    Hi
    While am on a phone call, i could not be able to open sprint or google map, also could't open any website?? is that normal ? if so what they mean about multitasking???

    It is normal you cannot use data and calls at the same time unless on wifi and you can multitask just about anything else

    you can do that if you are on a wifi network tho... fyi

    but yeah, its a network limitation (CDMA) that you cannot do data and voice at the same time. If the webOS was on ATT, then you can definitely do that.

    open up your contacts, your calendar, your memos, your tasks, your settings, your apps...they all open & run! it's simply the data you can't use (unless, as stated above, you're on wifi)

    i don't believe the limitation will be existing on Sprint's 4G network, nor will it on Verizon's LTE network... It doesn't 'technically' exist on AT&T, however, the speed is greatly slowed while on the phone...

    Remember, multitasking has nothing really to do with data use, it is simply the ability to switch between apps and have multiple apps open at the same time. WebOS blows the competition away with this since it does it with SUCH AMAZING EASE!!!

    I wouldn't know about AT&T GSM, being European myself, but my O2 Pre's data speed does not noticeably sink while I'm talking.

    I'm so glad that Europe is a CDMA-free zone. I can't count how often I'm talking and using data services at the same time. Only being able to do that while logged into a WiFi network would seriously bum me out.

    Oh, it's annoying alright, no worries there! Just yesterday I was on the phone with a friend making movie plans & I needed to check another time so I flipped back to Flixster & realized AGAIN that I couldn't use data since I was on the phone! Hopefully soon we get that corrected.

    The U.S. doesn't have much of any open wifi networks unless your on at&t and even their wifi network is pretty weak(small).

    Really, I've not once came across an open wifi network in cali. Alot of home wifi networks, but all are locked. Who supports these wifi networks you speak of?

    pretty much every restaurant, coffee shop, mall, etc. Even several bars I know of. Most advertise it on doors/windows. And that's a lot of places because my town is pretty over-retailed, imo.

    Cool, I may not be looking hard enough. I know Mcd's and starbucks have wifi, but that's not everywhere you go. I did read some place on the web that the U.S. is way behind the rest of the modern world in wifi deployment.

    When I went toronto, my pre picked way more wifi than here in atlanta. Big difference in number of open networks available.

    they must be running the hotspots off of propane generators. and they are probably all the old 802.11b routers that were built before there was security available...

    Yea, the issue is definitely with AT&T's network.

    Last I heard Verizon was experimenting with telephony over Rev. A which would give the same effect as current GSM networks allowing calls and data use at the same time on a CDMA network.

    CDMA network limitation.

    I don't find myself needing to use data when I'm actually talking on the phone. Does anybody actually do that a lot? I know AT&T advetises it, but...

    Maybe since I'm on Sprint I don't know what I'm missing...

    every now and then I wish I had it, like on boring conference calls where wifi isn't available. also when using MHS it would be nice. but not enough to put up with AT&T. LTE is right around the corner, too.
