    Default Talk and Surf

    I really miss being able to talk and surf on 3g like my Thunderbolt! You would think the Nexus would have this capability.

    No, you can't. Simultaneous voice and EVDO data is simply not possible on the Galaxy Nexus. The Thunderbolt achieved this by some funky radio layout -- I don't understand the specifics of it, but it was hardware related, and the capability resulted in slow[er] data speeds during calls because of reduced radio power, as well as increased battery drain. These reasons are why Verizon never marketed the simultaneous voice and data capabilities of the handset.

    Coming from the Thunderbolt, I think it's unfortunate that I no longer have the capability... But then I think about how many times I have actually used that functionality on my Thunderbolt. That number? A whopping 0. You won't see me losing any sleep over the lack of this functionality on the Nexus.

    Ah, my mistake. Forgive me -- it's late... err... early. :P

    As others said, I've had no problem talking and texting simultaneously on the Nexus.

    Woah, loads of fail right there.

    1. It's not an ATT thing. It's a GSM thing, which means T-Mobile phones can do it too.

    2. Apple didn't patent it.

    Gsm is correct but that's what I meant and I just read the other day a whole article about apple patenting the ability to do "other things" while on a call. Which they(and at&t) heavily advertised before going cdma.

    apple patents everything.
    I am sure they wanted the word macintosh removed from all fruit and veggie markets because they called their computer a mac.

    I'm confused. I was on a call the other night, and my friend asked me to go look at his site and I did while still talking to him on the phone.
