New Network Capability to Allow Multitasking on the Verizon iPhone

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 04:00 AM

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/...ner=rss&emc=rss

"One important weapon in AT&T's arsenal against Verizon in the iPhone arms race is that Verizon's wireless network does not allow smartphone owners to make voice calls and surf the Web at the same time."

Until you use it, not sure you will realize how handy it is to talk on the phone and be able to surf the 'Net for data so this will be a big bonus for Verizon customers. The next version of their network, which they call LTE, will allow for the simultaneous data and voice capability that we AT&T users have come to love. This isn't for at least a year however, but they are going to demonstrate it while at the Mobile World Congress being held this week in Barcelona.

"Google's official Google Voice app for iPhone has just hit the iTunes App Store."

Unfortunately for those of you outside of the United States, you are out of luck on this one. But for those of us who are in the United States we will be able to do many things with our Google Voice account with this app such as receive push notifications for text or voicemail, send free text messages, display your Google Voice number when calling and much more. Here is the iTunes link.

Unofficial Google Voice App Approved

"An unofficial yet fully functional Google Voice app called "GV Connect" has just hit the App Store. This isn't Sean Kovac's GV Mobile + but it allows for GV calling, texting, voicemails, and more."

The app is called GV Connect and is available in iTunes for $2.99 USD [affiliate link]. From the brief description in iTunes, it appears this might be a handy app if you use Google Voice. I have a Google Voice account but haven't really used it all that much, how about you? Anyone out there using Google Voice on a regular basis and find this interesting?

ICE Made Easy

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "The Competition" @ 11:00 PM

"Everybody's got a go-to in case of emergency (ICE) contact, but emergencies have a nasty habit of not caring whether your ICE contact is available to pick up the phone. Reader snappingleather's clever solution: Expand your ICE reach with Google Voice."

Now that pretty much anyone can get a Google Voice number, this is a pretty nifty trick from LifeHacker if you incorporate ICE numbers (in case of emergency) in your contacts. Basically it involves setting up a Google Voice number so that it rings several of your ICE contacts so you only have to list the one number.
