Default blackberry curve 8330 vs blackberry bold 9700 question

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys...im relatively new to blackberyr but i have a quick question im hoping can get answered by the amazing community on here!

i have a blackberry 8330 curve, my friend has a blackberry 9700(i believe its the bold)...i was just wondering why it was possible for her to keep receiving bbm messages, msn messages...etc while she was on a phone convo and my phone is not capable of doing that! is there a reason? i find it is a good advantage to be able to have that and id like to know if theres anything i could do to my phone to make it that way!

also...are there any other phones which can receive messages while on phone convos? ive asked a storm2 owner and his cant either!

your input would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance

The 9700 is a GSM 3G device which has simultaneous voice and data capability. The 8330 is a CDMA device and CDMA does not have simultaneous voice and data capability.

Verizon, Sprint, Telus = CDMA
AT&T, T-Mobile, Rogers = GSM

Almost all of Europe uses the GSM standard as well.
