Can I receive call while surfing the web?
I am currently an iphone user, and thinking about switching to EVO 4G. But I know CDMA cannot do data / voice at the same time.... which i THINK i can deal with that..
but I need to know if I can at least receive phone calls while I am using the data connection, or will it usually just go to voice mail when people call at the time i am downloading things?... this would be a deal breaker
please let me know thanks

I'm pretty sure you can.
I just called my Sprint Palm 755p while browsing the web and it showed the call from my work phone that I'd just placed to see if it could indeed get calls while surfing. When the call ended, it went right back to the web page I'd been on.

It's one of the many things that I hate about the Palm Crapre that I can't talk and surf at the same time because of the 3g limitations.

1. You're in a 4G area (check here: http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...ted-5-5-a.html )
2. You're in a wifi area

What I HATE about CDMA is when you get a call while on a call, there's no way to hang up the 2nd call, meaning both are running until you hit the End All Calls button.

Also, that thing about not being able to end one of the calls sounds like a phone limitation, not a network one.</awesome>

I think it is funny those commercials that say "I can call and surf at the same time!" Then makes it look like the page appears right away while he is on the call. I have friends with AT&T and several phones, including the iPhone. Yeh, then can surf when on a call, but it is like they are using a 9600baud modem. The internet connection is almost not even there. Even an IM program takes a minute or more to send a line of text.
Then I started asking around to see if anyone ever needed to be on the internet while on their phones at the same time. 100% of the people asked (about 20, and all tech support geeks) said no.
I used WiFi once on my Touch Pro 2 while on a call just to see if it can be done and if it would be of any use. Yes, it can be done. The Touch Pro 2 (Sprint) does not seem to care I was on a call. (Slightly different hardware then other carriers TP2's by the way). But at the same time, I really had no need to be on the internet while talking to someone. The person you are talking to has to be way boring for you to surf while talking to them.
