Interesting - now I really want to dig more. If you find it, please post it in here.
well i found this: Wirefly: 'no Skype' on Thunderbolt, but simultaneous 3G voice and data is a go; ships on March 17th -- Engadget
but i'd still like to know, more technically, why - and why older phones can't take advantage of it
Verizon ws experimenting with simultaneous voice and data over the EVDO network. I believe they were calling it SVDO.
As others have stated, reps and ad's weren't advertising it because the reliability was unknown.
so I guess it requires a specific type of antenna in the phone then?
It's supported on the chipset.
I formally apologize for mentioning simultaneous voice/data. I have derailed the thread.
So, any other conflicting ideas on the limited number of participants in a conference call? Or is "the network" the final answer?
You can't derail an off-topic thread! It's no big deal, it ties in with what we're talking about.
I do think the "network" is the final answer on the conference call, though. However, I wonder if this enhanced chipset and software upgrade on the backend allows for more on the conf call as well...
So theoretically they could push an OTA that would allow IP4 to have simultaneous voice & data?
No. The chipset has to support that feature.
After poking around on the VZW site a bit, I don't see the actual term 'conferencing'. I only see 3-way calling.
I don't know why I even care, I'll never use it, it just seemed odd, that's all.
I think Verizon can do voice and data on 3g all this time. I don't believe their pre 4g network had any limitation. I thought I read somewhere Verizon decided to not allow it to keep from dropping calls like att. Vzw is all about having a better network or at least doing what they can to get there. I just figured they were protecting people by not allowing both.
If I was vzw and I knew that allowing data and voice was possible but might make as many or more dropped calls then att then I wouldn't add it in either. Again I'm not sure this is the exact case
