AT&T hits Verizon iPhone with Failure to use Voice and Data at the Same Time

As reported the Verizon iPhone is selling like no other phone on Verizon ever before. The pre-sale for existing customers beat the launch day sales record of Verizon in the first 2 hours. That is pretty hefty and not only Google, but also AT&T has to think about what it means. AT&T just published a commercial that highlights the one thing that is not working on the Verizon iPhone.

On the Verizon CDMA network voice and data connection cannot be made simultaneously. You can not look something up on the web while you are on a call. Last October that were reports that Verizon is preparing its network to enable simultaneous voice and data. Apparently Verizon did not do it.

The ability to use simultaneous voice and data will not be missed by most users. Especially male users cannot handle it as males suck at multi-tasking. The AT&T commercial is therefore total fiction. It shows a guy who forgot an marriage anniversary and makes a reservation in a restaurant while on the call with his wife. Yeah right. I would be already use 100% of my brain to come up with excuses. Watch the ad below.
