Will the next verizon Iphone 6 be able to surf and talk at the same time? Does anyone know anything about this? Will iphone 6 be able to do a conference call like up to 5 callers on one phone call?
Apple needs to put two separate antennas in the iPhone for it to do simultaneous voice and data on Verizon. One to connect to 1x and one to connect to LTE. I have a feeling that they wont do this since they haven't done it yet - and because it is more efficient to have a single antenna. Who knows though, maybe they'll be able to do something about it. I just think that its unlikely that this is a priority on their list of things to do. A good majority of the iPhones that Apple sells are GSM and they don't have a problem with the current setup.
As for the conference call issue, that's a limitation on Verizon's (CDMA) network. It might change when they do voLTE, but they aren't doing that right now or any time soon. I would say that this is almost a definite no.
Not until Volte comes out but that could take a while.
Apple wont add additional hardware, size and less battery life on their phone line app just for 1-2 particular carriers.
It will likely stay like it is now and cdma users will just keep telling themselves its a feature they don't care about anyway

Up to you.
I have one too with AT&T. And even though I get can get throttled after 5GB's they still let me upgrade and get subsidized priced iphones without losing my unlimited data plan.
The iPhone 5 and 5s are technically capable of it now. Verizon needs to deploy VoLTE however, for it to work.
This is entirely a network limitation, and not something Apple can compensate for no matter how many antennas they put in the thing. It's possible that this could be supported on VoLTE. IT depends on just how backward compatible Verizon's VoLTE ends up being with CDMA. My guess is you probably won't see this ability on Verizon for a really, really long time.
You're correct. In the meanwhile, my co-worker told me that if I turn on my wifi that while on a phone call, I can also surf the internet at the same time.The iPhone 5 and 5s are technically capable of it now. Verizon needs to deploy VoLTE however, for it to work.
Verizon was quoted as 2013,
*looks at calendar* Yeah, and how did that work out for ya?
In any case, I'm sure VoLTE is coming. Conferencing with up to 5 people, which is what the OP was asking about? I highly doubt that will happen anytime soon. Verizon would basically have to be okay with no CDMA fallback on VoLTE calls, and a difference in feature availability between the CDMA and LTE networks for voice. LTE, on ANY network, has a very long way to go before it can stand on its own without a fallback from its predecessor networks. Even Verizon's alleged "substantially complete" LTE network (which is hardly the case if they still have to refarm spectrum in 2015) is far from ready to ditch CDMA.
So, I doubt Verizon will be ready to go this route until they finally start sunsetting CDMA, which is still years out. And believe me, I more than anyone else would be really happy to see CDMA finally go. It's had its day and has worn out its welcome.
Okay. I see your point. But I'm still hoping that will work on the next coming IPhone 6.
