I am a bit confused and I admit this is beyond my technical knowlege....
So any of you please feel free to educate me on the following subject.
My latest copy of Consumer Reports arrived a few days ago....In the review of the Verizon Iphone there was a comment on the way CDMA works and it's limitations.....
This coupled with the front page article of this site, that the Pre3 may be on V's network that has me very confused.
(I don't subscribe to consumer reports online, only the magazine itself, which is an extra fee over and above the magazine fee, (which I BTW think it stinks, why have to pay them twice), therefore, I am retyping this by hand and I hope I copied it correctly).
QUOTING FROM CONSUMER REPORTS MAY 20111 PAGE 49,
Article titled; Verizon Iphone rates highly, but we can't recommend it. (Iphone fan boys & girls, I'm not criticizing the Iphone, so please don't fall on me like a ton of bricks).
"Our tests confirmed a widely noted ease-or-use drawback to the Verizon phone: You cannot place a voice call and surf the web at the same time on the cell network, as you can with the with the AT & T version".
"That limitation stems from the CDMA technology used by Verizon's network, rather than from some feature of the Iphone".
Is that also the case of the Pre3 if it would appear on the V network or will the Pre3 deploy the use of a different internal technology to get around this limitation?
Since I don't own a Pre, PP or Pre 2, I have no idea if one would be able to surf and talk on any network at the same time on any of the current or recently past smartphones in the Pre line of phones.
(My current phone is a Centro on V, however I don't have a data plan, the reason being the Centro's data stream system is so slow as compare to high speed rates I have my home DSL network at home, that it felt as if I was still in the dial up dinosaur age).
Thanks as always,
PS: Mods: I wasn't sure if this should be posted in the Pre3 section or the CDMA section, if I screwed up posting in the wrong place, I am so very sorry)!
