    AT&T Commercials: On VZW you can't talk and surf at the same time!

    But....yes you can, I do it at times and I tested it out just yesterday. You can talk on the phone, switch to speakerphone, return to the home screen, then launch the web browser and surf anywhere you want.

    Are they flat out lying or am I missing some marketing angle they are shooting for?

    CDMA Networks cannot handle them both because data is sent in streams, not packets like GSM. WIFI is not going over the network so yes you can do data over WIFI, and voice over the network, but you cannot to both over the actual Cell Network if on CDMA.

    Whats funny is, if you do it this way, your actually faster than using 3G.... I dont have an iphone, never wanted one.. Can you use wifi and phone at the same time with one? Does it even have wifi capability?
