I looking a Cingular and Sprint. Can you use Voice and Data at the same time with both CDMA and GSM.

It uses the same radio so if you are on a call, data is stopped until the call ends. You can compose email, look at calendar or contact info, but not send or receive data with either technology.

Definitely be sure to check out real world coverage (don't rely on coverage maps) during the trial period for whichever carrier you end up selecting.
