    I've noticed with the new "if you don't have an iPhone, then you don't have an iPhone" ads, that at the end of the commercial, only AT&T is shown. Not Verizon. Is there a reason?

    Really? In the version of the "If you don't have an iPhone, you don't have an iPod in your phone..." commercial they're showing here, there's no mention of AT&T, only Verizon. I wonder if they're targeting for the popular carrier in the area?

    Welcome to the multi-carrier world! In Canada, we often get the same Apple commercial with Telus, Bell, or Rogers at the end.

    The commercials I see just show 3G on the iPhone. No advertisements of Verizon or AT&T.

    Yeah, the beginning half of the one I saw is like that, but where it shows the stylized iPhone 4 text at the end, just before that it shows the Verizon Wireless logo.

    I tend to "zone-out" when commercials come on TV, so when I first saw this discussion, I payed attention to the iPhone commercials when they came up.... representations of phone screens just show "3G" - no carrier names at all - and I've seen a mix of logos at the end between Verizon & AT&T.

    They are terrible.. Apple ususally does a good job with their commercials but these suck.

    I like these commercials. It shows everybody out there that if you have a phone and think of it "like" an Iphone, you still don't have an Iphone.

    And this is big deal why? Verizon has their own commercials at times.

    I've seen the same commercials with each carrier. Notice that the commercials can be used
    for any carrier since the screen only shows "3G" at the top left corner without a carrier name.

    Well the ads are the truth. I don't have the iPhone of of course I don't have an iPhone. (DUH!) I think they are kind of lame top be honest. They really need to get back to the apps or hell real world useage

    Perhaps Apple is scared of android. Think of it, why would they make such an ad? Its not like sales are bad. Sales are good. So why all of a sudden make an ad that says "if you don;t have an iPhone you can't do this" (witch in some cases if false, you just can't do it the "apple way") Perhaps they are realizing that one size, one model and one way of doing things is not always the best. (why do you think RIM has fallen top 3rd place?)

    as for not showing Verizon. I think pretty much everyone knows about the iPhone and they are smart enough to go to ATT or Verizon. Those who don't, chances are a family member or friend knows about the iPhone so they can tell them,
