    AT&T is running GSM, Verizon is running CDMA. Other than incompatibility and the impossibility of using our phones on another carrier's network, how does our service stack up against theirs?

    CDMA uses a lower-frequency signal than GSM. In areas where there are obstructions or the signal needs to carry further, CDMA is actually better -- however, GSM carries more data per cycle. It's like the move from 900Mhz cordless phones to 2.4Ghz. Remember how much further we used to be able to go with our old clunky cordless phones? Same deal.

    FRG01B Heating issue

    I upgraded my un-rooted phone to the FRG01B last week off of google's servers. My phone gets too hot during a phone call and specially during data activity. Is that issue solved in the latest version of FRG01B ?

    Apparently they're working on a dual-core 1Ghz Tegra-based phone. That would qualify as 2Ghz when spoken by someone who is in the same league as the genius who thought two external antennas right where people touch their phones...

    I hope they're making advances on the batteries, since it seems like a good possibility a dual core could eat through a charge pretty quickly.

    and your running stock? As in no Ocing kernal? Lol at 550mhz, if your phones heating up, and its not the battery, then theirs a problem lol. If your all stock, then i am not sure what to do... I can tell you what i would do but it involves flashing sbf which violates terms of service agreement... (your problem would be solved....)

    CDMA is the more recent technology and lower frequency doesn't mean outdated.

    Many indicators pointing to January 2011 for Iphone on VZW.[/QUOTE]

    Verizon CEO was talking about once LTE is here in 2012, it will do VoIP as well. I just hope Google Voice will be VoIP enabled sometime this year as Google said earlier this year.

    Darn no edit button. Disregard the statement above.

    According to my brother-n-law, the company he works out in Idaho, is currently testing iPhones' on Verizon network.
