I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and i can't surf the net while I'm on a call. ...why is that? ...I've never had this issue before with other phones.
the Note 4 is a spark capable tri band device so it now only has one antenna compared to the non tri band devices having 2..so before with the older phones could pull this off while connected to LTE since one antenna took care of the LTE connection while the other took care of Voice..for the tri band devices...and i mean ALL the tri band devices in order to do this Sprint must deploy VoLTE (voice over LTE)..which rumor is its already being tested...possibly tested..we will never know until they start lighting it up and or advertise that its on its way.
So this means that i can't surf while I'm on the phone? ...does this mean that they are working on fixing the problem?...it's very inconvenient
rumor is they already testing VoLTE at a location but we all know how those rumors work. and correct..since the tri band devices only have one antenna they must (for the time being) chose the priority..in this case the call would be the priority. for what its worth though even Verizons new line couldnt do this..theyre currently deploying this ability as we speak..they started roughly 6+ months ago..so theyre no where near completed.
no worries..you can still do this while connected to wifi but for most this isnt much help while out and about. there are also apps you can use like hangouts or hangouts dialer BUT those use a different number so theyre not attached to your phones actual number if im remembering right..and only work for the outgoing calls.
correct. there are still separate antennas for both WIFI as well as bluetooth. additionally your phone should also have wifi calling on it. might need to activate it. so if youre home seems to be a black hole when it comes to reception you can set it up to use wifi calling while there and whalla..calls incoming and outgoing are back up and running using your home wifi. slight limitations when it comes to other wifi connections though..
*tips hat* shucks..twerent nothin
