5Buy an external case, know exactly what you're buying - and what you're not...
By Sam I Am
The iPhone 4 (regardless of your cell phone carrier) works best if it has a case. There was some issue with the iPhone 4 and the quality of the internal cell phone antenna. Without the case, I drop from full reception to only one bar. I had the same exact issues when I owned an unlocked iPhone 4 which I used with T-Mobile. So I highly recommend also purchasing an external case, to protect your phone as well as improve the cell phone signal.

Definitely you need to understand what you're buying. This iPhone will not work on any wireless carrier other than Verizon. You can't take this phone and switch over to AT&T or T-Mobile service, because they use a different cell phone technology than Verizon. A lot of the unhappy user reviews posted on Amazon for this product suggest to me that in many cases, the buyer just didn't understand what they were purchasing.

Another problem may be with the prefilled Amazon product description. This is not technically an "unlocked phone." An unlocked iPhone is one that will work on different cell phone carriers, so some people may have bought the phone relying on the word "unlocked," which is completly inaccurate and misleading. This phone will only work on the Verizon network.

There's no SIM card slot on the Verizon iPhone, and by design, there's no memory card slot either. You'll have to live with the 8 GB (actually closer to 6 GB) of space available on the phone. I've kept my iPod for listening to music - my primary reason for buying this iPhone 4 was so I could use it as a phone.

My final suggestion is this: anyone who buys this iPhone from Amazon should not wait to activate it with Verizon. Even if you've bought it as a gift, don't wait to make sure the phone works, because on the off-chance the phone was reported lost or stolen and deactivated by Verizon(a "bad ESN"), you will need to get in contact with Amazon right away so you can send the phone back for a refund. This is one of the advantages of buying directly from Amazon - you might pay more money but at least, if you buy from them (and not from one of their third-party sellers), you have Amazon customer service to watch your back. Just make sure you're buying the iPhone on a sale page that says "fulfilled by Amazon." This is the one you want, because at least you know Amazon will stand behind the purchase.

5Very nice phone
By Austin
This is my first Apple product I have ever personally owned. I come from a family that has at least 2 Apple products in their possession but I always steered away from them.

They seem too common and very popular, I always wanted to stick out with something different but I ended up with this phone. And the reason why is because it was free, why not?

After I received it, I opened it up and the device is beautifully crafted. I was impressed but not extremely wowed because I'm already familiar with them and the layout.

Like all Apple products the iOS is very fluid and easy to learn and master in seconds. It's very nice but it's outdated. I believe it's nice to keep a good layout but I believe the same OS does get old since it follows the exact same initiative the first generation iPod touch had. But again it works, it's reliable, and easy to use.

People seem to shoot for huge phones that are light in the hand and has the biggest screen.

Not in my case. I love the iPhone's screen size. Bigger is not always the best. In fact I love this screen over other competing phones. The Samsung Galaxy SIII has a huge screen but why? I understand its easier to play games but its not convenient the iPhones screen is big enough to display a lot but be portable as well.

I have more coverage with the iPhones screen. I can touch anywhere on the screen with my thumb without any discomfort. I can use the phone completely with one hand and one thumb. The galaxy's screen is too big and you have to hold in two hands for the most comfortable coverage. And if i wanna watch movies I'd get my laptop or vita to watch videos. I don't like watching full movies on cell phones anyways. It's a waste of battery when you can watch it on a full size tv. Bigger screen can be an inconvenience and is really just for bragging rights.

The iPhone 4 has some weight. But I like a heavier phone it feels like a nicely crafted unit. Not light plastic but not cheap glass either. It is the perfect weight although the glass finish makes it slippery in the hand. Nothing a good case can't fix. And with such an investment go ahead and protect it. With either an otterbox defender or a griffin survivor some of my favorites.

The battery life is decent depending on what you use it for. Text and calling only it lasts a day. Or if you're like me and play games, watch YouTube videos with your friends, and text frequently it dies within a day. So it decent.

Overall I'd give this phone a 5/5

5So much to make life easier
By Todd7
This 8 gb iPhone is absolutely magnificent in its design and seemingly infinite features. The phone is durable, but I still recommend getting a protective covering for a modest sum of money to protect your investment. This iPhone has everything one needs to navigate through their daily lives at a time of fast-paced living. It's surreal that something so small can do so much. The best part is the extremely user-friendly interface that makes owning one of these phones a very attractive endeavor instead of a nightmare. The jury is still out as to whether 8 gb is enough for me, but it seems to be as of the moment. I recommend the iPhone 4 for all of your daily activities all in the palm of your hand.
