new iphone and verizon
Quick post to gauge some thoughts/input/feedback on how the LTE verizon iphone will handle data connection change-overs.
Basically i've got an At&t iphone 4 now but i'm pretty tired of terrible cell reception and constant data connection change-overs. I'll go from 3G to edge, then nothing, then back to 3G. Or when it says 3G, but data doesn't work, then bumps down to edge, then eventually re-establishes 3G. I simply refer to this phenomenon as 'normal at&t'. So i'm considering switching to verizon when the new iphone drops.
So my initial concern would be this.. lets say i've got my LTE verizon iphone, and i'm on the outskirts of the LTE coverage and it rolls back to 3G. Does that mean i'm unable to access data while using the voice network like current iphones on verizon? While hardly a major issue (as I don't recall the last time I truly needed data during a phone call) i'm curious to know if that would still be the case. I imagine it would have to be unless they made a change to their current 3G network.
Let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas.. i'd hate to stick with at&t since I'm not in one of their priority LTE upgrade areas.. so I forsee a long wait for that here.
