The ongoing debate between Verizon vs AT&T, it continues. This time, issues with the Verizon iPad 2 may give users another reason to want to use the AT&T version.
According to reports, Apple has confirmed that a "small number" of Verizon iPad 2 users are having connectivity problems. This has also become apparent based on message boards being filled with complaints of users being unable to connect to Verizon's network, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Apple said that they were aware of the problem and investigating it. In typical fashion, they did not say much more than that, and would not say how many iPads may be affected or when they would get a fix out. Verizon chose not to comment on the matter.
Either way, it's going to be a headache for Verizon iPad 2 owners, and a headache for Verizon and Apple's customer service reps who are probably getting endless numbers of calls from people saying they cannot connect their iPad to the 3G network.
The issues seem to come after people turn the device's connection off. Once they turn it back on and try to reconnect, they are unable. Looks like no device is without issue, whether on AT&T's network or Verizon's.
Let's just hope this gets sorted out so that iPad owners can get back to their browsing. If the issue becomes widespread, maybe it will be more fodder for AT&T commercials, as the two cellular giants have been exchanging blows for the past several months.
And this is one more reason to get iPad 2 AT&T model.
