    It does this because CDMA cannot transmit data and voice at the same time over 3G. It might stay connected with wifi, but not sure.

    Just like when you computer loses connection, AIM logs you out. Aim should still receive offline messages and forward them to you when you reconnect. Not sure if Meebo reconnects automatically or not. I do also know that Meebo developers have acknowledged connection problems of some sort and are working on a fix.

    Nice, but that is still a ways off. VZ will be trialing LTE in about 30 cities by that same timeframe. LTE can't get here quick enough for me ...

    True, but for those of us not in a major city, the enhanced CDMA 3G capabilities are the only improvement in the near future. I don't expect to see 4G in my area for another 4 years or so, and that is being optimistic.
