Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.
This item is billed as 3G with Verizon as the carrier. That would make it an A-1396 model. What I received is an A-1395 model which is a wifi-only model. Beware. It is not as described in the description or in the specifications.
