VoLTE: Simultaneous Voice and Data
Sunday, 8:54 PM
in the Article: Review: Apple iPhone 6 for Verizon Wireless forum

So the one thing Apple's iPhones have been incapable of doing on CDMA is simultaneous voice and data. With VoLTE this is supposed to be remedied and yet no mention that you tested the ability to surf the Web while on a call with VoLTE enabled.

I own the Note 3. I also have a second line with a GS3. No plans to upgrade to the Note 4 but the idea of upgrading my GS3 to the Six PLUS is intriguing. Probably won't happen because of the price, but I would be lying if I said I was not tempted.

It is difficult to imagine that you own anything other than an iphone.

Why would anyone own an iphone and not invest in a Life Proof?

No.

Verizon only throttles those users on Unlimited Data plans. So it is not a matter of conserving data. They will allow a person to use as much data as they like... ...as long as the meter is running. This is understandable from a business perspective certainly. I just don't want to hear how Verizon is only trying to protect its network. BS. They are protecting their bottom line. Why they feel the need to lie about this is beyond ...

Lack of Apps

Yeah. That's a huge deal though. Lack of Apps is the reason why I use my Note 3 extensively while my Playbook gets no attention whatsoever.

Voice and Data Simultaneously

This is the only way one will be able to use Voice and Data Simultaneously on an iPhone on Verizon's network.

So if BlackBerry WANTS to sell this device directly to Verizon customers, Evil Red should have no problem allowing it to be sold to them. I haven't forgotten Verizon's empty promises of Any Device Initiative. One of the terms of the 700 megahertz spectrum Verizon won in auction was that they would allow any device which passed their security requirements on their network. We know Blackberries are secure if nothing else. This Passport is certainly ...

...pr*ck. When T-Mobile wants to take the burden off its network their network is inferior. When Verizon decides it wants to do the same (and make no mistake about it---they will) it will be because they want to enhance the user experience for all of their customers or some other such rubbish. BURN Evil Red BURN!

And again... What is the point if all of this? If Apple has to approve Sprint selling the phone for less or giving the phone away. Again--- So what? I just don't understand the vitriol against Apple.

Why do you care? Sprint is paying Apple for the phones. What they chose to sell them for is their business.

Well... It's doubtful. I believe Sprint has a quota of iphone to sell. Simply Everything For other smartphones is $60.

Well...I have a GS3 and a Note 3. I'm thinking of replacing that GS3 with the 6 PLUS if it has simultaneous voice and data on Verizon. I see nothing wrong with owning a Ford and a Chevy. It's my money and I own the phones. I'm not married to them.

Thank you.

I mean seriously. Thank you for educating these people on the ridiculousness of suggesting that Verizon actually wants an inferior iphone experience.

Exactly. No one hates Evil Red more than me, but seriously some of these folks need to get Apple's *Bleep* out of their throat. What sense would it make for Verizon to prevent Voice and Data from working simultaneously on the iphone? What you think that they love AT&T having such a significant advantage over them? Of course, Apple is the problem.

Sounds good. The best thing about it is that you don't even have to talk Apple up. The name sells itself.

No. It isn't. Every other manufacturer of 4G CDMA phones includes chips capable of Simultaneous Voice and Data. Apple is the problem.

First question: Will the iphone 6/6+ for Verizon be capable of voice/data simultaneously, independent of the VoLTE?

Seriously. I detest going into VZW retail stores and I worked in retail for five years and tech at a call center for two. They have no sales support. Everything is sales. I can't imagine mentioning expired sales to a customer. If she had to upgrade, I'm glad she did it at Best Buy.

I have three phones with Unlimited Data and one dumb phone. I always upgrade online on the dumb phone line and then switch the device. I would say either pay full retail or purchase a non Apple handset on Ebay UNLESS you're willing to add a third line for the purpose of using it solely for upgrades.

in the Article: T-Mobile to Squelch Data Speeds of Terms Violators forum

It's not generous. It's certainly not fair. Carriers want money but would prefer that consumers not actually use the service for which they are paying. Verizon can get away with this arrogance but I don't believe T-Mobile has the same resources to do so. Only time will tell.

Re: Honestly

Exactly. Sprint has no chance to compete with Verizon and AT&T on coverage. They have to sell what they have now. Selling what they hope to have next week or next year is a recipe for disaster.

Wow.

Wi Fi is not available where I live. Unbelievable that Verizon has defenders. Just goes to show that when Armageddon occurs there will indeed be those fighting by Satan's side who know exactly who they are fighting for.

...for the FCC to stand up to Verizon. It's bad enough that they were allowed to take over Alltel which was a clear violation of the agreement Verizon had which was supposed to keep its paws off of Alltel for ten years. Verizon always agrees to terms and then alters the deal when it is already on the ground. Enough already.

I thought DT wanted out of the U.S. market? They apparently feel really good about themselves because they have to know there is not a snow ball's chance of Sprint being allowed to buy them out. Therefore this offer must be extremely insulting to them or they actually believe they can thrive in the U.S. Or are they hoping for another poison pill deal like they received from AT&T when their acquisition fell through.

...unless you're paying per MB. They are very cool with those NOT on Unlimited Plans streaming. This is an end run on VZW's part and it just may work. Fran Shammo gloated to the share holders about how 4G would put money in their pockets because users will burn through their data allotments and then either pay overages or bump their plans up to higher tiers. The Unlimited Data consumers are the ones they want to get rid of. ...

Exactly. But Google pushed an update which stopped free tethering from working on my GS3 thereby forcing me to purchase the data plan as I was unwilling to risk rooting my device. In the end...Verizon always wins.

This is funny. Anyone using more than 4.7 GB per month is a data hog? They're basically enforcing the $29.99 for 5GB artificially.
