Voice and Data on 3G


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is old news by now, but I just figured out that the E4GLTE is capable of using data while on a call. I was sitting here:

 

 

14160 Trinity Blvd

Fort Worth, TX 76155

at a Wendy's, on a call, and got an email notification.

 

I did a speed test and got this:

Which is way faster than I ever get with Sprint's 3G.

It is if you're connected to LTE, this was 3G Data + Voice.

 

That's what I was asking about. So I guess E4GLTE is the only phone so far capable of voice and 3g data.

But somehow I read here

http://insidesprintnow.wordpress.com/2012/05/25/svd-simultaneous-voice-data-on-lte-phones/

that all Sprint LTE phones are capable.

Hmmm, that's a good one, I guess we'll see. I know a few folks here have the Galaxy Nexus and they can't do SVD

I think the LG Viper 4G LTE is the only other phone that I can confirm works SVDO. And of course or lovely EVO LTE's! Whoot, as this is one of my favorite features!

In addition doesn't the tower have to have NV completed to do that? Which would suggest the far greater than average 3G speed.

 

Don't think it has to be a NV tower. That's the HD voice thing.

Reports are that the LG Viper can also do SVDO.

 

I have a Viper and can confirm that it does SVDO. It's great too!

Damn it. I just tried and it didn't work. Will have to wait for LTE.

 

Which phone do you have?

Looks like a G-Nex' date=' based on the profile.[/quote']

 

Thanks. I'm not at my computer to look right now.

SVDO capability is a side effect of other design requirements for the phones. The LG Viper LTE and EVO 4G LTE both require a dual-SOC design to achieve LTE capability and as such have dual antenna. As I understand it, this allows for two separate CDMA signals to be broadcast/received from the device simultaneously, thereby achieving SVDO.

 

It is not an advertised feature and probably never will be on these models.

 

SVDO only works in good coverage areas, and is not guaranteed anywhere, even with theoretically perfect coverage. Voice will always take priority over data when spectrum or signal strength is an issue.

No, that is no longer accurate.

 

The Viper and previous VZW handsets that support SVDO can do so because they utilize dual Qualcomm modems, typically one MSM paired with one MDM. Typically, the MDM chipset is used for LTE connectivity; however, since the MDM is also EV-DO capable, it opens up SVDO capability.

 

With the arrival of the Qualcomm MSM8960 (and other S4 chipsets), on the other hand, the EVO 4G LTE utilizes a single chipset that supports CDMA1X, EV-DO, and LTE, plus SVDO or SVLTE.

And I have been corrected. Haha.

 

As I said, wasn't completely sure, but that's how I understood it. I understood obviously the capabilities would change over time, just never though phone releases just a month or so apart would be the time frame it would be for Dual-SOC requirements to go away.

    • OK, I think I have given up on the TAC issue on my LG V60 and just resigned to get a new device.  Anyone have any strong recommendations for a device with good radio performance, can turn on and off individual bands and will fully map LTE and NR simultaneously in the SignalCheck Beta Maps?

    • I haven't caught a whiff of n41 down here in the South Sound, yet.  I am slowly finding more B41, though.  Recently in Shelton, the two Sprint Retain sites that were converted have B41 live now.  Their permits show n41 equipment.  But they just haven't fired them up, yet. Robert
    • Documentation says one thing, but reality can prove the documentation to be completely inaccurate once you actually test the equipment. I run into this pretty regularly at work with software and hardware I utilize.  "hey, it says it can do xyz" and I get a "mumble mumble mumble, yeah we never got that to actually work" or "that configuration actually doesn't exist", or "we are waiting on firmware" or "this functionality costs extra, buy this for $15,000/yr per radio and we will turn it on" blah blah blah.
    • Wonder if AT&T is doing some last minute deals with businesses, as to why HSPA is still online. Or maybe there are contracts in place that have pushed the "deadline" out in various places. Shoot, AT&T could be getting sued in local courts and the courts saying AT&T needs to keep it online until things are settled?
    • The main n41 channel was just moved up to 2639MHz this morning.  This means that channel spans from 2589MHz-2689MHz. With Sprint B41 at 2501.5MHz, and TMobile B41 spanning 2508MHz-2548MHz. That leaves room for a 40MHz n41 channel. If they drop one of the TMobile B41 channels, they could easily expand that to 60MHz. This all in line with their permit filings which indicate a second n41 carrier of <=80MHz.
