My friends keep teling me they can DC to me since they get the "busy in data" error. Does these mean that everytime im using BBM or the browser my cellphone is worthless?
I agree with what Casper said the IDEN network can only do one thing at a time. So if you are on the web or even an a call and someone DC's you. Then they will get that message. It happens to me as well sometimes when I try to reach some one. And once I do get in touch with them. They would say... "sorry, I was on the web." Or doing whatever it was that prevented the DC to go thru.
This is not new news though...with any older Nextel model phone, if someone was on a call or browsing the web to buy a game or ringtone, the DC would never go through. Iv'e been yelled at quite a bit for this in past years, lol

These isn't new news because you rarely used data with the older phones, but with the blackberry things are completely different. If you use your mail and bbm heavily this will start to interfere with your voice connections.
with all my messengers turned off and everything else I can think of off the 'in/out' arrows in the top right are still dancing away and it is still busy in data. Why doesn't the phone take priority over data anyway? or why isn't that an option? it's been this way for weeks and Sprint/Nextel support is too dumb to figure it out. Any suggestions from the only people I trust have decent advice?
did a battery pull, and do them often. last night I pulled it and let it set for 20 mins. put the phone back together and tried to DC myself with my wifes phone. Busy. thanks beach for the suggestion!
Sprint/Nextel's testing on their over the phone 'fixes' are hillarious. The guy wanted me to DC myself, because if it said busy he had fixed the problem....wait...what? then he said that the problem may be that everyone that couldn't reach me had the wrong number programed in and that I should type it in manually instead calling from the contact list.
Master Radio Reset followed by beach's suggestion of pulling the battery while the phone is on is what I'd try next. How's the coverage, is the phone struggling to maintain contact with the tower? If these didnt work beach what about a reset to factory before a wipe and reload?
I'm in Michigan, it's a Sprint store in a town of Kalamazoo. If that's your hood I'll get more specific, or if you happy to be that girl or her husband i will not state that I am full of lies and I was not oogling her cans.
on a more serious note service is back to being busy in data.
facebook, aim, google talk, google maps, weatherbug, thn hockey news (go wings!) shazam, crackberry, movies, tfln, mlia.
I noticed that the percentage that the phone allows in calls increases if I make sure to close out google maps and not share location upon exit (duh) but as for everything else i always close THN, don't run most of the IM's in the background and turned off pushed updates from THN.
