Customers excited to grab Verizon iPhone

HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) – The Verizon iPhone has finally arrived for Apple fanatics wanting to be on the Verizon network.

The phone was made available for regular customers starting on Thursday. Verizon Wireless customers were allowed to make pre-orders starting on February 3rd and were able to receive their new phones before the 10th.

At the Verizon store in Homewood, iPhone enthusiasts sat in their cars to stay warm during the 28 degree temperatures at 5:00 a.m. on Thursday morning. Many said they expected lines to form, but the temperatures kept people inside of their cars.

The phone will cost the same on both Verizon's and AT&T's networks and voice plans are about the same, but data plans are different. Verizon offers unlimited data for $30 a month, while AT&T only offers 2 gigabytes of data for $25 per month.

A recent experiment conducted around Birmingham found that the coverage around the Birmingham metro area for both AT&T and Verizon was almost equal in quality and speed.
