Verizon iPhone FAQ Reveals Details
Verizon Wireless has posted a Frequently Asked Questions page for its upcoming Apple iPhone 4, and the page reveals a few new details about the device. In addition to synchronizing contacts with Exchange and MobileMe, Verizon Wireless suggests that its proprietary over-the-air Backup Assistant software will let current Verizon users transfer their contacts to the iPhone. VoiceMails will be lost. Only one Verizon app will come pre-installed, the 3G Mobile Hotspot app. Carrier apps on the iPhone are still a rarity.
