    Um, what? I find that hard to believe. Every Android phone I've ever used allowed Talk+Data at the same time while on LTE. Some phones, such as the Droid line, even did it on 3G. Why wouldn't the X?

    In fact, the only phone I've "tried" that didn't allow this was the iPhone 5.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 (Verizon)
    You must have a much better S5 than the one I have.

    I have a 4g showing in the display, BUT it WILL NOT let me use the internet while on a phone call.

    Never has, and I doubt that it ever will. Not as long as we are stuck with the CDMA mess.

    There must be something wrong then, because it's fact that you should be able to use data while on a voice call. My first Galaxy was the S3 and that could do it with no issue. My S4 could also do it, as could my Thunderbolt, BlackBerry Q10, Moto X (2013), all on Verizon. For most devices, you do need to be connected to LTE to have simultaneous voice and data - the data uses LTE and the call uses CDMA (1x). Your S5 is absolutely capable of this.

    I just tested this. I am on Verizon. I used my office landline phone to call my S5 on 4G (Wifi not connected), and successfully surfed the web while the call was connected. FWIW, I am in the Milwaukee area and always have a strong LTE signal.

    You must have a defective phone. Mine and everybody else I know who has an S5 can do both. Might want to call Verizon about that.

    Hey Scipper,

    I live in Mass my father in Tuscon AZ i have been playing around with many apps to Video Call From my phone Galaxy S5 to Iphone 6 his phone...we are both on Verizon and both have UDP ..we both activated VOLTE. Video call went great dropped a few times but we loved it. And the only free useful app we found that worked between galaxy s5 and iphone 6 was "Viber" its great. I mean we couldnt even get hangouts to work. Skype cost money.

    Ok then....we tried calling each other without video call, I dialed him regular With VOLTE turned on i called him and he said he could not hear me at all...this did NOT work at all I then turned VOLTE off....he could hear me perfectly. So in my experience galaxy s5 to iphone 6 video call great but useless in making a phone call to him turned on. I still have VOLTE on my phone but only use it for vido calls to dad. When it gets its bugs worked out i will happily activate it...who doesn't want HD crystsl clear calls.....Will keep eyes and ears open if anyone hears of a fix or if it gets better please let me know thankyou guys
