Verizon announces a few more iPhone pre-order details

Verizon has announced that iPhone 4 pre-orders will begin at 3 AM on February 3. They have also opened up Verizonwireless.com/iphoneorder as the URL that one will need to be able to place an order for the iPhone.

Verizon is still mum on exact plan pricing but has come forth and said that the WiFi hotspot feature of iOS will cost an additional $20 a month. This shouldn't come as a major surprise as Verizon currently charges this premium on its other phones.

It has still not been confirmed if Verizon will be offering up the white version of the iPhone. The elusive white model was originally shown off by Verizon but it has since been removed from their website.

The Verizon iPhone is no different from the one launched last year. It will still pack a 5MP camera for HD video, run an A4 processor and a Retina display. This partnership between Verizon and Apple means both companies will work together in the future, bringing the next wave of iPhones to the carrier.

So let me get this straight.. they charge you for connecting to a wifi hot spot instead of using their network for web browsing or are they charging for you using your phone AS a wifi hot spot for say laptops to connect too?

They charge you $20 a month if you use your iPhone as a WiFi hotspot for other devices to gain internet access through.

Ok well either way that's stupid... I'm curious if there is a way to unlock that. Not that I would ever buy one cause I can't stand apple products but never hurts to research.

Charging to use your phone as a wifi hotspot is the most stupidest thing I have ever heard. Yeah I can understand the fact that more devices on the network causes more usage and more of a strain on their network. But isn't that why we pay for data usage?

Someone needs to unlock this phone so we can use it on sprints cheaper network.

That aside, I too would like to see it unlocked. I doubt we'll have to wait long. Can't be much harder than the AT&T phone... Right? Guys?
