    Yes. Edit the profile(s) you use and select Blackberry Messenger New Message. Scroll down to the bottom and it says "Notify Me During Calls", to which you say yes. :]

    I thought you had to have 3G to run voice and data at the same time and I didn't think the 8900 for tmobile had 3G yet or will it work over UMA

    I'm not sure exactly. Seeing as my profiles got reset on the last OS beta update, it auto switched this feature off and I didn't realise. I've turned it back on now but none of my bbm addicts are online to test this with.

    I figured it's the same situation as when you get notified of an SMS message while in a call. The 8900 for any network doesn't have 3G, no.

    Correct. GSM 3G allows for simultaneous voice and data.

    UMA also allows this, I do it all day every day

    While on EDGE or even edge (without data) or gprs GPRS I can receive and send texts while on the phone.

    text you will have no problem since they are not data, but emails, pin messages and bbm are all data and like uber said unless you have UMA or 3G those won't go through

    uberspeed is right on the money here. Just to clarify, it is only going to work this way on the 8900 if you are using both the cellular (mobile network) and WiFi radios on the device simultaneously. You also need successful connections with each radio.

    The radio is hardware within the phone that connects you to a network - WiFi or Cellular.
