    why did verizon go with data only and not data and video for their 3g service??

    was it the price? or was it the same reason why their phones are always behind the times (they wait so long to get their new and cool phones; it's stupid)?

    the DV stood for Data/Voice, not Data/Video.



    They went EV-DO at first because it was already available, and DV was a few years off, and now since the next revision of DO speeds the uplink to speeds that can handle VOIP, they can just run everything as a data call rather than voice and data.

    Isn't Moto's DV over a year away? Verizon wanted to be ahead of the curve not behind it, and it also might be an issue of Moto vs. Qualcomm, since EV-DO is an Qualcomm innovation. EV-DV was not even around when Verizon decided to with DO. Originally Sprint was going to go with DV but they could not wait any longer for it.

    when I first read it and he said Data/Video I did not get what he was talking about for a second.

    yeah sorry i confused you. since ev-dv (as far as i know) can handle a video call, i got thrown off and thought the dv part meant data and video!! heheheh

    I think many wireless providers want to move into VOIP. It will save them tons of $$$$ if they can get rid of the old circuit switched calls and go packet switched.
