Verizon Continues Onslaught of iPhone Bashing Advertisements

“Good luck surfing the Web with that [iPhone],” spouts a managerial Christmas elf overseeing gifts for naughty and nice revelers, in a new ad for Verizon Wireless. The “There’s a Map for That” campaign has gained attention for not only bashing the iPhone and AT&T but also a lawsuit filed by AT&T against Verizon’s 3G coverage claims.

The holidays are upon us and consumers are eager to jump onto the smart phone bandwagon, meaning this is the perfect time for Verizon to launch its attack. AT&T customers have bemoaned the providers sometimes limited 3G coverage since the latest iPhone (3GS) came to market. Its predecessor had similar issues.
