We finally have LTE and it's lightening fast here. Our HSPA signal is amazing here too so for me to say the difference is really noticeable is something. Most thought it wouldn't be too much faster than HSPA, anyway although it may be fast we cannot talk and surf the web using it like HSPA. I don't like that. Anyone else feeling the same way?

You can continue to talk and surf simultaneously. Voice is handled over the HSPA network.

It should. As Met said, voice is handled over HSPA which means when you make a phone call your radio automatically switches back over to HSPA when pulling an LTE signal. Try to make a call with LTE turned on and watch the LTE indicator switch to 4G in the status bar.

At this point in time, LTE handles data only. So your phone will still be able to do simultaneous voice and data but the data will perform at HSPA rates.

After a few days of having the LTE it did start to do this as you guys said. Thanks.
