    Does anybody know whether the LTE network capability will allow the iPhone 5 to use voice and data simultaneously on all 3 major US service providers?

    Or will AT&T maintain exclusivity for this functionality?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Sprint will be able support simultaneous voice and data as well once they get their LTE network up and running. Supposedly they will have ~150 cities covered by the end of the year, and 90% of their network is supposed to be LTE by the end of 2013. FWIW they are also supposed to be overhauling their 3G network in the meantime as well.

    According to The Verge (http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/13/3328492/iphone-5-simultaneous-voice-data-verizon-sprint) Sprint and Verizon won't support it on the iPhone 5, even when connected to LTE.
