I got an iPhone5 about a month ago. I noticed that when I'm talking on the phone, my data access disappears which disallow me to access the internet. This happens especially if I'm on the LTE network. Sequence of network status is:
1. before making the phone call: LTE
2. call starts: 3G
3. time elapse during the call this could be between 10 seconds to 4 minutes: <blank> ==> no internet access
4. call ends: 3E
5. couple of minutes later: 3G/LTE
This does not always happen if I start the call with 3G network; but unfortunately it does happen sometimes.
I've reported this to Rogers Tech Support. Tried a slew of options including receiving a new phone. They're still working on it... but I've read this is a problem in the US... only AT&T could support the ability to have data access while using the phone function... but I did find a post of a user having problems when on LTE network.
I'm curious to see if anyone had encountered this problem.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
LTE is only for data, its not for voice. So when you are on LTE & trying to call or on a call, LTE will come off & go on 3G ( on iPhone's. 4G on other phones). This is because like i said LTE is ONLY data, it does not support voice.
Actually i can use the phone going on the internet while on the phone. I can do this on my iPhone 5. S3 & BlackBerry Z10. Rogers does support it. It could be something wrong with the signal or the service you are on.
Thanks Meowmix... yes, I recognize that LTE is data... my experience is that I get NO data if I'm on the phone... this happens to me in multiple locations...
Hmm that seems to be a problem either with the phone pr the plan you are on. It should let you access the internet / get data.

Go into settings -> general -> reset ->network reset.
and like MeowMix mentioned "Enable LTE: Voice & Data" should be enabled.
