A few days ago we told you about how AT&T slapped Verizon in the face by ridiculing Big Red and the fact that the iPhone on Verizon can’t make calls while surfing the web. At the time, I predicted this was just the beginning of hostilities between the two giant.

Yesterday Verizon stroke back by launching their very first commercial for the iPhone. Simple, short, and brilliant, this TV ad makes fun of AT&T in just 6 words: “yes, I can hear you now”. Obviously this is a shot at AT&T’s poor network…

Reviews of the Verizon iPhone confirmed that call quality was indeed better on Verizon, however, data speed is still much better on AT&T. It seems that this will be the ground of marketing battles between the 2 carriers in the future.

What do you think of that?

    “Yesterday Verizon stroke back” lmao! I be stroking

  • appletiser

    a key line delivered in a not very convincing way, i feel a style more akin to that of Dom Joly (youtube if you’re unfamiliar) wouldve been more appropriate 🙂

    Excuse me. but dayummmmmm! slapped down !!He’s holding it wrong ahahaha (I love att but still lol)

  • AppleBits

    @ Jason – LMAO! Nice catch.
    Ahhh…I like it. I think the commercial wars are going to be fun to watch! hahaha
    Regardless…it’s about time peeps have a choice on a carrier.
    I prefer better data management, sticking to A-TAT for now.
    Even still, my call quality isn’t anything to complain about. But I’m still a huge V fan!

  • haha now we just need a picture of X-Wings with Verizon logos stricking the AT&T Death Star 🙂

  • Sebastian

    It would be cool if Verizon and AT&T joined together

  • manuel

    I don’t think it was a shot at AT&T. It look like a normal commercial to me.

    • William

      NO! this is, without question, a direct shot at AT&T’s crappy service quality.
      “Yes, I can hear you now”. ring the bell?

      • manuel

        I don’t think so. I think it’s just a normal commercial like they always do. Just this time, it’s with an iPhone.

    • Dirk

      The line ‘but does your network work?’ is a direct shot at AT&T.
