Is there something wrong with my iPhone 5 I'm a Verizon customer and can't surf the web and talk unless on wifi. It's a 4g phone tho. Help!

Nope, there is nothing wrong with your set. Do not adjust the controls. On Verizon you can't talk and surf at the same time. You need to be on AT&T for that.

I'm grandfathered in a good plan but with AT&T you can't FaceTime unless your on wifi or pick a shared plan. Do you think Verizon will eventually allow that capability?

Don't think it will happen. It has to do with the type of network the Verizon uses verses AT&T.

The iPhone 5 has only two antennas, unlike the other Verizon LTE phones that have three. Verizon says that their system will be able to accommodate the present iPhone antenna layout in a couple of years, but we'll see.
