Man this is crazy why does everyone talk crap about this if you need it stick with Att but for me and alot of people we don't need it at all times and most of the times I need it I have wifi so it's a non issue. And before you judge me I've been on all 4 us carriers and a few in Europe. Give me the service were I need it
The one in denial is you. The discussion was brought up by me in the first place to quell a lot of the AT&T people hating on this new phone, because it, and Verizon are "inferior". They're not. Just different. And I pointed out in the original post, that the power users already likely have data solutions that meet their needs without "simultaneous voice and data" on their phones. And it works just fine for them. The other reason I brought this up was to be a caveat emptor for AT&T customers thinking of switching. Better to know something ahead of time,, and be able to make an informed decision.

I am very happy with AT&T, no coverage issues for me, and I don't think I've dropped more than a dozen calls in 7+ years with AT&T. That works for ME. What works for may be the same, or it may be different.
If you've neve had a feature, and therefore never used it, yet managed to "get by" this long, odds are that you don't need that feature.
Your point about the "heads up" for AT&T customers considering switching is definitely a good one... had no one mentioned it, they'd be crying in their beer when they discovered the "missing" feature... but the bottom line is you have to go with what works for you...
Thanks for your insight.

If the maps are preinstalled, then I see no need for the phone to use data to navigate, you would only need the phone's GPS to work.

I have a question, if you are on Verizon and you are with someone else with their mobile hotspot turned on will you be able to talk and surf while on their connection? I would think yes.

The type of user that frequents a message board such as this one is most likely not your average user. We would be more inclined to use voice and data at the same time. That being said, those of us on Verizon will find it a non-issue. We already have alternate methods. Wifi anyone?
I'd rather have Verizon's solid service than a phone with AT&T that i may not actually be able to use as a phone.

I agree with HankAZ. At my work only AT&T and Tmo get reception inside the building. Therefore, i have no choice. Verizon simply searches for signal all day and drains the battery. I came from Verizon. One would think that coming from Verizon that they wouldn't use simultaneous data and voice, but once you have that option you quickly realize that you can utilize it. I use this ability on a daily basis, particularly navigation (NAVIGON) and talking over bluetooth in my car. If you don't have it now, and have never had it, then maybe you will never know what you are missing. It will be like your soon to be iPhone addiction.....trust me if you haven't owned an iPhone you are in for a treat!

Those of you on Verizon keep saying how can you miss somehing you never had. The point is when someone with a Verizon iPhone tries to do it because their friend or whoever has an iPhone on AT&T do it all the time how do you explain to them why the same phone can do it on AT&T but not on Verizon?
