Default GSM Blackberrys cannot handle data and voice at the same time?

Please Login to Remove!

My understanding and experiance is that GSM Blackberrys cannot send or receive data while on a call. Are there any exceptions?

Thanks

not yet until there is a 3G Blackberry.

Most GSM phones and PDAs are this way. 3G is not yet a standard.

SMS is delivered via the voice protocol, it is not packet data.

SMS isn't data. There are a lot of non-data GSM cell phones that can SMS, for example.
