    BBM and EMAIL while on call?

    Ok, I have never noticed this before but I have been running the new .191 OS and Using my jawbone bluetooth headset. Now when I am on a call I do not get emails or BBM. Now as soon as I hang up they are delivered. Is this something that I just have not noticed before or is this an OS issue? Thanks in advance for help.

    On CDMA you can't do voice and data simultaneously. So you just never noticed it before. Only on GSM 3G you can BBM, email, browser while on a voice call.

    Perfect. Like I said this is the first time I have ever used a bluetooth device so normally I am not sending and receiving while on a call. Thank you very much for the help. Sorry to sound like such a nOOb!

    Glad I can help. And it was a good question to ask, most people don't really know that CDMA doesn't allow for that.

    Just to clarify here you can do this if you're on GSM either 2G or 3G

    I definitely noticed that when I went from AT&T to VZW last winter... and noticed again when I went back to AT&T. A very nice feature

    If you can do it on 2G, how come it always says a voice call is in progress and won't the browser. Same with BBM messages.
