AirVoice SIM in old iPhone 3G:
AirVoice SIM in old iPhone 2G:
Now compare those to my Verizon iPhone 4:
I used to get much faster data – around 3-4 Mbps speeds – when I used to have AT&T with my old iPhone 3G at this same location. It seems to me that even though AirVoice is using the AT&T network, speeds may be throttled. On the other hand, my current Verizon iPhone 4 isn’t doing so well either. So I think when I upgrade to the iPhone 5, I’ll get the AT&T version, as its 3G may be faster than Verizon’s 3G in my non-4G area at the mountain cabin.
