    As long as your phone is on a CDMA network (Verizon, Sprint). You will not be able too. This is not the phones fault this is the network problem.

    A GSM Network (ATT, T-Mobile) will allow you to do this.

    A rooted phone on a CDMA network is still a phone on a CDMA network.

    Also multi tasking is not defined as talking on the phone and surfing the web (using 2 networks).

    I don't now if it's been tested but it would be possible to use WiFi and talk on the phone at the same time.

    It has been tested, and it does work -- you can talk on the phone and browse the web if you're using a WiFi connection to do your web-browsing. There are videos of it on YouTube.

    (edit: No rooting required to do it, either.)

    You can also talk+surf if you're using SIPdroid or another VOIP client.

    And if you want to talk+surf on AT&T, you have to find a place with 3G coverage, AND manage to not get your call dropped.... good luck with that!

    I live just outside NYC and work in Manhattan. I've known for a long time that you can't surf and talk on the Verizon network. The funny thing is, I know many friends and coworkers with iPhones and maybe 3 have said that it's a function they use often.

    I've never needed to do it and I'm still on AT&T.

    I know over 100 with the iPhone and can Honestly say I've never seen any of them do it either.

    WHAT?! You're saying a company used marketing to turn a little-known or little-used feature into a point of contention?!

    And I thought it was just the beer companies making up new "technologies"... Sheesh.:)
