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.

I'm sorry, but Verizon criticizing a products they're planning to sell is just bad business and I'm sure Apple wouldn't like that.
Oh I agree 100%
I hope they do sell it so we cn go into a store and say "weren't you just bashing the iPhone a few months ago?" :D

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.

Followed by "Congrats for the lack of intregity your company has. You just lost my business based on that alone."

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...

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

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.

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.
