Sprint's 3G network has always been capable of doing this; but they feared the network would be overloaded so all of their phones disabled the simultaneous function.

CDMA does have the capability, but in this case it's not the network, it's the phone. The EVO has separate radios for data and voice, just like the HTC Rezound and Thunderbolt.

I remember the first time I discovered this limitation. I was at a laundromat and trying to switch car insurance carriers. I had to walk around and find a random open WiFi signal to look up my bank account number while I was on the phone with the agent.

Then I never ended up going with them, and I have the same car insurance I've had since I've been able to drive.

In retrospect, finding a random access point to look up my bank account number seems like a pretty terrible idea. Fortunately, it was like 3 years ago, and I don't have that bank account anymore.

Wow. This phone just keeps getting g better and better. I always missed that functionality when I switched from my at&t iPhone to my sprint evo. I wish the lte was ready but I very rarely use the 4g wimac now as it is.
