I have preordered an iphone 5. This will be my first cell phone ever. I have a question about the iphone / Rogers abilities.
Can you be making a phone call, and use the data feature at the same time? Example, can I call my wife and be looking at a website or map directions while I talk with her?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes you are able to use the internet while you are on a phone call. Its called multitasking.
Once you are on a call, put the phone on speaker phone & press the home button on the iPhone. Then you are able use the internet if you wish. It will work at the fullest its supposed to.No issues at all. I have done this many times before.
I was wondering the same thing (I'm currently 1780 on a wait list for an iPhone 5). I know that with my iPhone 4 on Rogers I can do both simultaneously, but I have been reading that this is only possible with the iPhone 5 by having the voice call go to CDMA (Which I don't know if Rogers has or supports) and having the LTE antenna do the data.
I would love to have an official word on this as I do use that feature often and I will be upset if I cannot do it with the iPhone 5.
I also read somewhere that both can drop to 3g and do it that way? I'm not sure if Rogers can do this or what.
Any detailed clarification would be very helpful.
Many thanks in advance!
Let me try to explain this so no one gets confused & knows what it going on.
Alright i have owned the S2 LTE, HTC Raider LTE, S3 LTE & as well the S2 HD LTE. When you try to make a phone call & you are on LTE, LTE will drop & it will use either 4G ( HSPA+) or 3G. This is a issue with LTE not the phone. You are still able to use the internet but it wont be on LTE until you get off the phone. It will be om 3G / 4G ( HSPA+)
Rogers only supports GSM / EDGE / 3G / HSPA+ & LTE. CDMA is with Bell & Telus. They use that. This may be true but i just called Rogers & spoke to 3 different tech support agents & 2 managers. They all told me that they are supporting it & it will work with no issues.
