My father works for Verizon Wireless and he came back with a few swag bags of stuff and some news about some of Verizon's plans.
Verizon is about to change their radio to allow features like talk and web at the same time for all "newer" model phones with certain chipsets. The Incredible is one of them. Also, 2.3 update is coming "soon." The HTC Rep. that he spoke with would say nothing more on the matter.


Thanks for reading.

Hmm... I was under the impression that it was the CDMA network technology that limited simultaneous talk/data. I could be wrong but if that were the case I don't know how they would be able to enable that on existing DIncs without physically changing chipsets on each device. Can someone correct me on this?

Well either we already had the capability but verizon just figured out how to unlock it or the simultaneous talk/data the rep is talking about is for the htc droid incredible 2 since their radio chipset is newer...but we will get GB before the end of the month

I'm pretty sure it's a no for the DINC, the DINC 2 will though, as it supports SVDO.

From my understanding the Thunderbolt was the first phone to support SVDO on Verizon and I imagine they used the same type of chip on the DINC2 since it was the next HTC phone out of the gate. I think it was just in trial still on the TBolt.


Just found on the net that it would need to have a MSM Qualcomm chip, the original DINC has a QSD Qualcomm chip.

my dads friend is head of data for all of western PA for verizon, he has phones like months before they come out, he got us a free 4g air card, before it came out too. I'll have my dad call him and ask him what he knows on the matter.

I wasn't expecting a single response! Haha.
The HTC rep. specified that it was the Incredible. I honestly do not know how they are going to work this out.

I would think it was for the Inc2, I doubt Inc1 has the Hardware to do it. Feel lazy to research but I swear I remember reading TBolt was the first with the Hardware to support it.
