Hi team,

I'm interested in rationalising my voice and data requirements as a road warrior.

I read in the manual for the Palm Treo PRO on page 57

If you’re connected to a GPRS
network, you cannot browse the web or
send and receive email or MMS messages
while on a voice call. If you’re connected to
a UMTS (3G or HSDPA) network, you can
perform simultaneous voice and data
functions. How can you tell which kind of
network you’re connected to? See What
are all those icons?
NOTE Some wireless service providers do
not support simultaneous voice and data
functions over an HSDPA network. Check
with your wireless service provider for
information.

Does the XT Network support voice calls and data at the same time?

Cheers
Bernard

Short answer is yes.
(I've done this many a time on my Sony Ericsson C510)

The only GPRS you'll find in NZ will be on NZ comms or Vodafones GSM (2G) network.

Not sure what the GPRS comment relates to?

It relates to the quoted section that you posted.
If you?re connected to a GPRS
network, you cannot browse the web or
send and receive email or MMS messages
while on a voice call.


As XT is a WCDMA network - you won't find any GPRS on it.

Thanks for the explanation.

I'm wondering if this function will work on the Palm Treo 750V?

It should work just fine. However note that the original Palm Treo 750v supported WCDMA only, and a later update added HSDPA support (faster network down and up).

As far as I know this update was only available for a limited time and no more.

Hi Mauricio,

I thought you might weigh in on this one, much appreciated.

Where did the update originate from?

Cheers

Yes, simultaneous voice/data transmission and no more DDTM aka "data takes priority" sending calls to voicemail, this was my main reason for my upgrade even though CDMA EV/DO was suiting my needs very well.
