How to Use Cellular Internet While Talking


The advent of the smart phone allows mobile phones to surf the Web. Talking and surfing the Web was featured by AT&T that was not available with Verizon. This has now changed and soon the two largest cellphone providers will be offering this feature to their users. While talking and surfing was available if the phone was connected to a Wi-Fi network, it is not as convenient as having that ability with no additional connection requirements. Talking on the phone and surfing the Web still requires a decent cellular signal and some additional equipment to multitask easily and comfortably.

Things You'll Need

  • Headphones
  • Smart phone
  • Wireless service provider (with data plan)
  • Select a location where there is limited noise and where the phone display can be viewed with limited glare. If you are driving, pull over before using the Internet or talking.

  • Have a headset (either wired or wireless) and connect it to the phone. This device will allow the phone to be held away from your ear so the display can be viewed while having a conversation.

  • Dial the number of the person you would like to call. Make sure the call is able to be heard over the headset that you chose to have the conversation over. A wireless device that has a Bluetooth connection is secure and removes the restrictions that wires can cause.

  • Exit the phone dialer once your call is connected and your conversation is under way.

  • Launch the browser to your phone or application that allows the user to browse the Web. Once the data connection is up and running the user will be simultaneously surfing the web and talking on the phone over the smart phone.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure while talking and surfing the Web you are not driving. Distracted driving is dangerous, and operating a cellphone and a motor vehicle while on the phone is illegal in several cities and states.
