    Question Can an EDGE voice call punch-though data transmission?

    Advertisement



    I am about ot make the switch to the pearl from a 8703e on EVDO. Does the pearl on EDGE allow calls to punch though data transmissions?

    example:
    I tether my pearl as a modem, can I recieve a call if say I'm down loading a file? or if I'm surfing the web via my handheld will a call punch though?

    As far as personal experience yes it can. But I have t-mobile pearl so it might be different with another carrier. But email, text, voicemail, and calls all come in.

    I have At&T as my carrier and emails, calls, etc. all come through, same as the other guy said.

    Yup as everyone else said Calls have first priority over everything else.

    It works for receiving calls while you are using data such as tethering, but not the other way around.

    No other data is sent or received while a call is in place.
