    It's not Apple's call. CDMA (the signal technology used by Verizon) does not have the ability to transfer both voice and data at the same time. GSM (the signal technology used by AT&T) does have this ability.

    T-Mobile also uses GSM technology. This is why, for an unlocked phone, it can be used with T-Mobile, but not with Sprint or Verizon. It's like the difference between gasoline and diesel fuel. You can't force a gasoline car to run on diesel. You can't force an AT&T phone to work on Verizon's signal.

    *BTW, you need to be 100% sure of what you're talking about if you're going to call people idiots...'cause you just made yourself look like a huge one.

    I can foresee the Verizon future ads "Who needs data & voice to work simultaneously when you don't have an unlimited data?".
    Good point!

    If this is true, I will SO be RUNNING to the Verizon iPhone whenever they get 4G working properly. I get spotty service with AT&T, and if iPhone 5 will run on 4G and it's not a total flop, I'm signing up as soon as my contract is up!

    I got stuck on the 2GB data plan with AT&T and called AT&T support several times trying to see if there was anyway I could get back on an unlimited plan, they pretty much said "not a chance in hell!" at the end of every phone call I asked if "they would ever bring back unlimited?" the operator said that they would not because ALL the other carriers do NOT offer unlimited data. If what they said holds any validity then maybe, just maybe AT&t will bring back unlimited data.

    I was talking to AT&T rep yesterday and all new customers automatically get enrolled in the 2GB data plan a month, i said well what if verizon offers unlimited will at&t change, and he said NO cuz we still have the fastest 3g Network and can use Voice and Data at the same time. I was like BOOOOO lol. But i have heard of a hack and I am not sure if it works still but at one point it did, i am going to try it when i get home from Italy with my 2G. Here is the link for that if anyone is interested.

The only reason people should switch is if they have no plans on upgrading ever from an iphone 4 and do not have 3g coverage with ATT, I feel bad for you guys.
    Agreed. I am grandfathered in since iphone 3GS, and now running an iphone 4. I use google maps and the phone in combo all the time...

    There is no way Im changing. I just checked my usage and Im over 6GB so far this billing cycle (4 days left).

    Id be curious to see what ATT does with 4.3 tethering and grandfathered plans...

    I to have the grandfathered unlimited plan One thing i would like to see is the tethering be free instead of charging someone 45.00/month that's insane just to channel the signal to a laptop LOL. I myself is using PDAnet, but still it would be nice just to be able to use the feature instead of having to figure out another way to tether. May hoping if Verizon is playing the game this way then maybe att will play up and offer the unlimited plan again with tethering

    I'm luckily grandfathered in for unlimited data...for the mean time. It'll take alot for me to leave and go to verizon. Everyone I talk to bout limitation of CDMA and they say I don't need to talk and surf the net simultaneously....they'll see. All I've got to say is....GO GO GO!! Free up ATT network.

    This article isn't entirely true anymore. Less than an hour ago Verizon retracted their "unlimited data" plan and will move to tierd plans.

    They are going to drop unlimited data shortly after launching the phone. Makes sense. Lure them in before dropping the plan.

    Sounds like an easy class-action bait & switch law suit waiting to happen.

    We wouldn't have this problem if you Americans weren't so sheep! Carriers will continue to rape us in plans because we rely on subsidize prices. Pay for an unlock phone and take it where you please!

    On the other hand, I am no carriers b***h... This is why one of my next phones will be an Nokia. Nokia has 5 band GSM radios that will work on any GSM network (Hint Apple)!

    This is just going to make AT&T drop prices again. I'm glad I still have my unlimited data plan on both my and the wifes IPhone 4 and iPad 3G.
