I can't surf the web while on a call unless I'm on wifi. Is it the phone, apple, or the provider. I need answers, I can't deal with not having basic features for 2 years. I might as well have purchased an android.

So you're saying that this is a well known fact? This is my first iPhone and I regret it. I wish that the sales associate had given me the proper information on this prior to. I definitely would've made a different selection.

The newer Android phones are like this if they don't have Advanced Calling enabled. The iPhone 6 requires Advanced Calling too to get voice and data simultaneously on LTE.

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

Yes, ever since Verizon got its first iPhone, the 4 until this past fall when the iPhone 6 came out that supports VoLTE or Advanced Calling, iPhones could not surf and talk on CDMA networks.

OMG!!! This is going to be the longest 2 years of my life. I appreciate the information, I've gained more here than by speaking to reps employed at verizon.

Only the iPhone 6 / 6+ models on VZ allow for voice/data at the same time (when not on Wi-Fi). Good luck. They have a 14-day return policy.
