Is there a way to search for a number in Google while keeping the ongoing call intact? I have noticed that the internet connection is lost when a call is in progress.

    I believe this depends on your provider. For example: Verizon's CDMA network does not allow you to do Data + Call; however AT&T's GSM network will. – Dylan Yaga Jul 23 '12 at 17:33

    I think this is a duplicate but I can't find it. @Dylan, feel free to post that as the answer. – Matthew Read Jul 23 '12 at 17:48
  • Another potentially important distinction is that phones on CDMA carriers with other networking capabilities (WiMAX and LTE) will support simultaneous voice and data since they're essentially operating on two separate chips, so this can also be dependent on your device. – eldarerathis Jul 23 '12 at 17:50

I believe this depends on your provider.

And as eldarerathis points out:

Another potentially important distinction is that phones on CDMA carriers with other networking capabilities (WiMAX and LTE) will support simultaneous voice and data since they're essentially operating on two separate chips, so this can also be dependent on your device.

So this ends up being device, and carrier dependent.

  • To append to this answer, wifi still works when you're in a call. – MowDownJoe Jul 24 '12 at 1:43
