Bundles cable, internet, VoIP and wireless
Verizon is using the iPhone to lure new customers to its FiOS fiber optic-based video and internet service. New customers will receive discounted rates for the service bundle they choose and a $200 gift card, enough to offset the cost of the 16GB iPhone 4. The deal is good for new FiOS customers only.
Verizon is offering an additional discount for customers who sign up for the FiOS video, internet, and VoIP bundle with Verizon wireless service at Verizon Wireless, Verizon Plus or Verizon Experience stores. The $10 per month discount is good for one year.
Verizon has announced plans to make FiOS content available on the iPad. Currently, a free FiOS app for the iPhone and iPad lets users control the FiOS receiver and program the DVR.
