    In terms of iPhone, they are correct. No simultaneous voice and data if wifi isn't used. All other Verizon LTE phones do support it.

    I do NOT need WiFi access to do simultaneous voice and data with my Sprint phone. I have been quite able to do both simultaneously since I got the thing in May.

    Correct. You have Android, they have the hardware to support simultaneous voice and data. The iPhone 5 does not, it's missing one antenna.

    I was responding to someone asking about an iPhone. My statement is 100% correct.

    Then perhaps you should be more grammatically careful. :p

    My grammar was just fine as well.

    Two things I learned a long time ago, never disagree with a dark lord of the Sith, or a teacher :)

    Winters,...
    ??

    His grammar was fine; 'twas you who misread his post! So, apology for the dust up when you were wrong, perhaps? Yes?

    Put your glasses on. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my post. You either misread my post or didn't bother reading what I quoted.

    End of discussion...

    Two hardware issues so far with my wife's phone.

    First was a "No Sim Card" message. Many others have complained about it on the Apple message boards. ATT replaced the Sim card and it is working fine now.

    Now the phone is intermittently not charging, despite all connectors being seated. I guess it will be a trip to the Apple store now and hopefully they have replacement phones in stock.

    This is an iPhone 5/iOS 6 thread... so until some other manufacturer makes an iPhone OR a phone that runs iOS 6, it should be assumed any statements about what one can or cannot do with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon relates to iPhone 5 and iOS 6...

    So, please no more attacking each other instead of the topic.

    Thank you!

    I went into my router's setup menu and couldn't find anything that might be the problem and gave up for the day. I was playing with my iPAD later that night and Location Services is now working... :rolleyes:

    Maybe Apple maps had your house in space as location services are not supposed to work outside of the atmosphere.

    That would be new...

    I still get a kick out of how entering my address in Google Maps has my home two miles North of where I am, but Apple Maps has my home 4-5 miles South of where I am.

    Space wouldn't surprise me... :)

    Anyone else getting hit with the No SIM Card issue? Had it pop up yesterday once and a reboot of the phone fixed it. Today, it popped up with an Invalid SIM message. A reboot gave me a SIM Failure message. A second reboot had the phone working again. I think I might need to make a trip to a VZW store.
