Data & Phone at the same time?
I swear on my Palm Pre I could take a call put it on speaker phone and browse the web or check email......The shift tells me I cannot access the web when on a call. Is this the case for everyone else??????
Isn't that a Sprint function and not a Phone Specific thing?

The palm pre phone does not have that capability of talking while browsing the web simultaneously.
I believe it's a limitation for some, or all CDMA phones while using 3g connection.
I surf the web while chatting on my EVO, however, this can only be done using 4g or wifi connection.

GSM w/ GPRS, EDGE: voice blocks data
+ HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA or wi-fi: simultaneous voice and data
CDMA w/ 1xRTT: data blocks inbound voice / outbound voice blocks data
+ EvDO: inbound voice interrupts data / outbound voice blocks data
+ WiMAX-4G or wi-fi: simultaneous voice and data
If you don't normally keep 4G on, you can fire it up during a call and get online in under a minute. Of course, this assumes you have 4G signal where you are...
