iPhone 5 cannot do simultaneous voice and LTE data on CDMA - read the full textIt has been discovered that the iPhone 5 won't be able to do simultaneous voice and LTE data on CDMA networks. This has been independently confirmed by both Verizon as well as Sprint in the US. Now it's not that you cannot do voice and LTE data together on CDMA; there are phones out there...

 

Sort by:

it will be a problem for cdma places and when lte becomes the international standard. but then still a deal breaker for someone who knows how to multitask.

CDMA is old technology. Why still use it? GSM is the international standard.

It's not so bad if we cannot use data while using voice. The question is, while we are using data, can the call then comes in? Now that would be a big issue!
(one thing for sure, competitors are going to have a field day making fun of this limitation)

I really think this news is gonna be irrelkevant to most iphone users, as most of them are not even that smart to multitask. As long as its released by crapple, they're gonna buy it...goodluck to you guys, while others are enjoying advanced technology, you're enjoying a bigger screen and thinner phone...very smart...tsk tsk

That doesn't really matter so much. It's good they have sacrificed this option for thickness, it is really cool! You always have to make a compromisse anyway.. I am personally waiting for Lumia 920 and i know i will have to live without e.g. Amoled screen or Fm transmitter (lol). Well, if I was richer i would buy both, Lumia 920 and iPhone 5. Both of them have a mindblowing design, their specs also for me are absolutely excellent.

Its not a big deal.it can be compensated for 4 INCHES RETINA display and thinner iphone.i will wait for Tim Cook to say that that's right way to use a phone.voice first before data..nyahahaha

I think tHis news is irrelevant, as iphone users are not even that smart to mutitask in the first place. As long as it came from crapple, their good with it, hahah...even an old n95 can mutitask...

> In reply to [deleted post]Data is not only used for looking something up, though Apple users can be forgiven for taking such a naive view. It can be used to load pages in background, upload pics to SNS, downloading songs and apps, and other things.

When will you guys stop pretending that if your god-phone doesn't have something it is not relevant?
