iPhone 4 on AT&T:
Rumor I've been hearing is that vz has no plans of offering any basic phones for lte. Not sure if that's the case but I'm sure their first choice is everyone on a smartphone
Yea, the chipsets are probably not in place yet for VoLTE basic phones.
Yeah the new iPhone should most definitely be lte. I figured it will be where if you want to be on vz lte, you have to get a smartphone so doesnt surprise me. Prob when CDMA does get shut down so do the basic phones. Maybe manufacturers will come out with good basic phones with the right hardware. Wishful thinking
I'm really wondering if the iPhone 5 will support LTE on 850/1900....that would be fantastic for VZW and ATT. Also i wonder if it would support VoLTE. Sadly i think both of those things are too new/advanced for apple.
There was a recent report that the 5's batter is only around 1400mah ....I'm very curious about its battery life now, especially when considering the larger screen it has to light up and drive.
It technically can support LTE if it has the MDM9615 baseband (which it will). It might not come right at first, but could be added later. Samsung is adding VoLTE to their S IIIs with a software update.
I don't know how feasible that would be at this stage of the LTE game... but it'd be interesting to see them try. Though if they customize radios for carriers, they'd almost have to include the 850.
I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.
This is extremely BAD in my opinion. Until we have phones that support both Tmobile's umts and AT&T's UMTS bands that is, that way prepaid customers and switch from one to the other and keep their phone. Not to mention what happens when I want to break out that old Nokia N-Gage, or iphone 2g, or Treo 680 and use it for nostalgia purposes for a few days or what about my GSM based home security system? What about people who want to unlock a G1 or Mytouch 3g slide and use it on at&t. OOPS cant now becuase GSM is shut down! and T-Mobile doesnt use standard frequencies for their UMTS. I mean come on whats the point of having a sim card if you cant switch carriers and keep your phone?
