"Shammo said: "Well, I think that video calling is going to become more significant in the future. I think that when we release our VoLTE technology -- probably in '13 -- when we do voice over LTE through IP, there will be many, many more options for that going out. But I do think video calling will start to proliferate into the future."
David Barden, a Bank of America-Merrill Lynch analyst, followed up with: "You don't have any plans to charge a different charge for people who want to use that product?"
Shammo: "I won't get into our marketing plans at this point, but we will have the capability probably in '13 to offer that. Once we go to VoLTE, we will have that capability.""

"During an interview with Network World today, Verizon Vice President of Network Hans Leutenegger said that the carrier won't be deploying any voice over LTE (VoLTE) services on its network until late next year at the very earliest. The reason for this, he said, is that Verizon is already largely satisfied with its current voice network and doesn't see the need to push both handset manufacturers and its own customers to use a new technology just yet."
Which means 2014 more then likely.

The same can be said about simultaneous voice/data on Verizon. Verizon LTE phones have been able to do simultaneous voice and data for a long time now; it's become standard protocol. Thus, I think that Apple, at the very least, deserves criticism for not including it. The absence of the feature may or may not be a deal breaker, but its inclusion would have been very nice indeed.

Let's see. At&t = poor coverage, poor call quality, small LTE foot print, no customer service, & no ota FaceTime.
Also in order for them to do simo voice and data on at&t, it has to drop back to the old networks and I've read that that hand off sucks. So you have fund doing simo on AT&T while your calls drop and your data gets stuck.
I'm pissed off that iPhone 5 on Verizon won't be doing simo, but that's Apple's fault not Verizon's. Apple decided to save the extra dollar per phone and screwed us. So that's why I may end up returning my iPhone 5 & going with Galaxy S 3.

argument. It really only matters if VZW or ATT is better where you live/work/play.
In my case, both VZW and ATT have excellent coverage... and I am extremely happy with my AT&T coverage. When I visited the Bay area last year, AT&T was crap... and in some locations when I go back home to Indy, I hear complaints about VZW...
Just like real estate, this discussion comes down to location, location, location.

I agree with the above posts. Verizon and ATT are great around my area but att has lte here and i get great data speeds. Now its online 10 on the down at my house but in a neighboring town i get up to 30 on the down. My friend who is on verizon doesnt get this type of speed here. It just depends on the area. Around here its ATT.

I think it should have been included with Verizon iP5, this disappoints me.
For me, picking between dropped calls and poor sound quality (provided by ATT in my area, So Cal) and the ability to do data (on rare occasion when I don't have wifi, or my ipad handy) I still choose Verizon.
But everyone needs to pick their own poison, everyone's rate plans are about the same anymore. We all have a choice. Learned long ago on this forum, you like what you like, and everyone's experience is different.

fmflex, the problem with this is that when you miss a turn, your navigation app will not be able to re-route you since you do not have data, and that's where you will run into an issue if you are on the phone when you miss that turn.

I'm very surprised since so many other phones have been doing thus since 3G came out a few years ago.
I use it all the time and have come to rely on it so I can talk while waiting for important emails, forward information to the person I'm speaking with before I forget, etc
