Moments ago, Apple seeded iOS 4.2.6 to public for Verizon’s CDMA iPhone 4 ahead of its launch date, that is February 10th, 2011.

Now the real question is that whether iOS 4.2.6 is vulnerable to Geohot’s Limera1n exploit or not? MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team thinks it probably is: Continue reading »

Couple of weeks back Verizon announced that it will finally be offering Apple’s iPhone on its CDMA network from February 10. One of the things that Verizon has not yet revealed is the pricing of the data plans for its iPhone customers.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon’s Chief Operating Officer Lowell McAdam has just revealed that it will be offering the unlimited data plans on top of customers calling plans to iPhone customers. Continue reading »

It’ll probably be subject to an additional fee as usual, but Verizon and Apple have just revealed that the new CDMA iPhone 4 will act as a mobile WiFi connection for up to five devices. It’ll come with an iOS-specific version of the Verizon 3G Mobile Hotspot that folks have been enjoying on their Droids for many moons now. That should allowing for laptops, tablets and the like to get online via iPhone without a pesky cord, and almost certainly make the long-verboten iPhone – iPad tethering connection finally attainable. Joy to the world!

Update: Verizon called it an app, but getting hands-on we can see that’s not the case at all — Personal Hotspot is built right into the CDMA iPhone 4’s build of iOS 4.2.5. Perhaps we’ll see it migrate to other devices as well?

Verizon iPhone might require new cases

The leaks suggested that the Verizon iPhone would have have slightly relocated buttons, and it’s true — as you can see in the photo above, the newly revised CDMA antenna notch has pushed the volume and mute controls down a hair from GSM version. That means a lot of cases — Apple’s current bumpers included — won’t fit properly on the Verizon version, although many third-party cases feature an open slot for the buttons that might still work. Either way, we’d bet Apple and third-party manufacturers are scrambling to have compatible cases in stores before the February 10th launch date — just make sure to check yours first if you’re switching from AT&T.

We just got a look at the Verizon version of the iPhone 4. Guess what? It’s just like an iPhone 4! There’s no custom pre-loaded Verizon software (like VCAST or some such bloatware), just that mobile hotspot tweak in the settings menu. There’s also no Verizon branding on the phone, though that’s hardly a surprise given Apple’s hatred of all logos that aren’t its own. The only real physical difference we can find are those tweaked CDMA-compatible antennas running around the edge — four in all, placed symmetrically and bumping down the volume / mute buttons. Interestingly, the phone is running iOS version 4.2.5, so perhaps that mobile hotspot functionality will make its way over to other iPhones when they sync up on iOS updates. Continue reading »
