    1. That resembles an iPhone.

    2. Thats not themed; its the elephant's (I'm assuming that thing is an elephant) reflection.

    It's not winterboard. They've deliberately made it look different (speaker, square home button) to the iPhone, probably to avoid legal issues.

    That is an iPhone, most definitely. But as mentioned above, they cannot have it show the exact iPhone because of lawsuits and such. And also, it is not necessarily jailbroken. It is probably just another coverup, so people wont recognize that it truly is the iPhone.
    I love these commercials. Verizon is pretty funny.

    Look at the design of the phone though! Anyone think it resembles the possibly fake iPhone 4G pictures plastered throughout the net? I mean, come on, they improve the design on each generation and it resembles it a bit.

    As for the jailbreak, the bottom row of icon's isn't docked as it is in the default iPhone OS without any modifications. However, I don't see any icon's that would confirm it's jailbroke device.

    You serious? Its Verizon making fun of AT&T by mocking their coverage with a iPhone look-alike. Nothing more.

    It just resembles it. Didn't say it was an iphone. You're are supposed to assume it is.

    btw remember the radioshack adds with jailbroken ipods?
