    I was reading about the htc thunderbolt on phandroid and in addition to the cool features we already know about like a front facing camera it's being said that it has the capability of making calls and using data at the same time, a feature till now only available on at&t. A feature that is pretty nice to have at some times.

    I believe simultaneous voice and data is only available over 4G, so once you move out of 4G and into 3G you lose the ability. Considering theres barely any 4G coverage it doesn't mean much... unless you have 4G coverage.

    Any reason why this was posted in the Droid X forums?

    No, it is over 3G. The technology is called SVDO (like EVDO). Supposedly, the call goes on 1Rxtt and the data is on EVDO (3G). The reason the Thunderbolt can do this is it has an SVDO chip inside. The problem is the data is apparently much slower than if you were data only, so they're not going to advertise it.
