    I know Cdma does not support voice and data usage simaltaniously, but can't Vz give us say another port on the network tied to the phone so that it is possible

    Chances are this is not going to happen. Not with their current infrastructure.

    Best thing to do is setup a SIP client/service (e.g. Vonage, Gizmo, MagicJack, etc) and use that to make your phone calls via data, and most likely if you need another data connection, hopefully it will also connect. I had my Vonage Softphone client working (sort of...couldn't call every number, not sure why) via 3G and WiFi, using the Sipdroid app. All the issues were credential and port settings related, but the concept is successful.

    My DROIDs were returned, but I guess if you can stream internet audio, and then browse the web, you should be ok. Come to think of it, I believe that worked for me before, so you should be ok.

    Going to have to wait for the 4G network for that. So far I love verizons network but miss being able to talk and look at a map or google search something at the same time.

    The 4g network will be rolling out next year and is already being tested in some markets. This supports all the voice and data you could ever want to do...and does it at incredible speeds.

    Verizon has already begun building out their LTE Network and you will start seeing those phones late in 2010 and then in 2011 they should be pretty close to full release. :) Then we will be able to have voice and data at the same time. :)

    Anyone who is in the Boston area might know about the LTE towers that VZW has been erecting all over the place. I am looking forward to this time next year.

    But is this version of the Droid 4G compliant? Will VZ's 4G require SIM Cards?

    Not likely. The 4G network would require the phone to have different hardware.

    LTE is a GSM variant. So nothing we have now will work on the 4G network. No sure about the SIM card but I would think it would.
