Verizon iPhone 4 Off-Contract is $50 More than AT&T Offer

January 25, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

News on the Verizon iPhone 4 seldom ceases, and this time around, it’s a pricing tug-of-war that is grabbing press attention. The device has been subject for discussion ever since the device was first announced. Pricing differences of the Apple iPhone 4 have turned out to be something that has spurred hot debate, and at the center of all that are carriers Verizon and AT&T.

AT&T and Verizon offer the iPhone 4 with similar price-tags on contract. While Verizon offers the 16GB model for $199 and the 32GB model for $299, rival AT&T also toes the same line.

However, when it comes to off-contract pricing, Verizon offers the 16GB model for $649 and 32GB model for $749. These prices are $50 more than the off-contract prices offered by AT&T. The iPhone 4 16GB version is available on AT&T for $599, while the 32GB version comes for $699.

What makes Verizon sell for more? The query yields answers too many. The $50 difference could be due to the fact that the Verizon device is a brand new one. It could also be attributed to the device bearing a costlier CDMA chip inside. Whatever, pricing has much to do with customer preferences. May be Verizon knows that well, and wants to stay confident that they are offering a better model.
