    Cr@p!
    I wish there was a similar setting for incoming emails! I looked through most of the items and SMS was the only one I found with that option.

    C'mon RIM, some of us never use SMS/MMS...

    Email is data. You can't receive data when on the phone.

    I guess not.
    Question is "why not?"

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~because your phone is edge and the edge network is not capable of of voice and data at the same time. The 3g network is capable of voice and data simultaneously. But rim has yet to put out a 3g blackberry.

    Thank you for the directions btw on the SMS alert. Ill have to try that.

    curious, are there currently any 3g providers in the US that offer phones that allow phone/data simultaneously? I had verizon up until january. I had a LG VX9800 (The V) and whenever I tried to send MMS (or go on WAP browser) while on the phone it was unable to do it. phone limitations, VZ's limitations, or both?

    I know you're with Cingular so you might not know, but worth asking. *crosses fingers*

    Re: text message alert while on phone call

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~my BB is Cingular. I don't know if that makes a diff but I don't see the active SMS menu after I hit advanced in options. Am I missing something here?

    Let me clarify

    Profiles
    Select Advanced...
    Select The "Active" Profile (Loud, quite, Normail, etc.)
    Scroll down to SMS text and select.
    Then the options should be at the very bottom.

    there's my old LG VX9800 and it did have 3G (which is why it had 1x reception bar and an evdo one), but then why wasn't I able to send MMS while I was on the phone? hmm..

    -edit-

    thanks for the link! comeon t-mobile *2007*

    Re: text message alert while on phone call

    I have mine set to alert me during a call, but the beep DURING the call is so faint. I needs to be louder. Anyone know how to change that?
