RCS alive? Is this a late April's fools article?

Re: CDMA handoff "Verizon could also upgrade their entire network to Release 10 and attempt to implement something similar to eSRVCC, but that would've further delayed their VoLTE launch."

@milan03,

Which would be better?

Re: CDMA handoff I guess you could look at it that way. You can also compare it to Verizon's Tier 1 competitors that are offering VoLTE->3G/2G mid-call handoff just fine. Most of that has to do with 3GPP fallback architecture.

That opt-in on Verizon's site is clearly the safety created to put a concious decision on consumers for that exact lack of handoff.

Verizon could also upgrade their entire network to Release 10 and attempt to implement something similar to eSRVCC, but that would've further delayed their VoLTE launch.

Re: CDMA handoff @milan03,

Verizon service is typically viewed as the flagship with few dropped calls in most places. Why switch it up now... for premium service that will drop calls?

Re: CDMA handoff Sounds like the way it was 15 years ago when PCS arrived.   Then it was only in Metro areas.   At one point, one of the largest carriers here in Washington was successful...because it ran an analog network that served the rural areas not yet covered by the new mass market cell services!

Re: CDMA handoff There will be no handoff to CDMA. If you exit the LTE coverage area during that VoLTE call, your voice session completely drops.

I'm guessing this is why Verizon wants their subscribers to "Opt-In" to VoLTE by logging into their Verizon accounts and agreeing the terms... On other operators it's a matter of simply flipping the switch in the UE settings...

There is always something with Verizon.

Re: Future of Skype ...single-mode LTE phones...

That should be a boon for battery life on smartphones.

At least with mine, it seems like keeping the CDMA network active is the main drain of energy.

CDMA handoff Btw, Verizon appears to be launching VoLTE before it has tackled the issue of handoff with its 3G CDMA network. It's positioning making it opt in as supporting customer choice, but that's more likely because it can't do it seamlessly.

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? Definitely agree. We were left out of the gadget guys' group that got to try them earlier this month, but hopefully we'll get demo units soon.

Re: Future of Skype Will this just become normal for phone carriers to provide apps that do phone services?

I think it's already normal for carriers to provide phone services...this was the natural evolution for them, and it should be one thing -- THE thing -- they really get right.

And, yes, that day is coming next year for Verizon, which has said it will launch single-mode LTE phones then.
