Default Tethering and incoming calls

Please Login to Remove!

I use my Pearl as a modem quite a lot. Since the new update, I've noticed that when I get an incoming call, I lose connection with the Desktop Manager and of course lose the tethered connection. Outgoing calls are no probem. T-mo says its a setting that needs to be changed, but I was bounced to RIM and they seem to not have a clue.

Any ideas what is causing this?

Thanks for the help

I've actually been experiencing something like this. I don't normally use tether my phone but I've been doing it a lot lately since I'm not at home. I never get disconnected from DM and it shows that I'm connected to the internet but every time I try to go to a page it times out. I have to pull my battery and restart my phone for it to work again.
