iLounge has received its Verizon iPhone 4 for review purposes and is busy putting the revised handset through its paces, but there are several small differences between it and the GSM model that we’d like to share. Apple has notably removed all the markings below the text on the rear of the CDMA model, including the CE and FCC logos; the text itself has changed to reflect its new FCC ID of BCG-E2422A—GSM models carry an ID of BCG-E2380A or B. The ringer switch of the CDMA model has been shifted notably downwards to accomodate the fourth antenna divider, something that may cause incompatibilities with some cases, as may a tiny shift downwards in the placement of the volume buttons. Also, the front and back of the box have changed to reflect the revised antenna design and different networks, respectively; Apple has added a reference to the CDMA model’s hearing aid compatibility rating to the sticker on the rear, but includes no such reference on GSM models. We’re continuing to test the new handset, but for now, feel free to see our Verizon iPhone 4 Unboxing photoset on Flickr.
