    Ordered my 5S online. I was wondering if anyone with a 5S on Verizon can tell me if you can surf and talk, like AT&T?

    Only on Wifi. ATT can do this because they're on a GSM network.

    No. Not on the iPhone. Other phone models available on VZW's network will, but the iPhone doesn't have the necessary hardware. Blame Apple.


    Wrong wrong wrong. Not only on AT&T any longer.
    Please, research before you post or at the very least, note that you may be wrong or you aren't sure.

    The only reason the iPhone cannot do this on Verizon's network is that it requires another antenna. All the Android phones support data+talk on Verizon. It is no longer a CDMA limitation and hasn't been for some time.

    Though to avoid the extra antenna, I don't see Apple supporting this until voice over LTE is rolled out with Verizon.
