That brings up an interesting question: If you are transmitting voice data over 3G/4G, can't you also go on the web if you've got a good Wi-Fi signal? Can ICS do both at the same time?

Can ICS do both at the same time? Data will go over WiFi and you can do voice at the same time from what I recall.It's not a limitation of the OS... it's a limitation of the carrier technology... iPhones on AT&T can do both voice/data, iPhones on VZW and Sprint cannot.For instance, if I data tether on AT&T, I can receive a voice call and not interrupt my browsing on my notebook... but if I tether on my Sprint phone, when a call comes in, it takes precedence and the data is "paused" on my notebook until the call is over.
Verizon announced the HTC Thunderbolt back in January as their 1st 4G phone to offer SVDO service (simultaneous voice+data over CDMA). Since then HTC came out with the Rezound as Big Red's second phone to offer this feature when you are in a 3g EVDO network.I thought that all other verizon 4g phones offer simultaneous voice+data when on a 4g network--data goes over 4g and voice going over the 3g/1x/CDMA network. Outside of the 4g network you get no simultaneous voice+data unless on wifi or if you have the above phones. Is that not the case?Eventually Verizon plans on implementing Voice over Data via 4G (Voice over LTE) alone but they are working out the kinks.
