I've had my Thunderbolt for over a year now, and I don't really understand why simultaneous voice and data is so important. I have only used the feature to test it. Never practically. How do you use it that it makes it a worthwhile feature? (this is a serious question)

For me on att it was really handy. When Im browsing the web and I get a call I dont have to stop browsing the web. Or sometimes someone will mention something in a conversation and you want to look it up.Its really frustrating when your tethering to a laptop when it happens too. Stuff like that. When I went to verizon I didnt think it was a big deal until I didnt have it any longer. Its been just over a year now and have survived lol but am looking forward to that ability again.

I think its more of a plus for me since I work in the field as knuckle dragging fork lift mechanic, I dont have a pc at my desk, my desk is the work van lol. So you can imagine my phone is used for browsing a lot more than most probably. Once im home its the pc, the phone will get on wifi so its not an issue. Its when im out of the house that its handy

I use it lots on my ATT iPhone. Talking to the wife on the phone and a question comes up, I'll switch it to speaker to look something up. Or she'll send me a pic or something so I'll check my mail quick. I actually find it quiet useful. I wouldn't keep it from me buying a phone, but its nice to have.

A thing to consider is that Verizon's 3G isn't equivalent to that of AT&T. That's the hardest thing to get used to for me since going Verizon. 4G LTE will get me about 8-10 hours with the extended battery for my Nexus. My biggest con for the phone is that it doesn't have 'Mass Storage' capability (b/c of the lack of a MicroSD slot). I thought I would actually miss the expandable storage option, but I don't. Of course, I came from an iPhone 4, so that could be why, but I find myself using a lot less of my phone's storage with Android.

That being said, if you're used to fairly hefty battery life, the iPhone 4S sounds like its for you. It took me about a year to get bored with my iPhone (then bought a Galaxy SII Skyrocket for my last weeks of AT&T) and it would probably take even less time if you weren't as into apps or music.

EDIT: Also, I'd like to say that I believe my phone suffers from the weak signal problem (4G LTE), but this is supposedly fixed in the 4.0.4 OTA update, which is *supposedly* due any day now.

My girlfriend calls sometimes but we don't actually talk... anyway I like to be able to still receive emails and use data. I've also used it before like you've seen in AT&Ts iPhone commercial, someone calls then you look something up real quick. Plus, when someone texts you or calls you it doesn't mess up you're tethering.

I have read a few people say this on xda too so hope its good. I don't expect to go the whole day if im heavy browsing but normal use with camera action would be nice. When i go on vacation my phone has become my camera lol I don't want to have to buy a bigger battery but at least its available.

Made it to the Verizon store finally and played with the Rezound. Found the Speedtest app and got 40mb/s! I don't know if thats some scheme but thats insane. Awesome screen too as well as that double data offer.
