Sprint Talk and Data
« on: May 11, 2019, 11:09:13 PM »
I always thought that my S7 was the reason that I could not get talk and date.  Turns out its Sprint.  Sprint tells me that the newer phones, including the new Pixel3a can do that.  Before I upgrade, can anyone confirm?  Thanks.

I thought that was only with 3G that CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon couldn't do voice and data simultaneously. But with the advent of 4G LTE they could do both simultaneously.

On my phone (s8+ on sprint) there is an option for VoLTE which allows data and talk at the same time.
Settings - connections - voice networks

Worked on my s8 last year after I messed with some system settings but it didn't prioritize the voice traffic so it was super hard to hear people on the phone without a great LTE connection
