That would be awesome the service at my house sucks and the Airwave drains the already poor internet speed. The only drawback to living in an older neighborhood is the networks do not upgrade services as often.

Ya know. GS5 comes out next week. About 1/2 of us will upgrade. That phone will have this function anyways. This and the fact GS5 will have triband... = awesome. My only problem is... um.... year old phone shouldn't be old news just yet at $470... but I have an upgrade so.... maybe.

Triband means no WiFi + calls (before the update), no 3G or LTE during calls. No thanks. I'll gladly stick with my GS4. Maybe these things will change if they allow 3G and 4G on the Gs5 while on a call.

And the GS5 does NOT come out next week. Its being formally announced. Like the GS4 that was announced in Feb/March and began to sell in late May/early June. The same will be for the GS4. At the earliest April.

Dude... your a f'n dick. And this is old news that it is coming out in 3 weeks (Available) And yes it is being revealed next week but that is no reason to not get what I obviously meant. Ass

no reason to be a dick dude!

If you didn't mean to come off that way I do apologize but I have seen so many trolls on here and there is no reason for it. Uncalled for drama And yes.... I could just let it go and not say a word, but you shouldn't be rude.

And you don't even have your facts right anyways either. I purchased my GS4 at Sprint May 2nd 2013.
