Will the iOS 4.3.2 update fix the Verizon iPad 2 connectivity issues?

Summary:The Apple iPad 2 3G for Verizon has been causing some people connectivity issues and according to BGR the next update may fix the issues.

Readers know I bought and thoroughly enjoy using my Apple iPad 2 with AT&T 3G service. I have had a few readers email me about connectivity issues with the Verizon 3G model and after hearing about their woes I am glad I made the last minute decision to stick with AT&T. According to Boy Genius Report Apple is about to release iOS 4.3.2 to all iOS devices and it may fix the Verizon issues.

As posted on the All Things Digital site, Apple issued a statement on Friday stating that they are looking into the issue. They did not state whether it was a Verizon or Apple issue and are simply investigating it. There are something like six pages of comments on the issue on their own Apple support forums so they had to make some acknowledgement. In some cases I heard they have been letting people exchange faulty devices for ones that don't have the issue. I understand that the problem is that 3G is lost and the iPad switches to roaming and then requires a reset to get back to 3G. I can confirm that my AT&T 3G iPad connects flawlessly every time and does not have this issue.

The iOS 4.3.2 update is going to be coming to all the latest iOS devices and it will include some minor enhancements, fixes, and security updates.
