamless Verizon network does not carry the ability to send voice and data information simultaneously.
The second area of comparison is the network coverage. Many customers wanted to know if the seamless Verizon network would indeed drop less calls with the iPhone 4 device than the AT network. In a test between the two where 200 calls were made in various locations both above and underground, the Verizon phone dropped 33% less calls than the AT phone and also carried a stronger signal strength troughout. That being said, it was reported that the AT device performed quite well in both rural and urban areas, making the Verizon device an option for those in harder to attain signal areas.
The final comparison of the two devices is the ability to travel internationally. The AT device operates on the GSM network and carries the ability to perform on 4 bands of network communication. The Verizon iPhone 4 operates on the seamless CDMA network and operates on three bands of CDMA coverage. While the Verizon device does indeed offer more thorough coverage in the US, the ability to use the device in GSM only areas, such as most of Europe, is impossible. This is one issue that some business customers are becoming aware of after switching networks.
The brains of the two iPhone 4’s are almost identical, making the above topics the only major considerations when deciding which device to choose. As for running apps and using the device as a personal assistant, the two models both serve the same function and are externally identical.
The introduction of the Verizon iPhone leaves no contest that the expanding carrier embracement of the iPhone will inevitably place the vice on other competitors in the smartphone market. Since the release of the iPhone, Verizon has noted an uptick in sales and new customer sign on’s. Verizon has responded to some criticism of the new iPhone 4 by stating that they wanted to focus on their CDMA coverage as the cornerstone marketing feature of this phone, and that they would consider implementing the 4G network or a hybrid model as their 4G network strengthened. Many customers polled seem to be eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone 5, hoping that this release may include this hybrid network feature, eliminating any restrictions on this device

Apple Orders 15 Million iPhone 5s
DigiTimes, who accurately reported the ordering of CDMA iPhone 4s earlier this year (Thus confirming the iPhone 4 for Verizon), is reporting that Apple has ordered 15 million iPhone 5s from a Chinese supplier. The device, which has yet to be announced, will be shipping in September according to DigiTimes. The Shanghai based facility, Pegatron Technology, has begun a rigorous hiring regimene in order to cover the labor needed to cover the order.
This announcement includes a segment that reports that the iPhone 5 (or 4s) will not feature any major upgrades from the iPhone 4. This, once again, contradicts several other sources whom claim the iPhone 4S would feature a radical new case design. It seems that there is a lot of speculation at this point, and like any other report about the upcoming refresh of the handset, should be taken with a grain of salt. At this point, anything seems plausible, perhaps even the now nearly dead rumor of a smaller ‘iPhone Nano’ will be rolled out in September.
App logs from early iPhone 5s show dual

Tuesday was apparently a day for iPhone 5 rumors that have been circulating for months to be re hashed. Not only did reports of an 8GB iPhone 4 reinvigorate the rumor about a cheaper iPhone for emerging markets, it’s now (again) reported that the upcoming iPhone 5 will almost certainly be a world phone that supports multiple networks, including both CDMA (such as Sprint and Verizon) and GSM (AT T Mobile, and most cell networks globally).
This has been assumed for months, since the Verizon iPhone was torn down. At that time, it was noted that version of the iPhone 4 had dual mode capability.
CDMA carriers Verizon and Sprint have long shipped dual mode devices, for Windows Mobile and Android, as well. Verizon’s Droid Pro, Droid 2 Global, and Droid 3 are great examples. The devices have hardware that allows CDMA connectively as well as the insertion of a SIM when a Verizon or Sprint customer travels outside the country.
Thus, it was pretty much assured that the iPhone 5 would be dual mode. No sense creating two different hardware variants if you can avoid it, right. In this case, however, app logs have provided confirmation of the new dual mode iPhone.
The developer of some of the most popular iOS apps said that recently, devices have been logged using his app using both the MNC/MCC for Verizon and AT simultaneously. Mobile network codes (MNC) / mobile country codes (MCC) are used to uniquely identify wireless carriers.
This information would also seem to confirm that the iPhone 5 will not be an LTE device, but we’ve felt that the next generation iPhone would not sport LTE for some time. Battery life, and real estate issues with first generation LTE chipsets (particularly battery life) would seem to point to Apple skipping LTE this year.
In addition, COO Tim Cook, handling the day to day reins of Apple while CEO Steve Jobs seemed to discount LTE, as well. Speaking about the Verizon iPhone, when asked why Apple did not embrace LTE for that device, he said, “Two reasons the first gen LTE chipsets force design changes we wouldn’t make. And Verizon customers told us they want the iPhone now. I can’t tell you the number of times we’ve been asked ‘when will it work on Verizon.”
