iPhone 5 simultaneous voice and LTE data on GSM only – for now?

Those of you pumped up about the iPhone 5 bringing in architecture that allows simultaneous voice and data on a single radio, take heed: it's been confirmed that this ability only works on GSM-based LTE (and 3G) networks. If you're planning on working with a network that uses CDMA for voice and LTE for data, you'll be out of luck - they'll both work, just not at the same time. The key here may be in the official Apple statement (as seen below) which includes a "not yet" which may keep some doors open.

Voyager Mobile finally open for business

If you’re willing to be a little flexible with your choice of smartphone, you can save a pretty penny by subscribing to an MVNO instead of one of the main four carriers in the US. MVNOs piggyback on their networks but typically offer better deals.

NTelos gets iPhone before T-Mobile due to 2G

Several news outlets today have been hypothesizing why it was first C Spire, then NTelos to get the iPhone before larger groups T-Mobile, Cricket, and MetroPCS - here's why: connectivity. One of the biggest reasons Apple has not yet worked with T-Mobile for the iPhone is that they'd have to create a whole new configuration for the iPhone - net architecture inside to adopt their HSPA+ wireless frequencies. AT&T had the original iPhone on lock for quite a while before Verizon got in on the party, and now that the iPhone love is beginning to spread, it'll be the carriers with the same connection bands that the top three carriers have that Apple will be going with first.

Android CDMA support changed slightly, Nexus may stopper updates

Today there's been a bit of a scare out there in the Android world as Google changed its official support pages to stop support for some CDMA features on devices. This seemed to include the Verizon Galaxy Nexus at first along with all CDMA devices in all ways.

The Verizon Galaxy Nexus along with all other Galaxy Nexus devices in the future will continue to get official firmware updates unless Google deems them unworkable.
