Anyone having the issue where you can't use any data apps while talking on the phone?

Seemed to be a major selling point of going with AT&T over Verizon, but I can't get Maps, Messages, Safari, or anything else that would use data to work while on LTE/4G.

It works fine here.
When on LTE and a call comes in it goes back down to 3G/4G when you talk but I can access data and talk on the phone fine with my i5 on AT&T.

Hm... maybe service area? In the San Francisco Bay Area, I asked two other coworkers to test their phone, and same result. Very slow or no data access while on a call.

I'm in the Bay Area and have no trouble. It goes to 4G during phone calls and switches back to LTE shortly after. Speed is fine. It's not like I need to stream Netflix while I'm on a call.
