    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.

    Patches is correct. The CDMA channel will carry nothing but SMS services while on a call (and it will beep at you to let you know). Once you hang up, all data reliant services (BBM, e-mail, etc) will update. Can't wait for LTE to light up on VZW and the 4G "storm" whatever that might be so that we can have simultaneous data/voice. Of course... There are the CDMA technology advantages in other areas...

    Fyi: caps = network coverage and RIM coverage. No caps = just network coverage.

    For example:
    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.
