The following document was apparently leaked from Verizon and serves to brief its employees on many of the iPhone’s not-so-shiny particularities. The document is divided into four sections, each covering a different “myth”.
Myth #1: The iPhone 3G is now twice as fast, but ONLY where AT&T has 3G coverage.
NO WAY! Isn’t that logical? Apparently, AT&T 3G coverage is only available to 40 to 50% of the US population, while Verizon’s EV-DO covers more than 80% of the US map.
Myth #2: The iPhone 3G is half the price!
Let’s see, the phone costs less, but the service is more expensive. Yep, I think most of us have already realized this by now, but most of the technically-challenged users will probably think that the new iPhone is indeed cheaper. A good selling point for Verizon.
Myth #3: iPhone Data Plan Covers All Data.
Apparently, people selling the iPhone let potential customers presume that the iPhone data plan covers all data, while in reality, it does not. Common seller’s tactic, nothing to say here.
Myth #4: The iPhone 3G Data Plan includes more data at affordable prices.
Again, Verizon says that only Verizon offers true “unlimited” data service.
So, what are your thoughts on this, do you think this document was made up, or is it official? And what about the four myths? Let us know in the comments section below!
