I know with the newer phones SVDO is supposed to be a possibility after NV. Well found out today that on my GS3 I can do it now in a non-NV area(Kentucky). No I wasn't on Wifi or LTE. Anybody else tried to do it?

I've been loving me some wonderful SVDO since late May. I'm in a non NV market.

I have double checked my SVDO capabilities several times since getting the GS3 and EVO LTE. However, I really don't have the need for simultaneous voice and data, for the most part.

I haven't used it as much as i used to now that i have cable internet at home, plus the issues i had with my first Viper and the severe battery drain, but when necessity arises, I'll be using it a lot again.

Thanks to the first phone being defective, yes. However, when i first got it i could easily go 10-12 hours with no problem. Now i have to keep it plugged in all the time.

If anyone is running a custom ROM, you might want to check of the ROM is written to support SVDO. The last 2 CM10 ROMs I ran did not support SVLTE. I didn't even notice until I saw someone complain about it at xda.

My old job allowed me to use my cell during work as long as I wasn't on the phone, which sometimes could be for about an hour. Having the iphOne on AT&T was the best, being able to look up movie times and make reservations while on the phone with a friend. I'm excited for it to start showing up in more sprint phones. Hopefully the new iPhone will finally bring it over to CDMA networks.

I also enjoy svdo capabilities as well. I travel a lot so I spend at least 65% of my time away from home, so any chance I get I am on the phone with my girl talking. It is so convenient to send and receive emails for work or maybe even taking a funny picture and sending to her while we are talking. If you are the kind of person that really don't use that many minutes then I can see it not being a big deal but for someone like me who use about 4 hours of talk time every day when I am out of town then its a very nice feature to have.

Yeah, I use about 2 hours a month, so it's nearly pointless for me

When I am actually at home, an average of about two weeks at a time, I probably don't even accumulate an hour of actual talk time in those two weeks so if I didn't travel my usage would probably be the same as yours.

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
