Default Other tasks while talking on the phone

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Curve 8310.

I've noticed that my girlfriend can text, check her calendar, look up a phone number in her address book, and do a couple other things on her Nokia phone while on a call. I haven't been able to do any of these while on a call and I typically tell my caller that I need to check the number or look at my calendar and "call them back".

Am I missing something here? Can I navigate my phone while on a call?

Thanks.

Hit menu while you are on a call and the window to the world will open...

Enjoy!

Make sure you're on a wired/BT headset and/or the speakerphone is on or you guys won't hear each other!

Or hit Alt-Esc. The phone app is an app just like all the other apps (you can change apps using the same approach).
