Surf and Talk on iphone 4s

Any idea if I should be able to surf and talk on the iphone 4s  at the same time with WiFi turned off?  I am getting multiple answers from Verizon.

No you can't... In order to do so you need wifi.

The 4G LTE phones allow for talking and surfing while on the 4G LTE network. Perhaps they thinking about that at the time.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Verizon is CDMA, as stated above, ONLY 4G LTE phones can talk and surf at the same time, other than that, ALL other phones cannot talk and surf at the sime time using 3G.

All we can do here is answer your question about talking and surfing simultaneously, which cannot be done and is no big secret.

Whether or not "they" lied to you will have to be decided by you. It would not be the first time a store rep gave out mistaken inormation. All carriers, too.

Yes all 4g can talk and data but thunderbolt can do on 3g as well. Maybe they ment to say only atat iphobe can do that but they fail to mention only atat. Maybe they thought because ata iphone could vzw version could also. For example when the bionic came out. Customer service thought it could have 8 - 10 devices hotspot although not totally important to me but it only can do 5 3g/4g. They took into assumption 4g phones are created equal.
