Yeah, it's not going to happen. Verizons network operates on CDMA based technology which does not allow for the simultaneous transfer of data while on a voice call, unless you're in a wifi area. Laughing

This means if you have Verizon, then talk and surf is OUT. The same thing goes for Sprint and most prepaid networks. On TMobile it'll work to a certain extent, but not everywhere as their network is still rather IFFY. That being said, as Verizon implements LTE, they are actually moving towards becoming a GSM based operator, which means someday you'll be able to do it, just not yet. It'll probably be another 3-5 years at least. If you really need talk and surf, which is a legimately important feature for a lot of people, you're only option is to switch to AT&T if you're in the US, lol, or move to Europe where almost every network is GSM based.
