    Can a Treo using Sprint Power Vision do voice and data simultaneously like GSM can?

    No, just text

    if by gsm you mean UTMS then no..edge doesn't do this...

    Power Vision will ring if you are using data and will stop data while on the phone then resume data when you hang up..Unlike edge which rings busy while using data...

    I have had numerous calls 'come thru' while watching Sprint TV. :-)

    All variants of GSM will ring while data is being transferred. 1xRTT does not. I have no idea about EVDO.

    With EVDO, calls will come through while you're on data, but when you're on a call, your data stops. You can't be on data (i.e. watching Sprint TV) and be talking on the phone at the same time.

    That's what I meant...I've had numerous calls come thru while I was watching Sprint TV.

    If you want data while on a voice call, then currently you need UTMS. If you just want calls to come through when you have an active data connection (pauses data until call is over) then you need any flavor of GSM data offerings, EVDO or any Verizon data connection. My understanding is that Verizon upgraded something on their systems/towers to allow a call to come through while on 1xRTT, but Sprint will send the call to voicemail.

    GPRS/EDGE allows calls to go through.

    EVDO does as well, 1xrtt generally won't.

    Actually EDGE does do this. (at least on every network I've ever used.)

    I don't have evdo or any high speed data but on my Sprint Treo 650 calls still come through when I am surfing the net Wish that send to voicemail would work for me, hate to be interupted while reading up on the news.

    Calls will come through when the browser is open with a dormant data connection but if you are actively passing traffic than the call will go to voicemail everytime.
