i wish you could surf the web and talk to people at the same time like on tmobile or at&t


Recommended Posts

wouldnt it be better if sprint could have phones that could talk and surf at the same time that would be a phone i would buy like the iphone on at&t

 

It is a device feature. Many Sprint phones will allow surfing WiMax or WiFi and talking on the phone. The LG Viper and Galaxy Nexus will allow LTE and talking on the phone (SVLTE). And the new EVO LTE will allow 3G, LTE and WiFi simulatenously while talking on the phone (SVDO and SVLTE).

Yep-- the Viper has SVDO like the Rezound and Thunderbolt-- and apparently, the LTE EVO as well! All LTE phones do SVLTE just like WiMax phones did voice with WiMax (I guess-- never witnessed WiMax in operation).

SVWiMax works great when you get a good WiMax signal.

 

Edit: I'd be perfectly happy with SVDO if nothing else was available.

Wait the viper has the MDM chip in it the same as the rezound?.....ha Duh. LOL silly oversight there by me if that's the case.

I appreciate the SVDO and SVLTE features we now enjoy, but I have to wonder how you can surf much with the phone against your face? I always thought this was a pretty dumb, mostly useless feature.

Agreed. I can just imagine a bunch of people using speakerphone in a nice peaceful restaurant so they can also use data.

Speakerphone works great, or bluetooth and wired headsets make that happen.

And when they fully implement PTT on CDMA and you have to listen to someone blaring their conversation on speaker in the checkout line at Wally World.

Let me reenact someone talking on the phone and surfing at the same time: ". . . . . . . . . . . uh huh . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . uh huh . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . uh huh . . . . . . . . . . uh yeah, I'm listening."

I think the for me the mayor part of the problem is if your downloading something, it stops and then resume. That would be great to download a ROM over LTE and call someone at the same time to tell them, don't call me, i'm gonna be fixing my phone. Yes, i have to admit it, i'm a flashaholic. :unsure:

I dont remember anyone complaining about this until the giant 3G/footprint whore off that verizon and att had a few years ago, when att finally settled in saying " the network that allows you to talk -and- text in more places" bla bla bla.

 

If 100 people value the feature, id imagine that about 10 of them have a real world opportunity to benefit from it while the other 90 have had their mind made up since they saw the att commercial where the guy " made reservations for his girls bday while she reminded him about her bday" .... and thought to themselves " that could be me"

I do occassionally use simultaneous voice and web. It doesnt happen for me when Im barrelling down the highway at 75mph. Im usually at my office, my home or one of the many state offices around New Mexico I visit.

 

Someone calls me. They say they sent me something to look at, and often it's my wife, and they want me to look at it and discuss with them on the phone.

 

However, Im almost always on WiFi when this happens. And sometimes when at state offices in Santa Fe, Farmington and Albuquerque I can sometimes be on WiMax too. So I can do simulataneous voice and web without issues.

 

For me, it is only an issue when Im driving. And Im not going to use it then anyway. I just tell the offending party I will check it out when I get to my destination because Im busy avoiding other insane New Mexican drivers.

 

And simultaneous voice and LTE will be more than sufficient in the long term, because Sprint is taking LTE over its entire footprint. Once you have LTE coverage, you can talk and surf to hearts desire.

It's really annoying when my downloads fail because someone called me' date=' especially if it happens to be a large file. Also, wifi calling would be nice.[/quote']

 

I never download "large" files via 3G. I even have 1Mbps+ speeds. Its too slow for large files. I download large files on WiFi.

 

The largest things I ever download on 3G are occassional apps and songs. Usually 3 to 4 MB, tops.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
