Not sure on the Sprint device but there should be a short tone(s) notifying you of another call if you have call waiting.

Yes, you should get a tone or something when another call comes in. Make sure you're not using the OFF profile at the time.

You also won't be able to receive any data (text or email) while on a phone call.

Yes, sms will send and receive while on a call. However, email/data will not.

As long as your phone is not on silent you should get a beep when you get a SMS. I do and it is quite annoying.

Have you checked your profile settings? If I edit the profiles on my Pearl there is an option at the end called 'Notify me during calls'. That setting just might have something to do with it ;)

I was just posting a new thread about setting different tones before I wandered into this thread. It could be a default setting on the new pearls that you could easily change. If you read the thread I started, in the directions I give, you will also find in option for notifications while in a call. As far as I can tell it is set to "no" by default. Pretty much what riggers1 is saying above just more elaborate. Hope this helps.

Setting tones for txt, email, IM, etc. For newbs
