Facetime is pure data it does not use the voice network


actually it uses wifi only so it is a mute point unless they hack the phone

Uh oh, Engadget is reporting that the buttons have moved slightly because of the antenna design which means all current cases that incorporate the buttons, wont work with your new phone....too bad for you switchers, great news for the the case manufacturers....if this is indeed the case as Engadget reports it 


Engadget didnt have to report that. It was very clear in the picture of the phone Verizon had up during the announcement. The left side antena break moved from the top left by headphone jack to the top left above the mute switch so they buttons were moved down.

"if it can work over the cellular data network then no - Verizon network cannot do voice and data at the same time since it is CDMA"

 

And that statement was incorrect. Facetime is data only reguardless if its hacked and being used on a cell data network or wifi. So it would still work on the verizon data network if hacked or if Verizon allows Facetime via cell network.

Re: Verizon iPhone Officially Announced

So, by moving the bands on the sides and top of the iPhone, is that an admission by Apple that it was a problem? I never really had a prob with it. Just putting it out there.

They said the changes to the band was made due to CDMA antenna design. Read into it what you want.

They said that it was because of the CDMA chip required a different configuration......BUT, who knows....we'll see if and when the VZW boards are cluttered with antenna issue problems like it was here.

Interesting comment.  AT&T's coverage stinks now and isn't getting much better.

 

Time to calculate the early termination fee.

Re: Verizon iPhone Officially Announced

Then you get to buy another iPhone from Verizon. Plus, 20 months before your eligible for an upgrade. But, if you have an i4, that will bring a good chunk of change on eBay...may even cover the ETF fee and price of the new iPhone.

suspect it is to late already - they would have had to sell it before the announcement.
