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.

It's CDMA (sprint, verizon)vs GSM (ATT, TMobile) CDMA doesn't have the ability while GSM does. If you are on WIFI then of course it doesn't matter....I haven't heard of 4G fixing this issue, but I could be wrong.

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...
