Verizon iPhone Ordering Pages Temporarily Outed on Apple's Site

Verizon and Apple pre-orders for the iPhone 4 on that CDMA network won't go live until Thursday, Feb. 3, but a slip-up at Apple's site on Wednesday showed off some details on plans, etc. Some of this information has been confirmed by Verizon, but nothing this detailed has shown up yet.

The ordering pages were taken down later, but here's what we now know:

All black models; the white iPhone 4 isn't appearing in conjunction with the Verizon launch. Models are MC676LL/A 16GB and MC678LL/A 32GB.

  • 450 min/mo ($.45 / minute overage charge) $39.99/mo
  • 900 min/mo w/unlimited to 5 selected people (Verizon's Friends and Family) ($.40 / minute overage charge) $59.99/mo
  • Unlimited $69.99/mo
  • Family Share plans, of course, are available.
  • Unlimited $29.99/mo
  • Unlimited iPhone + 2GB tethering and Hotspot 3G ($20/GB overage charge) $49.99/mo
  • Pay-per-use $.20/text $.25/video/pic
  • 250 messages/mo ($.10 ea over) $5/mo
  • 500 messages/mo ($.10 ea over) $10/mo
  • Unlimited $20/mo

Although many of these details were either assumed from other Verizon smartphones, or known, it's nice to see them "in print," although they were taken down later. Obviously, it was just Apple getting ready for next week, and hopefully there will be no repercussions for the SNAFU.

And this is why I don't like most of the carriers. So if I take 450 minutes ($40), plus data ($30, and actually 5GB), and SMS ($20), I am spending $90 plus taxes and fees. Figure about $100. Compared to the $74 I play to Sprint with better features (actual unlimited data, unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited 4G tethering, etc), I just don't get it.

I'm seriously considering Sprint for those prices and getting out of my AT&T contract. Just wondering about the coverage in the northeast.

And since verizon isn't have the iphone come out white. You can go to and be one of the few to have a white iphone 4g.

Im def going to switch out of AT&T, i need my unlimited data plan. Sprint seems to be a pretty good choice right now price wise.
