    I am not sure if this question was posted before. However, I was testing my Droid X by making a call and downloading an app at the same time. The call did not drop but I was not to get the Market Place or internet. I am not sure if anyone have an answer for this questions. :blink:

    Verizon is not behind ATT.. this is a function difference of network function. Once Verizon goes LTE... this limitation will be gone.

    k, this is a retarded question, but I haven't heard anything about this LTE. Is this a different system that verizon is trying or something?

    nevermind, found it, guess verizon is going to 4g, kool, will this effect the droid x in any way, will this help the x?

    No, the X does not have LTE capabilities. You will need to get a new phone, and probably billing plan, to exploit LTE when it comes out.

    LTE will (or should) launch end of this year but the first LTE phone will not be until late next year (this is of course subject to change :))

    yup, they will be releasing LTE cards for notebooks first november-december time period, then LTE phones will be out sometime early 2011, but i'm going to guess and say they won't be available until spring '11.

    From Verizon?? What do want to bet?

    As of right now Verizon is not even looking at a LTE phone and it takes some time to approve a phone. Their (verizon's) reasoning behind it is simple they are reconfiguring their network completely, if they release a phone to work on a unproven network and it does not work as intended (a very real possibility) they will take a huge hit. So they have made the decision to only release LTE for network cards so the bugs can be worked out.

    LTE is not an upgrade it is a new network that to date no one has working correctly.

    Metro PCS will be the first one out with LTE and they will launch with a handset, they are willing to roll the dice that they can get it to work. If they fail it will be bad but if it works they get a big boost. So the rewards out weight the risk for them not so for Verizon.
