AT&T users have had the ability now for years to go to their favorite online gambling sites from their iPhone devices. Now, gamblers on the Verizon network will be allowed to do the same.
After months of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that the iPhone 4 is coming to Verizon. The news was met with cheers from Verizon customers, even though the phone will not have some of the capabilities that mobile users have come to expect.
“This is a great day for me,” said Mark Halifax. “For the past couple of months, I have been using my girlfriend’s iPhone to access my online poker sites. Now, I can get an iPhone for myself and not have to bother her. I can’t wait until the iPhone’s are released.”
Verizon will use the devices similar to how AT&T has used them, to get customer commitments. Any person buying the iPhone 4 from Verizon will have to commit to a two year service contract. That is the same term limit as the AT&T contract. The phone will officially be available on February 10th at Verizon retailers.
One problem that online gamblers may run into is the connectivity to the Internet. Every time a new call comes into the phone, the connection to the Internet will be lost. This will be dangerous for online poker players who may be locked into hands when their phone rings and disconnects from the poker site.
An advantage for customers of other networks is that their existing numbers will be able to be transferred to the new Verizon iPhone. The process of transferring the number may take up to four days.
Mobile gaming has become popular in recent years, with many sites developing apps specific for the iPhone and other mobile devices. In New Jersey, lawmakers yesterday passed legislation that will regulate online gambling, creating an even bigger market for mobile gaming.
