AT&T, Verizon battle over iPhone during Super Bowl

Both AT&T and Verizon had TV advertisements spotlighting the iPhone that played during last night’s Super Bowl. Verizon played its recently debuted anti-AT&T iPhone ad which asks viewers whether their network works, while AT&T showed a new ad that is a direct response to Verizon’s spot. Entitled “Answer” and debuted several days prior to the big game, the spot shows a man answering his phone, only to find that it’s his wife wishing him a happy anniversary, which he had forgotten about. While on the call, the man frantically searches on his iPhone for a place to make dinner reservations—something that’s not possible on the Verizon iPhone when no Wi-Fi is available. Towards the end of the commercial, a voiceover says “only AT&T’s network lets your iPhone talk and surf at the same time,” with similar text shown on the screen. AT&T’s new commercial is now available for viewing on YouTube or in embedded form below.
