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...

So first we learn that it has no NFC and now we learn that it cannot handle voice and LTE simultaneously. What's next? Are we going to find that the camera does not take shots during daylight?
