    I'm new to smart phones, but should I be able to get online while I'm on the phone? My girlfriend is able to do it with her iphone 4. Why can't I?

    Her iphone must be on at&t because verizon phones can not get on internet and talk at the same time. Even though this is true now in the future our phones maybe able to with an update on the CDMA network. so we will have to wait and see if our phone can later. but as of right now the only way you can do it is with wifi and calling.

    Not possible on Verizon. Unless she's using an unreleased iPhone 4 with 4G LTE, then maybe. TBH, sounds like you are just trolling...

    CDMA is not capable of this.

    It's very possible she's using wifi at the same time. So this can work then?

    Yes. This should work on any Verizon smartphone with Wifi capability.

    She would have to be using a service for calls over wifi like Skype.

    ??? Why??? you can talk on the phone using the 3G and surf over the WiFi. It isn't a one or the other thing.

    And this would be a good question for those Verizon 4G LTE users out there. Can you talk and surf at the same time? Being that the only reason we can't do it on VZW now is that they do Voice over the 3G network.

    AT&T does voice over the EDGE network. iPhones have the ability only when they are in 3G coverage areas. If you are stuck on EDGE only then they are in the same boat.

    You can go online via wifi while talking to someone with any Verizon smartphone, I just got my MDX2 and I always go online while talking to my girlfriend. I have wifi at home so any one with wifi at home or any other wifi place should be able to go online.

    You can talk if you have a separate Wifi network available (ie at home or Starbucks, etc). I was told that you can use Skype if you don't have a separate wifi.
