If it was strictly a network issue then voice + data over 3G wouldn't work on the Galaxy S III on Sprint or Verizon.

Seems like you've given up on your futile debate and accepted that the issue at hand is indeed a phone issue. Does my previous statement still hold true?

Are you guys really that stupid?


A South Korean telecom provider is launching what appears to be the world’s first commercially available Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service tomorrow. SK Telecom announced that its high-definition Voice over LTE technology will be embedded in the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE and “most of” its future LTE smartphones.

4G LTE services are widely available on smartphones in the US and around the world, but the LTE speeds are reserved for data services. Voice calls still fall back to 3G or even 2G networks. “Nowhere in the world is Voice over LTE commercially available today,” Michael Marcus, an ex-FCC official who is now a wireless industry consultant, told Ars in an interview last week.

According to Infonetics Research, “the first VoLTE services [in the US are] launching in late 2012," with Verizon Wireless and Metro PCS planning a launch for this year while AT&T and Clearwire wait until 2013. Verizon may actually not launch Voice over LTE until 2013 too, though. In an interview with Network World, Verizon Network VP Hans Leutenegger was quoted as saying that Voice over LTE may not be deployed “until well into next year” because Verizon is satisfied with its current voice network.

Damn, I was told 2 weeks ago that I would be able to do voice a data on the LTE network. I was not aware that the phone had to support it.

I already signed up with Verizon and got the iPhone 5.

Note if you watch the keynote about the iPhone 5, they talk about a ultra wireless antenna for better call clarity and I think this is what they choose over adding the other antenna .

You will.
















In about a year when Verizon switch over it's voice to LTE. Until then, you have to use voice and wifi

How important do you have to be to need this feature? Keep in mind I'm on AT&T so this feature is available for me, but I don't care about it nor do I ever use it.

Serious question: how often are you on the phone and you need to use the internet at the same time? Y'all let those AT&T commercials gas you up

There's absolutely nothing important enough on my web browser that if someone calls me, I have to simultaneously chat and continue browsing. To each their own I guess.

Major down side to the iPhone 5. It doesnt support SVDO, which allows simultaneus voice and data over a CDMA network. I wanted to cop this phone but this is damn near a deal breaker for me. sh*t, even the GS3, rezound and other phones already have this feature. You can actually talk and surf same time on 3G with the Rezound.

Did you not miss the fact of extra antennas. This makes up for the fact the network can't handle voice and data. One antenna uses one network for and the other antenna uses another network for voice. They're not using the same network for voice and data.

LTE is an advanced form of what we call gsm so it has the capability. maybe verizon doesnt have it set up but that's no excuse for apple to not include the extra antenna.

Verizon doesn't have it set up yet. Nobody in the US has it set up yet. They're using LTE for data. They're going to roll out voice LTE next year. iPhone doesn't have a 5 in screen. It doesn't have room to accomodate an extra antenna for technology that will be updated next year.

It's not just that, some people like myself use for business and if you are waiting on a email to come through you will not be able to see it if you are on the phone

Also turn-by-turn does not work when you are on the phone either.

Verizon will fix this in a year though when they upgrade there network.
