    I'm getting my treo 700wx on Monday, and have a question -

    If I am actively surfing the web, and someone is trying to call me, will I get their phone call, or will it go to my voicemail?

    I hope that it interrupts whatever I'm doing and shows someone is calling me.

    But when I was looking on a website for a program "mobitv" i believe actually, it said something like, while watching mobitv, you wont receive any of your calls, they'll just go to your VM.

    Is this true with all data applications?

    I don't want to be afraid to use the web, and miss a phone call.

    The phone SHOULD pause the connection and accept the call. There are times though, where the phone is looking for service (starting a connection or changig towers) where the phone call will not go through. But honestly, one of those two things needs to be occuring, so the chances are small and it would have to be a matter of timing. So usually, you will get your call and you won't find it to be a problem.

    That is excellent to hear. Thank you.

    I -cannot- miss phone calls at times, and it would be a real bummer to find out that using my data connection will stop incoming calls.

    Now I'm really excited. Super!

    To add to this, if you are in an EVDO area, the data will pause and allow the call to come through. If you are in a 1x area and actively transmitting data the call will go to vmail.

    How do I know if I'm using evdo or 1x?

    I would even go so far as to turn off 1x, I'd rather stop data at times, to be assured I won't be missing calls.

    Calls definitely take priority over my data, whether I like it or not..

    I have yet to have a call come thru while in an active EVDO session. I've missed countless calls due to my PUSH email.

    With CPOP, you should receive calls in both EVDO and 1x areas. Search Verizon's web site if you want more info on CPOP.

    1x is not something you can turn on or off. It's whether you are in 1x area or EVDO area. If you are in 1x area, you just have to disconnect the connection if you don't want to miss any calls..

    On a side note, what kind of job do you have that it's so important that you don't MISS ANY call?

    Ok, so here's the solution for you

    Any time that you are in 1x area, make sure you disconnect the broadband connection including push mail if you are using exchange server..

    But there are other situations where you wouldn't be able to pick up a call even if you are in EVDO area.

    If you are calling someone or someone's calling you, and while the phone is still ringing, if somone calls you, the call will go straight to VM, and when broadband connection is being initiated, calls will also be forwarded to VM for a second or two.

    So just keep these things in mind...

    If he is getting a wx on Monday, he is not with VZW. Don't know if his carrier has the same options we do in 1X areas.

    I am in a 1x area and this problem has bothered me since day 1. I get regular calls from certain clients that refuse to leave a voice mail, and get annoyed when I dont call them back (they assume I see the caller ID). I keep explaining to them if I am on data or call waiting is active the call goes straight to voice mail with no caller ID or alert.

    Is it possible to get an alert of the missed call under thease conditions?

    Nope.

    Do they also get angry with you if you're roaming, switching between towers, in a dead spot, have your phone turned off, or any of the other one-hundred and one reasons why you couldn't get a missed call notification?

    Nope. Rarely need to roam, Sprint covers me well where I live and travel.

    Don't ever turn phone off.

    When I travel I have evdo and then no problem, as calls can come through.

    Just would like ability to see missed calls while using data.
