    Receiving e-mail and text while on phone

    Advertisement



    Is there a setting I need to check to get my e-mails and sms/text messages while on a call? For some reason I don't get anything until I end a call and I am on a 5 hour call and want to check e-mails.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, you cannot send or receive e-mails/texts while on a call. Voice and data cannot occur at the same time on the Edge network. Once you upgrade to the Bold and have 3G, you'll be able to do this!

    I actually just changed to Sprint 8330. Can I do this with Sprint?

    That I don't know, sorry.

    You can test it, though. When you're on a call, press the BB menu button and the navigate around to your SMS or e-mail and see if you can do it.

    Just did that!! Sorry about that.

    I am only interested in receiving e-mails and texts. I don't need to send anything.

    Thanks for the profile update!

    Well, if you're not getting anything while on a call, then that pretty much answers your question.

    I wasn't sure if there was a setting that you could enable to allow this. I used to have a Palm Treo and I know it was an option with that, so just curious if this does that.

    With the 8330, you can compose or reply to emails while talking, but they will not send and you will not receive until you end the call. Texting may work though....never tried it......

    Thanks for the clarification, azstar. I meant to mention that, but brokenbricks was more interested in being able to RECEIVE these communications while on a phone call than in sending anything.

    I mentioned that you will not RECEIVE until the call is ended also

    You should all be aware that this is (predominantly) a carrier network setting. (in GSM networks anyways).

    Believe it or not, the BB supported this since the 8700.

    I have an 8830 through Sprint and yes you can send/receive SMS while on a call but not email.
    Hope this helps. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
