Verizon Mocks AT&T's iPhone Voice Problems in New Ad
As reviews come in on the Verizon iPhone, noting better call quality and less dropped calls, so far we've heard nothing about it from Verizon. However, a new Verizon ad clearly targets voice calls on AT&T's iPhone.
After all, it has been a big complaint from AT&T iPhone users over the years: the number of dropped calls, particularly in cities with a high-density of iPhone users, such as San Francisco or New York.
The new ad goes as follows. A voiceover begins, saying:
“But does your network ... work?”
You hear a call come in and, the call is answered by ... the Verizon guy!
While less dropped calls and better quality on the Verizon iPhone have been borne out by reviews, as well, quite a few people may be more interested in data speed and reliability than voice. Recent surveys have shown that while voice use is dropping, while data use is climbing, particularly among younger users.
This is also a continuing trend. Still, there is no doubt the message of this ad will be "heard." Watch the ad below.
