    Not that I ever use it, but it is cool to know that I can do data/voice at the same time over 3G (WiFi off)!!! I know I can over 4G, but that is not an option as of now! It should be soon. A city about an hour away has it. I might have to make the trip, just to try t out!!!

    Thats cool and all... but you would drive 2 hours just to watch it work? 3G is so painfully slow compared to 4G too... When I see the 3G icon in there I just mentally assume that data isn't worth using anyway. Guess I am spoiled after a week of 20 to 40 Mbit/s internet on 4G.

    I noticed that working yesterday in Sierra Vista, AZ. I got a gtalk message (data) while on the phone. I had heard they were updating CDMA but that was the first I had seen it work. I can verify that it's in operation for you. :-)

    this has been posted some time ago. If you want to test it, just use the "phone info" app in the play store and switch to cdma auto prl. This will force 3g.

    yeah, believe there was an article on Droid-Life about it acting like it was some huge feat that no one knew about. Heck, even the early documentation showed it as supporting voice and data over 3G and we already knew the processor supported it.

    iirc, droid-life took it from the fcc filing.

    This was always a Verizon issue not a manufacturer issue. Verizon did not implement the full CDMA spec which has always allowed for voice and data at the same time. I used to work at Motorola (In IT not Phone engineering) and one of the original designers of the CDMA spec told me this.

    Do you mean like being able to search stuff on the internet and talk at the same time?

    Hmm. I didn't know CDMA was actually capable of it. I thought it was just the downside of CDMA. Since LTE is GSM based, it's no surprise that it works, but never knew VZW had the capability of making it happen. One more reason to hate VZW

    Yeah, CDMA has been capable of it for a while but neither Verizon nor Sprint made the changes required. The Thunderbolt was the first but Verizon didn't advertise it because it apparently didn't live up to their standards. The Thunderbolt (and Rezound) did it by having separate modems so the GSIII is the first to do so with 1 chip and true SVDO.

    Well, it turns out, I won't have to go far to try 4G, because LTE was just turned on in the town I work!!! I can't believe I just downloaded a entire CD in just 1min and 10 secs!!!!!!!!!!! Love 4G!!!!!!
