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...

I constantly use my phone for voice and data - that is the whole point of a smartphone! Talk to someone whilst looking up information online, maps, directions, movie times, business names etc etc. My Android phones have done this since day one. My anti Apple friends were right, it's bling over substance. Typing this on Apple's much better thought out and versatile product - MacBook Air 13".

Are they talking about using data while on a call? My sony x10 did this....sadly my samsung ace and s3 doesnt....its just a small disadvantage only effect you if you using ur phone as a modem. I know many phones that doesnt allow both at the same time so.... ja

isn't it common for CDMA handsets?
i previously had Nokia 6275i, Samsung SCH-i899, Samsung SCH-i509, LG Chocolate ID90C, and some Chinese-made CDMA phones.
all of them cannot do simultaneous data & voice caall.
you have to choose between data or voice call.

that's why i stopped using CDMA, and switch to GSM.
GSM phones are better than CDMA phones, since they capable to do simultaneous data & voice call at once.

Why is everybody complaining about ip5? Rather than looking about negatives, why not concentrate what the new phone does offer, for me 112 g is amazing and a big selling point

So you are fucked up if you are trying to have handfree conversation while you are using your online data (calendar, gps, internet search or anything else, in fact, everything else !!!)

I have to say this is a HUGE disappointment and a total non-sense.
