    If you take this news as a whole, it's not nearly as bad as it sounds at first. Verizon's version of the new Moto X will not have simultaneous voice & data when it launches. Apparently, it will be the first Android device which will need Big Red’s new Advanced Calling 1.0 feature in order to enable simultaneous voice and data.

    Even though it won't have this functionality immediately out of the box, according to the leaked internal Verizon memo, the company plans an update later this fall which will bring the Advanced calling 1.0 to the device, thus enabling simultaneous voice and data as well as VoLTE (Voice over LTE). Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Supposedly, the reason VZW is handling it this way is because they plan to move away from their aging CDMA network, and this will help facilitate that.

    I wish they would tell us when the new Droids were coming out. Or did they and I just missed it?

    Will not really effect me. It's very rare I ever have had a need to do this.

    Yes, I am anxiously awaiting that upgrade too. I am on the Edge plan so I'll send on the MAXX and replace it with the next iteration of this phone.

    doesn't 4g already allow voice and data simultaneously already? or is this something different. I know I constantly use my note 2 on 4g while making calls without wifi...

    Yes it does, but the new phones are sporting a new Advanced Calling 1.0 communication system as dgstorm mentioned and they want the phones on the new system rather than on the old. Why is somewhat of a mystery. Perhaps the new chips don't support the old protocols. Perhaps they just want these phones to have been on the new system from day one rather than transitioning from old to new.
