    I just started playing with PDAnet last night and I must admit that it is the bomb.

    I notice that I get disconnected from the web if a call enters. Is there a way to avoid this by forcing the call to go to voicemail?

    This is an interesting question because my phone calls go straight to VM when I'm using PDAnet. I do not see an option to change it.

    First poster is probably using a 700p; that happens to me also on my 700p.

    It wasn't like that with the 650.

    Whay use PDA net on a 700P? All I use is BT. A call comes in, I answer it, hang up, then I am reconnected with very little delay.

    if you are using a treo 700p then:
    go to prefs
    got to network
    click menu/options/prefs
    check box that says'send calls to voicemail during active power vision data connection'

    done!

    GSM handles duplex channels. It is possible to have simultaneous voice and data connections on a GSM network, however the Treo has a class B GPRS capability, so it cannot exercise both connections at the same time. So when a call is recieved, the data connection is suspended until the call has ended. I don't know CDMA too well, but basically CDMA2000 1x standard can only either use voice or data and must be manually switched. Which is why CDMA users discover that people get forwarded to their voicemail while GSM users' connections are suspended and the call is received.

    To answer the OP's question, no it's not possible. Even if there was third party software to forward calls to voicemail during certain times, your GPRS connection would still be interrupted.

    Well, the answer to OP's question is different for different phones.

    Treo 700p:
    (a) According to the thread posted by Demo, if you force the unit to EVDO only the voice calls will not arrive to your phone and thus there's no more interruptions.
    (b) Verizon: You can dial *7650 to disable CPOP which disables the incoming voice calls from interrupting an active data connection.
    (c) Sprint: if your phone drops back to 1xRTT mode, incoming calls will not interrupt your data. However, if it's in EV-DO mode, you may want to try (a) above; or try post #6 above by JayL.

    Treo 650:
    (a) Verizon: Since Verizon just rolled out CPOP, your active data connection will be interrupted by an incoming call. Thus you'll need to follow the steps in the article (i.e. dial *7650) to disable CPOP if you don't want your incoming calls to interrupt your PDANet connection.
    (b) Sprint: Your data connection will NOT be interrupted when a call comes in.
    (c) GSM (Cingular/T-Mobile): Your data connection will be interrupted when a call comes in. I don't know the steps to disable this.

    All the above suggestions are assuming that your PDANet connection is active and data is actively being transferred. Behavior may wary when you're not actively using the connection but the PDANet connection is still active.
