    Anyone know of a good messenger that works when you are on the phone? Right now if I'm on the phone and I use google talk, messages will not come through until I get off the phone.

    Thanks for the help!

    What carrier are you with? Most don't support simultaneous voice and data usage.

    If you're on Verizon (and Sprint too, actually), you won't be able to no matter what app you're using unless you're making a VOIP call. IM's use Data, and you can not do simultaneous voice and data on CDMA Sprint or Verizon.

    If you use wifi it will work, but that's the only way.

    If no wifi, only text messaging will work for you.

    I'm on Sprint, so I feel your pain. What phone do you have? If it supports WiFi, you can juggle data and voice. My 8330 Curve, for example, did not support WiFi, but my 9650 Bold does, so I am in heaven now.

    Yay!!!
    I have wi-fi at home so I have voice at 3G and BBM over wi-fi at the same time.
    That's real multi-tasking!
    go me!!!
