Network doesn't support it currently unless you're on WiFi. LTE (4G) will support it though :)

Its the nature of the protocol that VZW is using, Sprint too. CDMA does not allow voice/data simultaneously like GSM (AT&T & T-Mo) does. LTE will fix that, however.

Yeah, yeah.. I'm on my phone. So?

Its the only thing AT&T has going for it. Hence they always talk about it on the commercials.

Yea but this person also asked if u can text while on a call and u can. U should be able to text while on a cal on any feature phone or dumb phone as well because text is not data.

True! I seem to have missed that! OP, you should be able to text just fine while on a call as long as it is SMS and not MMS.

I believe you did it. But you had to have WiFi active. CMDA does not allow it, it's not capable of doing it.

You can send a text while on a call. I just put it on speaker phone then press the home button and send a text or go on the internet. Your phone is still completely usable while in a call.

To wrap this up:

1. Read all the posts prior to this.
2. You can text while on a call currently
3. Any network on CDMA (Sprint, Verizon, USCC) you cannot surf the internet while on a call.
4. If you have wifi enabled on your phone and hooked to wifi you can talk and surf at the same time
5. LTE will take care of the problem about talking and surfing simultaneously whether you're on wifi or not.
6. Read all the posts prior to this.

7. To take advantage of that feature of LTE, you'll need an LTE capable phone. No phone currently out is.

Yeah, yeah.. I'm on my phone. So?

8) Swap from Verizon and Droid X, got to At&T and buy an iPhone...or wait just a few more days/weeks/months until all 4G LTE pieces are in place for you..Phone, Service, and Plan.:)
