you can't do voice and data simultaneously, but you can get sms since it travels on the voice channel. so if you're getting bbm, mms and email on your device you're on some super network. like GSM or LTE or something.
are you with VZW or are you unlocked?
saw that after i submitted post, nvm.

You were having problems with BBM because RIM had a data outage all over North East American today.
I used to get that, but for some reason in the past month or so, it has stopped.

Fyi: caps = network coverage and RIM coverage. No caps = just network coverage.
1x = voice network, no RIM services.
1X = voice network with RIM services available, just slow.
1xev = 3G network, no RIM services.
1XEV = 3G network, RIM services available.
If you don't have caps on your coverage indicator non RIM apps will work. Opera and 3rd party I.M. As examples.
