    You won't have any problem calling but receiving could be depending if you're on an EVDO coverage or 1X 'cause 1X can't receive call and data at the same time

    I'm on Sprint and receive calls when tethered as a modem. It seems that all the BB functions are available when tethered. The modem just runs in the background.

    While tethered and using the connection? It's not technically possible AFAIK.

    With Sprint you are not guaranteed to receive phone calls while in all network modes, but it is very possible.

    Re: Tethered modem and phone calls

    Yeah I have noticed that.. Im on Sprint when I am tethered I don't get calls sometimes but then I will sometimes. Just so you know though every time I have been tethered my emails or msgs from blackberry messenger are on hold till I disconnect from my laptop... Not sure if anyone else has the same problem

    I did notice that the emails are held until I'm untethered.
