Differences Between CDMA and GSM iPhone Call Settings Detailed

Although there aren’t many differences between the iPhone on Verizon when compared to the AT&T GSM model, there are a few subtle differences in how they work.

The first is quite a major difference in that conference calls are restricted to just 3 people on the Verizon model. This number includes your self. For business users, this could kill the deal as oft times, they need to talk to multiple people. Also, the Verizon iPhone doesn’t allow you to break off to private calls like the AT&T model does. When using the Verizon model you are either conferenced to someone else, or you hang up on someone else. AT&T gives the option to separate calls and hangup on 1 person at a time.

Other differences are detailed in the document below which are of course, not a major problem. The AT&T version allows you to use menus to switch call features on or off, while the Verizon model requires you dial a code such as *72 to switch call forwarding on or off. Like we mentioned, this isn’t a problem in general and just a list of the differences. What you will notice in the chart is that the AT&T model can handle up to five calls while the Verizon model is limited to two calls.

Anyway, other than the conference calling features, and of course the no data while talking, the Verizon differences are quite subtle.
