    There were many posts about people planning to switch from AT&T to Verizon/Sprint with most believing that they would be able to use voice and data simultaneously on LTE. With the news today that you will not be able to use data (unless on WiFi) while on a call, are you still planning to switch?

    I am curious about this too. There were a lot of people threatening to switch carriers from ATT.

    I am still thinking about switching even though I like being able to use data and voice at the same time. In Orange County they are about the same but I do go to NoCal often and my Verizon iPad 3 almost always has a way better signal there. I have certainly dropped far more calls with AT&T than I did with Verizon (switched for the iPhone 4) but things have been better with my 4S.

    I was going to. Now I don't intend to. Probably won't upgrade with AT&T either since I don't want to be locked into them. I guess I'll wait for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 or whatever they call it unless Verizon rolls out VoLTE very soon

    I wonder what restricts data and voice at the same time. ATT has been doing this for years!

    Limitation of CDMA that GSM does not suffer from.

    I am having a hard time Leaving AT&T because they're allowing me to keep my unlimited data, but have wanted to switch to Verizon because I always thought Verizon was more reliable. At the fork in the road- Anyone want to chime in with a suggestion?
