    Default simultaneous 3g data and voice

    I have a question. Since not all of the United States is covered with LTE which has simultaneous voice and data, will the GN have it in when in a 3g coverage area?

    My Tbolt has it and I find myself using that convenience all the time.

    3G Data + Voice simultaneously can be done on HSPA networks.

    LTE, yes.

    But not on normal CDMA networks.

    not true...

    if it has EVDO Rev. A, like the HTC thunderbolt

    then it can do simultaneous voice/data on both the 4G network and the 3G network

    That's what I'm asking. Will it have the same capabilities as the Tbolt on vzw's 3g rev a ehrpd network?

    I dont see any reason why its cant..

    from what I read it routes the call on the 1X connection and then allows data on the evdo connection

    not to sure but you can read for yourself..

    T bolt was the only one that ever had the capability so far.

    Not quite. The Thunderbolt has a unique radio solution not seen in any other device yet, and will likely not be seen in the Galaxy Nexus. All LTE devices sans the Thunderbolt handle cdma voice and data on one radio, and LTE on a second. This allows 4G to transmit at the same time as voice is active, but not 3G and voice.

    The Thunderbolt has voice on one radio, and 3G +LTE on the second radio. This is what allows simultaneous voice and data regardless of data network you are using.

    tl;dr version:

    Unless the Galaxy Nexus was sporting the same radios as the Thunderbolt, its almost 100% guaranteed you will not see 3G and voice at the same time.

    The Rezound/Vigor is expected to have this feature based on the FCC docs.

    On another HTC only thing. Do any other android based software phones have word wrap, where the page reconfigures when you zoom in without it being wider then the screen? Can do it on my T Bolt

    The only android phone I've ever had has been a HTC. I thought all android phones did it.

    Looks like the answer is no. It's kind of sad because this is a sweet feature. However, this probably does not do your battery life any favors. My hope is the lte reach is such that it should be OK. Plus, you should be able to do both on wifi at home. Tbolt is in a class alone in this regard.

    Yupper. Samsung phones do the automatic text wrapping when pinch-zooming. Touchwiz takes care of that. It's amazing to me that Android doesn't do this natively as we approach the end of 2011, still. Bugs me a bit, oh well. Maybe in Jellybean :-)

    Incorrect. My thunderbolt does it on SVDO.

    My DX did that, except it required a double tap after you zoomed. The TBolt is automatic. I like the automatic feature a lot. But as long as the double tap thing works I'm cool with it. Hell my iPad running iOS 5 I'm typing on right now can't do it at all. One of the many many things I dislike about this "magical" device.
