    ok ok
    what the hell is the deal with this ?
    my neighbor has an evo on sprint in ny
    and he says to me " now all they have to do is make a phone where you can surf the web and make a call at the same time " ..my jaw hit the floor ..he is unable to surf the web and make a call at the same time
    i also had this problem on verizon with my droid 2 .. i was told it was becuase verizon wasnt a "true" 3g network /.???
    i have been making calls and surfing the web on my G1 since day one !
    this would be totally unexceptable for me

    infact just yesterday i was using my mt4g as a mobile hotspot for my laptop out on my site in the hamptons ny while taking and reciving calls and playing friends with words lol

    what about at&t ? and iphone i think the iphone can even do this
    is there a problem with my friends evo?? thnx guys

    Its the type of network that you are on. Sprint and Verizon are both CDMA networks and T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM networks. CDMA does not allow voice and data at the same time where GSM does. Thats why your G1 on T-Mobile can take calls and surf the internet while your friend's Evo on Sprint cannot. The same with the iPhone. The AT&T version can talk and surf at the same time whereas the Verizon version cannot. But I have heard that the new 4G LTE network that Verizon is switching to will allow voice and data at the same time.

    So, no there is no problem with your friend's Evo. Its just the type of network that Sprint uses.

    I was surprised that some people could not call and surf at the same time. I don't do it often, but when I have to, I could do it. I didn't expect anything else. Btw, I'm on Bell Canada.
