    I've had my sprint Samsung Galaxy s5 for months now and I love it. Never really any problems. The one thing that pisses me off is that I can't talk on the phone and use my data at the same time. My previous phone htcEvo 4g LTE let me do it. This is was more like a downgrade in that sense. Is this the future of smart phones? Is it only a sprint thing? It really sucks not being able to look stuff up while you're on the phone.

    I think it's more of a Sprint thing. Are you on Spark? See the discussion here: Galaxy S5 Sprint Spark kills data + voice ca… | Sprint Samsung Galaxy S 5 | XDA Forums

    Only select vzw phones could talk and surf in the past due to being CDMA. Now that verizon has volte enabled they can. T-Mobile and Att always had that ability.

    I'm with Verizon and I've have been able to talk and use the internet since I got the S5 soon after its release. IIRC I think I could do this with my previous phone, the HTC DNA, as well. If it matters I live in NYC.

    Sprint uses CDMA...cannot work on this type of network. VRZ has both CDMA and GSM. ATT uses GSM.

    As it was explained to me:

    AT&T recently sued Verizon and Sprint for patent infringement, on their Talk & Surf feature. AT&T won. So, from that point on, all newer Android phones, NOT on the AT&T network, can no longer Talk & Surf, unless you are using Wi-Fi!

    Thats It! Thats why older phones can still do it, but GS5's on Verizon or Sprint can not! Not sure about T-Mobile.

    I have a mobile hotspot, so by using my Wi-Fi, I can still Talk & Surf. But, if I'm out of range, I can't. Otherwise, you have to end your call to Surf, or send/receive pics.

    Sorry, I dont make the rules! :-(

    This should resolve all issues with talk and surfing on the samsung galaxy s5. Go to your dial pad and punch in ##72786#. This will reset the provisioning on your phone. Your phone will disconnect from all sprint towers and reconnect. Once your phone has finished rebooting, it will do a hands free activation. After that is finished, smile and enjoy just like my last customer!!!!

    I don't know why carriers have to butcher phone features so badly. Just look at all the stuff that the Galaxy S5 can do, optionwise, then look at what was stripped out (for what reason???). I'm in Canada, and can talk while surfing (speaker or BT to chat and then read email, FB, etc...). What I can't do though is use multi-user. Why? Because I don't have it.

    For some reason, my ATT phones have always been no talk and surf. May be the area I'm in, as when I start a phone call I drop to Edge. If I'm on Wifi, that's a different story.

    The sprint lte phones can do talk and data at once.. With the triband spark phones ( which the gs5 falls under) they disabled it because the phones are single radio (aka the older lte phones would keep the lte radio on while making a call over CDMA, while the gs5 will drop the lte entirely and just have the CDMA which can't use data over calls)

    i'm with verizon and I added the advanced calling 1.0 and my phone and my parents phones weren't able if get calls or make them! I called support and they had to turn it off! My mom's and my phones are the galaxy note 5 and my dads phone is the galaxy s5!
    Its stupid that we don't have this feature with these phones but did with our galaxy s4!
    Took me 4 hours to be able to get calls and make calls again. New phones should have the feature of using whatever while on a call!

    It's mostly a Sprint thing. I also had the Evo LTE and it was to my knowledge the only Sprint phone that could surf on 3G or 4G and call at the same time.

    Some Sprint phones will do it on 4G still today. Basically now, if it's a Sprint Spark phone you are out of luck. The BlackBerry Q10 would do it on 4G only and I think the Galaxy S4 also. If it's a phone on Sprint that only uses the 1900 megahertz bands for 4G then you can talk/surf at the same time. I'm not sure what was so special about the Evo that it would do this on 3G.

    In fact, upon attempting this on another phone using the same code I was connected to a Verizon tower and told me that could not be completed. :s

    Kinda weird.

    But, can you do those steps with the Samsung 7 that no longer has dual antennas??

    I also hve the Sprint Galaxy 4 no problem with talk & surf because, it has dual antennas. As opposed to the new Samsung 7 which have downgraded to one antenna. Pple have to complain to their perspective cellphone providers

    Sprint still doesn't have any new phones that support this I believe. Most recent is the Note listed above, Galaxy S4, and the Evo 4G LTE and the BlackBerry Q10 . That generation does. Newer you are out of luck.
