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.

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
