    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

    That's a hardware limitation... supposedly we wont be seeing SVDO or SVLTE on Sprint w/ TriBand phones...

    Bande part: LG G2 is the first announced Sprint tri band LTE handset - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

    The S4 can do Voice and data while on WiFi or LTE. You might not have the final software when the phone releases yet though.

    What's missing from the S4 is tri-band lte capability. Apparently with Sprint, you cannot have both SVLTE and tri-band lte on the same device.

    This is all BS! I can do both data and call on my S3! That includes 3G! This is very important.... Today I was in a call for an hour and 35 minutes with eBay and PayPal for a personal issue. I was driving around town, and if it weren't because my S3 can do 3G/Lte and voice at the same time, I would had been screwed!

    Yes, and I can do this on my HTC EVO 4g LTE too. However, I can read and realize this is only affects Tri-Band phones which neither of our phones are.

    Sounds like this is a tradeoff that people will have to make. :-(

    This is an unfortunate downside to tri-band capability. I really hope qualcomm can find a way around this issue.

    Yep, the GS3 has hardware to support SVDO (Simultaneous Voice and EV-DO data), the GS4 does not.

    Actually the Sprint S4 cannot do 3G and voice simultaneously (which is called SVDO). It only has the capability to do wifi and LTE with voice simultaneously.
