    voice delay latency

    On the 9530, OS v 5.0.328, when making a call to another party, or when receiving a call to me, I have grown used to the cell phone life that a great deal of delay is involved. I may be responding to a question, when the other party interrupts b/c they have not heard the entire sentence. Same thing may occur if I hear them and respond in mid sentence. Effect: stop talk stop talk ect.
    Is this a fact of cell phone life? Verizon carrier. Occurs whether calling locally or long distance. When using a land line, there is no delay, and one becomes spoiled.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    There have been a lot of complaints like this as of late.. I think it has something to do with the alltel merger and the towers being changed. It is not your phone it is the network

    Very interesting to think about. However, before the merger, had the same experience. I just thought it was the nature of cell phone life and one had to live with it. If you did want a real conversation just use landline. The phrase cell phone voice delay latency gets many pops on google.

    Right but I experience none in my area. And when you say before the merger you said in the OP this started on .328.. which came out long after the merger started

    That must be great to have no delay in your area. There is light at the end of the cell phone tunnel.
    I did state the current version .328, but in previous versions I experienced same. Overall, irregardless of version I learned to slow down speaking and listening rate and that provided both parties cover.
    But your encouragement gives me reason to call them and point it out and see what their direction is.

    I would if you have been having it that bad for more than 4-6 months there should be something reported

    This seems to be a regional/area problem. Is that an accurate assessment?

    Looks like Verizon has pushed a new PRL version. This might help with the latency.
    Dial *22899 then let your device update. My new PRL is 51716.
