Is there a way, when im on the phone with my clients, that I can talk and surf the web at the same time(when Im using my headset of course) I know that there was a hack for mobil 5.0 from Micro$haft where you could surf and talk at the same time...anyone know of a way to do this on a 7280?
Thanks

To my knowledge Blackerry devices are not capable of running voice and data traffic at the same time. If this is important to you the best way around it would be to get a phone for the voice service and just keep the data plans on the 7280.

no - you can't do both at the same time

think about it as dial-up - only voice or data at the same time; not both (like high speed)

More accurately, current wireless networks aren't capable of supporting simultaneous voice and data (with the exception of SMS).

You gotta love five emails streaming in as soon as you hang up your phone call. I do wish BB would do data and voice at the same time.

Hmm. I didn't realize CDMA allowed simultaneous voice and data traffic. I thought GSM/GPRS did.
