    The important question is whether one can talk, text, surf, and drive at the same time.

    No doubt it's my advanced age, but I can't even imagine the circumstances that require such multitasking.

    So, AT&T found the one thing that CDMA users can't do (except for on WiFi), in all practicality, how often do the AT&T users really talk and surf simultaneously?

    My guess is that since the vast majority of verizon phones won't
    simultaneously surf and talk, they thought they could get away with saying that.

    Verizon needs to do a comercial with a Verizon phone in a rural area on the internet next to a cow.... then put ATT next to the cow on the phone saying "can you hear me now?" While searching on the internet...

    And who surfs the web and talks at the same time? I got an idea--- I will call you back.

    My cousin is a notary, and not only does all aforemetioned multitasking, but also downloads and edits 70-150 page documents! How crazy is that?

    Please tell me she doesn't drive the roads around Seattle. Or if she does, please post her license plate number. Personally, I'm looking forward to people being put in jail and having their cars impounded for such "multitasking."

    hmm... actually havnt tried this... never needed too. lol

    AT&T might have us on this. too bad on AT&T phones, half the time will be spent looking for a signal to be able to make a call the whole time to be able to test it

    Doesn't the commercial claim "multitasking".... because the Droid will do that as you can be in a phone call and go check other numbers to will your party waits, or even play a game or anything "not" releated to the network multitasks just fine.... its just that the 3g network cannot multitask.......
    But if I remember right thats changing next year.... but its still up in the air as to whether it will be all hardware needed or if a firmware update will bring the droid up to the task.

    I can't really think of any "need" for talking to someone on a phone and browsing the net or accessing network abilities at the same time?......

    Maybe if the person I'm talking to is really boring?

    Apparently all of the time, if you believe those commercials.
