    voice and data at same time

    Advertisement



    i used to have a sidekick 3 and one of my biggest compaints with the device was while using the web browser, all calls would go straight to voicemail. also after i made a call, the sk3 would have to reconnect to the network (waiting for the G) and i would not be able to make calls while it was doing that.

    does this happen with the blackberry as well?

    never. when browsing the web, if a call is incoming it goes straight to the answer screen. you can ignore the call and continue browsing, if you want.

    it is important to note that you cannot receive emails or browse the web while using the phone. the device cannot receive both types of wireless signal at the same time.

    But you can use the pda functions, like looking up another phone number in the address book or information stored in the password keeper.

    Yeah I had to do that last night... on the phone and looked up something in my address book.

    What program were you trying to connect back onto the network with?

    The reason I am asking, is I know that Ramble IM will log off every time a phone a call comes in or is placed, however, IM+ will stay connected if a call comes in, a call is made, or even if you go out of a service area for a while and then pop back into service.

    I've heard that with the UMTS products (i.e. 8707) you can send and receive emails even when you're on a phone call. Apparently, that's one of the advantages of going to 3G technologies. Not sure if the same thing applies to EV-DO.

    That is correct.

    Email and data will not work while on a phone call, but SMS does work, receive and send.

    IM+ is likely just auto-reconnecting after a phone call / service disruption.
