Is the Verizon iPhone 4 released in America any different from the normal iPhone 4?

Yes. The Verizon iPhone 4 uses CDMA network technology which is a proprietary type of data technology not used here in the UK - and not all US networks/regions use it, either. In other words: the Verizon iPhone 4 won't work here. For a look at the differences between CDMA and our GSM read http://www.wisegeek.com/m/what-is-the-difference-between-gsm-and-cdma.htm

Otherwise the phones are more or less the same. The US testers of Consumer Report refused to 'recommend' Verizon's iPhone 4 just as they did the original iPhone 4 because of the issues of antenna attenuation - bridging the gap between the 2 antennas can lead to loss of signal. A case or 'bumper' will make that impossible, though. So with a case you're safe.

Oh right, I wasn't sure if it was compatiable. THanks Jan
