    I've had the G2 for Sprint since 10/11 and realized something today while on a conference call. As with the iPhone for Sprint, you are unable to access 4G/3G data while on a voice call. (You're ok on WiFi).

    I'm on approximately 5 hours of conference: calls per week, and I need to be able to access email, log into training portals for work, etc...For those of you that are heavy GPS users, this means every time you take a phone call, you have to essentially restart your trip.

    I spoke to our LG Sales Rep and he said this was the 1st he's heard of it, but I called 2 other colleagues that were also given the phone from LG and sure enough, it doesn't work. I know for a fact, this is possible on every other android phone, including the Optimus G. I am holding out hope that this can be solved with a firmware update, but I'm afraid it's the same as the iPhones; it's the way the processor works. :/

    This SUCKS

    Here's a long thread discussing the issue (LG G2 -- the first Sprint tri band LTE handset (was "LG Optimus G2") - Page 29 - LG - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates - Page 29), but you're right, it looks like it doesn't support simultaneous voice and data. That's pretty surprising. On Verizon, simultaneous voice and data isn't possible only if you're trying to use the 3G mobile data network. If you have good 4G reception, it's possible, since the 4G antenna is separate from the voice network antenna.

    It has been known for quite some time ever since Qualcomm has come out with the S4 Pro series of SOCs. They changed something in them where they aren't like the other SOCs as in the GS3 and the EVO 4G LTE. Don't blame Sprint or Verizon or anyone else, it squarely rest on Qualcomm, and don't go saying I can do it on AT&T and TMobile, because they GSM works differently than CDMA does.

    Worked fine on the Snapdragon 600 in my ONE, as well as the S4. Was I misinformed about it working on Verizon? I'm aware it's a chip issue and how it responds to CDMA in the iPhone's, but I'm shocked LG let this happen.

    SvDo = Simultaneous voice and data. Aka 3G data while on a voice call.
    SvLTE = Simultaneous LTE data with voice.

    Both of these were scrapped in favor of Triband LTE. I'd say it's a fair trade off but the only time you'll be able to use voice and data at the same time is when you're on WiFi.

    No, the LG G2.
    The G2 is the first Android, tri-band capable phone Sprint has carried, so kids like it's something we need to get used to moving forward.

    You can do SVDO under LTE and Wifi, just can't do it under 3G like the GS3 and The EVO 4G LTE.

    That's what I thought, but not on the G2 for Sprint... only WiFi

    Then the G2 had the same problem the note 2 does than. It was how the antennas was made.
