Consumer Reports Can't Get Behind Verizon's iPhone 4

| Filed under: Tech Talk

Although iPhone users are chomping at the bit to use their device on the Verizon network, Consumer Reports is recommending that everyone hold off on purchasing the new phone.

It is possible the consumers would be stuck with a “short-lived” device as it has many shortcomings. The device fails to hold simultaneous data and voice sessions, which may be the result of an antenna issue.

"This is a transitional phone to tide Verizon through until the summer," said the magazine.

A new model will be released mid-year.

Can U wait until summer for Verizon's iPhone?!

    Simultaneous voice & data is not possible because of the CDMA network, not because of antenna issues. If a user is in a WiFi area, they are capable of voice & data usage at the same time- but not if they're just on the Verizon network. A new phone with upgraded antennae won't fix this, Verizon needs a new network (and they're working on that).

    OMG Perez, why dont you read carefully before you missinform people, is not an antena issue is the network the problem, Verizon will have the iPhone 4 in their CDMA network, wich can only be used for either voice or data but not both at the same time. Geez!!

    I saved up for the iphone and got it a few months ago. I've had NO problems with it and love it. Maybe I'm one of the few but it is a pretty nice phone to have

    lol goes to show how little you actually know about the product let alone the network.

    next time you chose to spread rumors please have at least a few facts to back yourself up because this is just like watching a deaf kid listening to an ipod.

    Uhh no verizon phone can talk and use data at the same time - maybe when they have the 4g lte in..it has nothing to do with the antenna. Seriously do you check any facts or just make shit up?

    Andriod phones are better because they have more free apps. Other than that its about equal to the iphone. Just saying.

    Until the release of the droids, no verizon phone has been capable to using data while during a phone call.. something I've been used to, cannot wait until my upgrate on the 12th to finally get the best phone on the best network!

    YES! I already decided to wait until they get all the kinks worked out anyway.
