    That's the most ridiculous thing I've read all day today

    Drop better quality @ a more reasonable price on the nations WORST network for something so trivial...

    yes its coming. No I don't know when.
    Sprint won't do this for the same reason they won't do EVDV-- there's no point in investing in technology that they are already phasing out. Why would Sprint spend millions or billions doing this when they are already migrating to Wimax?

    i highly doubt it, ive been with sprint for almost 7 years and none of my phones have ever been able to do this and this is my 3rd smartphone. as someone else said i think it is a limitation of the current network technology

    It is an interesting article and would be nice, however, I doubt Sprint will do this. They are trying to phase into WiMax, so spending extra money and time into this is not wise, at least when it comes to business sense. I'm guessing that WiMax will have this.

    If i had known this before my 30 days were up I would of not kept the Pre. This is a huge deal breaker. You can't do anything like scheduling appointments, looking at your calendar, sending email, NOTHING while you talk. Pure PS!

    EVDO Rev A supports both data and voice at the same time. If you're in a Rev A coverage area, this is possible with Sprint as the Pre is a Rev A device.

    That is not true unfortunately.

    EVDO spec does not support simultaneous voice and data. EVDV did- but EVDV is dead- abandoned by all the major carriers in favor of lte/wimax. The reasoning behind this is voip. There is no need for separate voice and data signaling. Voip allows for a single stream that supports all functions. Just like you can stream radio, surf the web and send email at the same time. VoIP lets voice just become another application. All that you need to ensure is that the end user device and network can tag and prioritize the voice packets and that there is a data connection that is low in latency, jitter and has the capacity to support the call. (not much bandwidth is required)

    4g is capable of all this.

    I am pretty sure it will. It has to. That's where technology is leaning towards. One example is Google Voice. You can't make phone calls over your computer through google voice yet but I am sure it'll happen.

    Now it's just a matter of how the major phone carrier will rant and rave about it. They would like to keep it separate so they can charge every little piece of the pie.

    That is not the case. Because everything is synchronized you can access and modify contacts, schedules, etc. with no problem at all. I do it all the time.

    And once you hang up, everything you did while on the phone will get synchronized back to the various servers.

    I did not realize this. Thanks. It not as bad then, but still not a good thing at all it really limits things for business use.
