    I came from Motorola Droid world where we had to wait on voLTE to be able to do both at same time. Had to have advanced calling on to do it.

    Is that the case with this phone? I was going to turn off advanced calling for battery life...

    I'm with AT&T and I can call and use data at the same time.

    AT&T / T-Mobile can do this.

    For Verizon you must enable VoLTE (Advanced Calling) to do Voice & Data at the same time.

    Possibly if another carrier works for them. It is more a technology restriction versus Verizon doing anything.

    That's true but why deal with a company who's technology restricts their ability to use their phone to the fullest potential? AT&T and Tmobile can give these users the ability to have their phone take advantage of the latest tech which allows them to make calls and browse whatever app they want during calls.

    Besides, AT&T has the greatest 4G LTE coverage in all major areas.

    What makes me mad, is verizon has always treated me great, and i get great service, but the droid turbo was the first phone i got from them that you had to have advanced calling on to do siml voice/data. My note 2 3 and 4 didnt. But now the 5 does.

    Something to do with removing a radio in the phone?

    Yes, you are correct. This issue results from the fact that is has only 1 radio now. That said, the replies in this thread might be confusing to folks who don't have it.

    The GN5 DOES DO voice & Data on Verizon.

    It does require Advanced calling. If you disable advanced calling, it will not. work It's not an issue, and it works fine on Verizon for me.

    Below is why.


    GSM Carriers (AT&T / T-Mobile) – Both can use voice and data at the same. Either on HSPA or on LTE (using VoLTE).
    CDMA Carriers (Sprint / Verizon) – These carriers can only handle voice or data. Not both at the same time… Unless using VoLTE. Verizon currently has VoLTE whereas Sprint doesn’t. You may be asking – why is this? My old phone did this... which I am sure it did. A more detailed explanation is below.
    [INFO]The older phones had two CDMA radios put in them (such as the S3 on Sprint). One dedicated to voice -- another dedicated to data. Therefore you could do voice and data. GSM has always been one radio because that one radio can do both tasks at the same time. They got around it on CDMA by simply adding another radio in there and dedicating each one to one task.
    Now they're getting rid of that second CDMA radio. So therefore you can only use talk, or data -- not both at the same time. Now if you're using VoLTE for your calls it will allow voice and data since the call will be going through LTE (as data) so it is technically then all data which would bypass this restriction.[/INFO]

    Yes this feature on verizon sucks. All my calls dropped even though I'm in a 4g area. I called tech support, they replaced my phone, replaced my sim card and still no luck. I called back after the new phone dropped my call again and she told me that they are having issues with this feature working properly because its still a work in progress. Ok I totally understand that but why make ppl have to deal with this issue while you're still working out the kinks? From what verizon tells me all phones will be made like this. Like I said I'm all for improvements but I just wish they would wait until everything is ok first.

    This is a real issue for me. I've never had problems with Verizon dropping calls now just like that I'm dropping calls 4 and 5 times. I want to take this damn Turbo back and just use my Maxx until they straighten all this mess out. This is unacceptable. Don't put a product out as the best and brightest until you do a little more research. Smh!!! I'm really hating this!!! I used to talk smack to my friends about them being with other carriers and dropping calls. Now it's me!!! Smh!!!

    What is it about the advanced calling feature that you hate?

    Does it drain battery?

    To clear up some stuff. Verizon is going to 5G and the "plan" is that in 3-5 years, disconnect the 3G network. All new phones will have 1 single antenna. Thus, you either need to be on a data/HD/VoLTE call (which since you are using data, you can just use more data for internet) or you use the antenna to make the call over the cell signal, 1x, and no data. Once we have all 5G and 4G is the "fall back" signal, there will be much less of an issue. Cell call quality is dramatically better on VoLTE. It sucks. but its the future.

    Before the call drops I hear everything jus fine. I just wished they had everything well put together before it was introduced.

    Hopefully they will fix the issues. I definitely hear mixed reviews when it comes to this feature. For most of my friends around me -- They have no issues. A few friends up north though (Ohio, NJ, etc.) have random dropped calls. There never seems to be a common cause since some of them have full signals but experience the drops at random times.

    Yea when I was doing some troubleshooting with verizon tech, she told me it was a work in progress so hopefully they will take notice to all of the complaints and get the ball rolling a little faster.

    Well att doesn't officially allow tethering on the unlimited data plan, whereas Verizon does. TMobile does allow tethering on unlimited data, but only up to 7gb. Verizon offers Unlimited tethering with the Unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE hotspot addon.

    Also Verizon allows usage of a hotspot or broadband router or tablet on unlimited data. Att and tmobile do not.

    With regards to coverage, my coworker has att and has no signal at my desk at work . I get typically 20-60mbps on Verizon.

    Generally speaking, Verizon has the best coverage nationwide per independent testing by RootMetrics, pcmag, and others. With that said it depends on which carrier provides you the best service where you need it.
