Can I talk on my iPhone and browse the Internet at the same time?

Can I talk on my iPhone and browse the Internet at the same time?

UPDATE: Yes, recent model iPhones can absolutely use LTE data while on a voice call. The original answer below refers to the first generation iPhone, released in 2007:

Unfortunately, no. The iPhone uses the EDGE network for data communications. EDGE cannot be used at the same time as a voice call is active as these two types of communications utilize the same channel.

3G capable phones can transmit data and voice simultaneously without interfering with each other.

Not true. I have an Iphone 5 with LTE and I still cannot surf the internet or use network-connected apps while on the phone. It seems like a carrier-specific limitation.
