    I am currently using a galaxy s4 which screen is awesome (but I am missing my iphone 5 bad) will the new iPhone for VZ have data and calling?

    only if Verizon has deployed SVLTE or VoLTE. i havent heard anything about it, or if they are even working on it yet. i assume the natural progression will eventually convert everything to LTE and allow voice and data simultaneously.

    edit: i found a link, i dont know how accurate it is/may be but it looks like mid 2014 until we see it happening. so maybe there is a good chance the 5S will be VoLTE capable, but wont work until the network has been deployed.

    It's unlikely.

    Apple would need to add additional hardware to make this work. I'd absolutely love it if so but I really don't see Apple doing it.

    Even on GSM networks an iPhone will drop off LTE but is capable of maintaining 3G/4G during a call. S4 (and even S3 I believe) has additional antenna for maintaining LTE data.
