will Verizon and Sprint be able to talk and surf the web at the same time on the iPhone5? i only ask because i may be forced to pick something other than AT&T this time around :/

I asked Verizon that question and they told me it would because of LTE but if someone knows different say so

When you're on 4G/LTE - yes
When you're on 3G - no

Crap. That's how it works on all of the other LTE phones, but I just found out simultaneous voice and data won't work on the Verizon and Sprint iPhone 5s because of the dynamic antenna. Only one can be active at a time, and simultaneous voice and data need two operating at once.

Sorry for the misinformation; this news just came out this afternoon.

Well that's not good. I've gone back and forth on switching from AT&T 4 times today. Now I'm leaning towards staying put.

Running out of time to make the decision.

I'm still switching to Verizon. I'll miss that feature, but faster data (there's no AT&T LTE in my area) and better coverage is more important to me than simultaneous voice and data off of WiFi.
