    No, unfortunately it cannot. There is one cellular radio on the iPhone 5 for Verizon that handles CDMA voice and 3g/4g LTE data. You need separate radios to do both at the same time, which some other Verizon phones have.

    Really? Ouch! That is kind of a deal breaker if you like to be online all the time while on the road? What happens if you're on the internet and you get a call? Will the connection to the internet drop then?

    Yes. Unless you, for some reason, need a constant connection it wouldn't be that big of a deal. It would just reconnect when you get off of the phone.

    You will be able to talk and use the Internet at the same time when Verizon has VoLTE (Voice over LTE), correct?

    So, this might just be temporary. I don't think we know how long it will be until Verizon has VoLTE though.

    yeah - voLTE would just use the one radio so I don't imagine doing both would be a problem. Except for bandwidth...
