    I have read a considerable amount of information on this very addictive site, and am very close to making the leap to getting my very own Blackberry Curve before the Alltel switch to Verizon (want to keep my Alltel features and take advantage of their pricing!). One question though... after talking with friends about issues they have with their phones (iphone, other smartphones, etc.), I'm wondering if with the Blackberry OS, are you able to receive calls when using data? Basically, others complaints are that their incoming calls go to voice mail whenever they are using data apps (checking email, downloading email, web browsing, etc.). Is this the same on BB, or does it allow other data programs to run and still allow incoming calls to come in simultaneously?

    Thanks in advance!!

    future blackberry user (hopefully!)

    With VZW when on call you can't really send/receive while on call.

    EVDO Rev A doesn't allow incoming info while on Call.

    With ATT's 3G you can still work on the fly while on call.

    I had a moto Q prior to my berry and it would send calls to my vm like you said wheb doing anything with network. The berry like mentioned above does pause and let the call come through. I've never missed a call because I was on the net. Plus when you hang up it reconnects most everything you were doing and picks up where you left off

    I always recieve calls no matter what I am doing on my Curve; on the web, viewing e-mails etc.

    I am extremely happy with my Curve. It is a very stable device and extremely customizable. You can't go wrong with this phone, but everyones needs are different.

    Good luck with your decision!
