I'm a fan of the galaxy series with the s3 i could talk and surf the web on 3g or 4g. With the s4 I could do it only on 4g. So on the s5 does it work at all?

Wink Solution for S5 talk and surf
This is for the S5, but I assume it would work on the galaxy note 4 and all other devices with this issue.

Hi all, I wanted to let you know that there is a very easy work around for this limitation. It is supplied by Google Inc through the Hangouts Dialer app. I'm not sure whether or not you need Hangouts installed to use it, but it allows you to make calls via the data network and still use the network to browse the web, etc. I have tried it several times at home with WiFi off and it works flawlessly so far.

It's sad that Sprint didn't find a way to bypass this limitation on their own, or at least inform customers, but this is an easy and seamless solution by Google.

I put the icon right next to my default phone icon for future use.

Additionally, I can not believe that Sprint is not aware of this work around. I spoke to a few different representatives today, and none were able to offer a solution.

I found this on my own searching the play store. Hope this helps!!

Please note, it is the "Hangouts Dialer" app, not the "Hangouts" app!!
