    Can anybody confirm (rumors and speculation don't really help me ) whether the Verizon GS4 will be able to do SVDO (simultaneous voice and data over 3G)?

    The GS3 on Verizon CAN do SVDO and the Note 2 on Verizon canNOT. My Rezound DOES do SVDO on Verizon and I definitely don't want to lose that ability. The VZW LTE network is a lot of places, but it's not everywhere yet. Before I go to a VZW phone that can't do SVDO, I would switch to AT&T. I almost bought a Note 2 on AT&T already, for that very reason. I held off and now I think I'd rather get an S4 than a N2. So, the answer to the SVDO question will determine whether staying on VZW is an option I consider or not.

    Someone mentioned that it didn't have it but not 100% sure.

    Thanks. I've also "heard" that it doesn't.

    I'm looking for a 100% answer.

    Every LTE phone on Verizon, except the iPhone 5 does simultaneous voice and 4G LTE data.

    SVDO (as I said above) is a 3G technology. It pertains to doing simultaneous voice and 3G data. Definitely not every 3G or 4G LTE phone on Verizon can do SVDO. The HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Rezound, and Samsung Galaxy S3 can, that I know of. The Verizon Note 2 cannot. The question is about the Verizon GS4.

    i know, and im telling you i went onto the verizon website and one of the questions asked was does the note 2 do svdo, and someone answered yes. i had a droid bionic that also did svdo, the s3 also does it. so im assuming the s4 will

    Unfortunately, svdo is not supported by hardware. CDMA voice and evdo data share the same antenna path, so they cannot transmit simultaneously.

    Lte and CDMA have different antennas so they can be used simultaneously (svlte)

    You already said that every LTE phone on Verizon (except iPhone 5) does it, and I know that that is not true. I know that the VZW Note 2 does not. Can you provide a link to where you saw that all those phones (or at least the Note 2) do? "somebody" said yes does not mean that "somebody" is correct.

    The most accurate information would be based on the fcc filing. Every phone has one. The dna does not support svdo.

    If you have specific phones that you want to know, I can look it up for you

    I think he got it confused. They all do it over LTE, but certain ones can also do it over 3g as well( well except the iphone 5 because, well its apple lol)

    If this is true then why is it that my Verizon galaxy s4, set to LTE/CDMA, cuts off any data connection I have going every time I answer a phone call?

    Either, you don't have a 4G connection when you get your call, or the app that's doing data is coded to pause the data connection when you get a call, or you're running a non-stock ROM that doesn't work right.

    Ha ha! Cool! Keep at it and you'll get your white plate! I got my first white plate at the end of '93. Laid out from '95 - '00 and came back and they sent me back to the Meatgrinder class and to earn my white plate again. I won the CCS yellow plate SE region Overall Championship in '03. :-)
