iPhone Faceoff: AT&T vs. Verizon

By: Christina Warren

Now that the Verizon iPhone is official, U.S. smartphone users have an additional choice of carrier when it comes to picking up Apple’s smartphone.

The Verizon iPhone will be available on February 10, 2011. Spec wise, this phone is virtually identical to its AT&T brother, but the difference in network technologies means that there are a few differences in what the phone can do.

We know that a lot of users are going to want to know how the AT&T iPhone compares to the Verizon iPhone. That’s why we created this infographic highlighting the various differences.

Verizon wouldn’t get into specifics on pricing plans, so for the data plan, we just used its existing smartphone rates. It also isn’t clear if Verizon will be charging for hotspot access on the iPhone (as it does with some of its handsets) or if it will be a free feature.

As you can see, the big difference — aside from carrier quality — is that the AT&T iPhone can use a simultaneous voice and data connection, meaning you can talk on the phone while tethering or browsing the web. Verizon’s CDMA network doesn’t allow for this sort of simultaneous connectivity, so keep that in mind (if you are an existing AT&T customer) before making the switch.

Are you going to buy a Verizon iPhone? Let us know why or why not in the comments.
