    Is there any word if VZW's network will ever be capable of doing simultaneous talk & data? I bought the window mount for my droid x yesterday, & was using the turn-by-turn navigation for the first time. Although it's missing some fetures that I would like it to have that my Garmin Nuvi 1350 does - I love the fact that the maps are always up to date, free of charge, & that traffic is also provided free of charge! :) dancedroid

    The only drawback is that while on a call, the phone loses its data connection. Although I despise AT&T with a passion! - and would never give them my business, I have to admit that them doing simultaneous voice & data is not only a cool feature, but a practical one.

    This is a limitation of CDMA vs GSM (meaning, Sprint has the same problem but T-Mo is fine). However, LTE should make it possible to do simultaneous talk and data.

    No, CDMA technology does not allow it.

    So this would requier the [next generation of] droids to be 4G - meaning that we're still in the waiting room.

    When Big Red switches to LTE (4G), it will be possible. You can only do it with AT&T when its on 3G btw..and we've all seen the coverage map for that! Haha!!

    Not the same as with AT&T, but I thought if you were on WiFi you had both voice and data.

    so wait LTE is an app or an update or something? - or is it a hardware thing? Apologies for the stupid questions, but I am completely to the Android way of things; I used a blackberry for years.

    The only way now is with wifi.

    LTE stands for Long Term Evolution, doesn't it?

    LTE is the next generation wireless network. We are using 3g right now, LTE will be 4g.

    The only way is if you are connected to wifi, and then you receive a call.
