Default While in voice call, no internet browsing?

Please Login to Remove!

Before in OS 4.2 I was able to talk on the phone and surf the net, but after upgrading, I can't seem to do it anymore.

Does anyone know why and/or how I can fix this?

Thanks in advance

WOW! But seriously, one of the huge benefits of the upcoming Bold (9000) with 3G technology is that it will finally enable the use of voice and data simultaneously. Sorry to say that there's no way that your 8120 was doing that on Tmo, unless you are really using a Bold and you live in NYC. Haven't you ever experienced that 40 email dump after a long conference call? That's EDGE/GPRS doing its thing....but don't take my word for it, someone more "official" will chime in in any moment now

Sorry, but you're incorrect.
The 8120 has WiFi. You can use WiFi for data during a voice phone call.

Penguin is correct. 8820, 8320, 8120 and going forward the 9000 can all do simultaneous voice and data (over wifi)
