Really a non-issue to me and more 90% of all subs.

Just like lots of people don't use 30-40gbs a month on their cellular devices, many don't require simultaneous voice and data. And many don't really ever think of doing both. Only the enthusiast and maybe the business sector do, but then again they don;t make up the majority of the subs base either.

And given that all other single channel LTE devices can do both voice and data on Sprint accept the iphone 5/5S this is really a non-issue. The Spark devices have lots of radios active and at this time and can't do both voice and because of it in this first generation of devices. Not a big deal future ones most likely will.

Like I've previously mentioned, I'd much rather have faster data instead. Plus people barely talk on the phone as it is today anyway. I may use less than 500 minutes a month. But I use tons of data on my device. And if it's really that bad that I needed to use both voice and data, I can just fire up my google voice and make a call that way, and surf the web to my hearts content.
