Verizon Lowering The iPhone 4 To Just $150?

Posted in iPhone, News on 05/07/2011 by J. Glenn Künzler


We’ve recently reported on the possibility of a free iPhone 3GS becoming available around the iPhone 5 launch, and raised the question of how Verizon, who lacks an iPhone 3GS, might respond. It appears they have an answer, and it comes in the form of a price-reduced iPhone 4!

Verizon-centric blog VZBuzz reports that they have obtained some leaked marketing material from Verizon showing the price of the 16GB iPhone 4 dropping to a very low $150.99 with a 2-year contract. The screen also shows price drops on many other handsets.

Personally, I find this pretty easy to believe – Verizon is definitely interested in a low-cost version of the iPhone to offer to customer who won’t be able to afford the iPhone 5, and offering the iPhone 4 at such a reduced price definitely wouldn’t hurt their figures by any means. It may even be a tactic to help them clear out inventory ahead of the iPhone 5 launch.

What are your thoughts? As always we welcome and encourage you to sound off in the comments!
