Verizon pitches discounted iPhone4 to new FiOS subscribers

Verizon, which is seeing booming sales of the Apple iPhone, is hoping to use the uber smartphone to help drive adoption of its FiOS TV service as well.

Verizon (NYSE:VZ) is offering new subscribers to its FiOS service a $200 rebate on the purchase of the Apple (Nasdaq:AAPL) iPhone4. A 16GB version of the iPhone4 costs $199. The telco also is offering between $5 and $20 off monthly bills on bundled services.

The company said it broke sales records in the first two hours the phone was available for pre-order Feb. 3. Verizon started sales on Feb. 10. Shorter-than-expected lines were noticed at the Verizon and Apple stores for the handset.
