    I had heard Verizon was unable to allow voice and data usage at the same time. However, when I got my DI I was able to surf the web while talking on the phone. Then this morning Verizon pushes out some update and suddenly when im on the phone 3g disappears.from the top bar and I get an error message that I can't connect to the web. What happened and is there anyway.to reverse this?!

    Sorry bud, data + voice is impossible on and CDMA network unless you are on WiFi. Any other claim is completely and totally false.

    Are you sure that you weren't using voice and wifi together before? As far as I know, Verizon has never supported simultaneous voice and data connections. As an alternative, most of vzw's recent smartphones allow voice + wifi to achieve the same thing....

    EDIT: looks like someone beat me to it lol

    It's not even something VZW could just allow anyway. It's a hardware limitation of CDMA.

    I'm pretty sure if the current CDMA spec allowed for both at once, Verizon wouldn't be finding ways to eliminate it...
