Can't use 3G during phone calls....
one month into owning a droid x and i can't complete any operation that requires the 3G network to complete while i'm mid-phone call (ie. send a pic tex, email, browse web, etc.). everything goes back to working normally when i hang up so i know it's not an issue with service.
as this wasn't always the case i'm sure i screwed something up but on the off chance i didn't, has this happened to anyone else?

It's not just a disadvantage of Verizon, it's a limitation of the CDMA technology. Latest updates to the 1XEVDO technology have opened up simultaneous Data and Voice, but neither Verizon or Sprint ever fully activated the features. You should still be able to send and receive text messages, but you won't be able to do anything that requires actual data (Web browsing, emails, etc). This will be a non-issue with LTE, but for now it still remains.

It is only a limitation of 3g. I have surfed and talked while on 4g wimax and it worked great. Normally talking and using data it texting is not something I do, but I was using the phone as a hotspot and needed to make a call.
