    is it the case that if you are using any wireless web app and someone phones in, it will send them directly to voicemail and the phone will not ring?

    if this is the case, that is horrible.

    thanks.

    It has been covered in a lot of other threads, but here it is again.

    While the phone is transmitting data, the phone will be busy. If you stay idle for a second or so, without transmitting data, it goes back to phone mode.

    It isn't quite like you home phone, where your phone is busy all the time while you are connected through a modem to the internet. It creates and tears down the circuit while you are requesting data.

    i have been in the middle of reading a web page when the phone rings. And I have missed calls because Treomail is in the middle of checking for new mail messages.

    To do what you want to do, you need a phone that is multiplexing voice and data over one IP connection or you need a phone with two transceivers and you will pay for two accounts. These are still fiction unless you live in Korea or Japan. On current networks, you do one or the other: voice or data. It's nothing to do with the Treo per se.

    The only fun data/voice thing you can do today is 2-way SMS messaging while on a call on a GSM network. This does not work on Sprints CDMA network though and it makes for very distracted voice conversations.

    Except for cost issues, the Treo 270 is a better choice if you can't afford to miss voice calls.

    Keep in mind that the cost issues are huge and the data is slower.
