    hey i have a vzw 5s with jailbreak and i know that Verizon didn't offer talk and surf on this handset {which i don't understand why when most androids already do} but i was wondering if anyone knew of any jailbreak tweaks to fix this?? any info would be much appreciated. thank you

    Jailbreak can't enable "talk&surf"... The iPhone isn't built for it.

    Maybe it isn't enabled since you didn't purchase it from Verizon.

    The iPhone is built such that it can only use one of its antennae at a time. Verizon's calls revert to CDMA for voice. The CDMA radio and the data radio can't be active at the same time... Doesn't matter where the iPhone was purchased. It's a physical technological limitation... That will go away when Verizon rolls out VoLTE. It's coming...

    I didn't know that the OP was talking about using them at the same time.

    YES you can, just called my Wife in the other room to test this theory. While talking to her on speaker, I was "surfing" the web. Our iphones (5s) are Verizon. We are NOT jailbroken

    But only because you were on wifi. What doesn't work is cellular data and a call at the same time.

    Yes I was on WiFi...that makes sense. I stand corrected ...THANKS for the info

    Edit; come to think of it I'm always on wifi except in my car. I don't surf while driving and talking.
