    That is strange about data services getting killed while on a phone call. My 8700 will recieve but not send (outgoing data services are killed while on a call on GSM). I can reply and as soon as I get off the call the phone will send it. Now on CDMA, until they convert over to VOIP, yes Data is dead while a call is in progress.

    I was gonna say that I used to be able to receive email on my 7100's while on a phone call and I remember being able to go back to the homescreen while on a phone call.

    yeah I get SMS while I'm on the phone.. but as soon as I hang up I see a few emails and BB messages all come flooding in from while I was on that call. They definately aren't coming in for me like others were lucky enough to have.

    I use my BB for data only because I like the great organizational features of the BB, but I also need the walkie talkie feature of a Nextel phone. If there was a BB with Nextel PTT I would be happy and consolidate my two phones.

    I just like data options better than phone options. I would rather email you than call you. And no offense to you, its just I spent too much time being on the phone for my job I try to avoid it.

    Re: So many don't use their BB as their phone, I don't get it

    You guys are all missing the reason why so many people have a blackberry and a cell phone -- it's because their company pays for data, but not voice, and doesn't offer any type of split-billing program or the option to get reimbursed for the data plan.

    I was stuck with this set up for about 2 years and I hated carrying two devices.
