Default Tethering and Incoming Call

Please Login to Remove!

I did a search and nothing seemed to answer this question. . .
When using the 8100 as a modem and there is an incoming call, what happens??
I recently set up my 8100 as a modem (works great!!) and out of curiosity i was wondering what would happen if someone called me.
Does it go directly to VM??
Can I answer the call??
Do I have to d/c it from the USB??

As they say...Curiosity killed the Cat.


P.S. This Forum is FANTASTIC!!! Hopefully one day I can add some input like everyone else. Thanks~~

Danedel is correct. The data will stop and the phone will ring. The nice thing is, the data does not dissconnect. So, once the call is done, you can go right back to surfing the web without having to re-connect.
