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

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.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
