    Ok so I just switched from a windows phone to a iPhone and in doing that I switched carriers (not sure if that matters) but can you not talk on the phone while surfing the web on the 6plus?

    The phone part is the feature that I rarely use, so I cannot confirm it. But I remember Verizon Wireless bragged about being able to surf the net while talking on the phone. I don't know which carrier you have though.

    they bragged about it bc they couldn't be able to do it when they first had the iphone.

    You would need to ask a person with sprint.

    I have Verizon, and it's that way with them. There's not much Verizon can do about it. If Apple doesn't include the right antenna in the iPhones, Verizon gets left out. I never use talk n surf except at home on wifi anyway.

    All iPhones are capable of doing both at the same time...just not when you're using Sprint unfortunately.

    Prior to the 6's, this was incapable on CDMA because there was only one antenna. They did that to compensate for extra battery usage in CDMA. The 6's iPhones are now capable of voice and data. But you have to turn it on. And I believe every time you switch to a new phone, you have to do this manually. I've noticed that it doesn't store in your restore when you switch phones since I've switched between 4 iPhones 6/6+'s already. Here's how to set:

    Go to: Settings --> Cellular --> Enable LTE --> Voice&Data

    Done!

    The carrier must also have their VoLTE up and active too (voice over LTE) so when you're on a CDMA carrier but their LTE is GSM like the rest of us you can talk and surf at the same time

    From what I understand only gsm carriers are allowed to have this feature. So Verizon and sprint cannot. Please correct me if I'm wrong
