Data during phone calls

Recommended Posts

I was on hold with the post office for 3 hours the other day and went to go on facebook and realized that I don't have data during calls. I could have swore that my s7 used to have it but it could be possible I was remembering my s5. So is it possible to do or did the s7 ever have it or am I think of my old s5?

I might be wrong, but I think the switch to LTE data vs 3G might be the cause of no data during a call.  My area just got LTE in the last couple of years, and I was able to use both before that.

S5 has separate LTE and CDMA antennas allowing lte data while on calls. The S7 has a combined antenna so without volte it drops Data to make calls.

If you are connected to WiFi I thought you could still be on a call and use the web. But the thing is that you must be on WiFi.

You should be able to connect to Wifi mid-call in the future so you can use the web too.
