    Better then the first ads. Apparently the iPhone is a misfit toy. I love being naughty and browsing with my iPhone.

    Engadget link.

    And people still think there's going to be a Verizon iPhone?

    The misfit toys one really made me chuckle a bit. They aren't slamming the iPhone, just AT&T's network more or less.

    That being said, I'm liking my Droid at the moment but I haven't given up on my iPhone yet. Still testing the Droid for another 27 days. :)

    Yeah they actually seem like they compliment the iPhone (with the large size of the App store). Its more of a gouge at AT&T.

    it is not a hit on the iPhone but an attack on AT&T

    I have to admit I found the adds really pretty funny.

    You're such a bad boy. :)

    Further water to put out the "iPhone is coming to Verizon" fire.

    These aren't, the Droid Does campaign is a different story.

    It's advertising. My company I work for was bashing a product and a year later we're using it lol

    I'm sorry, but Verizon criticizing a product they're planning to sell is just bad business and I'm sure Apple wouldn't like that.

    Sure but you don't think Apple wants to be a part of the USA's biggest mobile phone provider? Businesses love money so I wouldn't be surprised if VZW does get the iPhone in the future at all.

    Well my misfit toy gives me better coverage than VZW. Long gone are the days of having to sit in a specific spot for my phone to work and moving in the slightest that I would lose my phone call at my job. Having to literally walk out the door to use my phone.

    Maybe, but I don't think Apple wants to work with a provider who is trashing their flagship product in their ads...

    I couldn't surf the web, it was so annoying. Also in certain classes I couldn't get nothing at all except: "Searching for Network" or Network "Request Failed". :mad:

    You guys can't see the difference between Apple and AT&T . . . the ads are directed at your fav carrier, not your beloved hardware. :D

    Clearly it's a hit on both. Just saw the Blue Xmas ad on TV and the guy is clearly holding a white iPhone, even though the Apple logo was 'shopped out.

    The ads are excellent. Verizon is going all in this quarter.

    Will be interesting to see if ATT and/or Apple responds.

    of course they are, they know they have ~7 months to take pot shots at apple and at&t before the new iphone/OS update.
