my response was to Lindseys but still works for you lol. if you still have your old phone then you can switch back without any issues. if you no longer have the S3 and are planning on snagging another one just make sure its the original S3 and not the tri band spark capable version or youre right back to square one again.

And thank you for correcting me.  You are correct.  It was a hardware change made to "break this"

which will be "fixed" once they complete out the VoLTE..until then yall are stuck with either using Hangouts to make your data calls or calls/surfing while on wifi.

Re: on the galaxy s5 you can't be on the phone and the surf the web at the same time

the newer verizon phones must be on Edge in order to do voice and surf now..so you might want to do a bit of digging before jumping in head first. they started their deployment roughly a year ago and are not completed as of yet.

[third party links removed]

and on and on and on....you might as well just turn in your phones and move on. you wont get any answers in here until they start lighting it up. until then you will hear nothing unless its from a 3rd party site
