    who cares about talking on the phone and surfing the web at the same time?
    Maybe its just me but does anyone care that we can't do that on a Droid?

    Actually, we can. I saw that commercial and decided to give it a try. It worked.

    There have been times when I needed to access the web while on the phone. Few and far between but it has been needed. We can only do it in Wi-Fi but not really a big dael to me. Personally I think Verizon could give us a way to do it, however since they are still talking with apple about taking over the iphone I don't think they will.

    haha.

    Yeah, I like Verizon a lot more over ATT but if Sprint had the droid, or a comparable Android OS based phone, I would have probably gone with them because I know people that have nothing but good things to say about them.

    it's honestly a nice feature and a feature i miss with my Droid. However, I'm usually at home so I just run wifi and can talk on the phone at the same time. It's very helpful when you need it though.

    Like it or not, that is one feature that AT&T has over Verizon's network, but we don't get dropped calls and 3g everywhere!:icon_ banana:

    you were on Wifi. it's a network limitation that Verizon can't handle data/talk at the same time. only GSM is capable of this, if i remember correctly, which AT&T is.

    I haven't had the need to talk and surf at the same time on 3g, and since I'm usually at home or work where there is Wi-Fi, it's really not an issue for me. I'll stick with Verizon, who will have 4g widely deployed long before AT&T, and 4g allows simultaneous voice and data.

    It's sad when a carrier asks their own customers to keep down their data usage. And their only claim is you can surf the web and talk at the same time? Sad, sad, sad...

    There have been a few times where I have wanted to talk and surf at the same time, more than I expected actually. Def not a deal breaker for me though, and the pros outweigh the few cons like that.

    My opinion is that if you are browsing the net, you arent really paying attention to the conversation....everyone is guilty of saying "huh" after replying to a text message when they are on a call. It really is sad that all they can respond with is an ad that says they have the most popular smartphones, and they can talk and surf at the same time. And the postcard commercial, if you'll notice he doesnt mention anything about 3G coverage, just all the places AT&T has "coverage". I'm sure Verizon could prolly flip a switch and we'd all be able to talk and surf at the same time. Then what would be there argument?

    Also take into consideration that the talk and surf is only limited to 3G coverage. Once the drop into ATT's huge 2G network its either talk or surf not both.

    Just noticed that, bums me out a little bit but like other people said that feature is only needed rarely. And I'll take better coverage over that any day.:icon_ banana:
