Thread: Call has highest Priority

I wish there was a way so that when you are using edge for safari, if a call cam in it would top the data transfer and take the call instead of sending it straight to voicemail. will that ever be possible?

no as with all phones that use edge calls can not come in while edge is running.

interesting. I'll have to check that out. do you know of any phone that does that stock?

I have never had an EDGE phone capable of disabling the data network for a call. Would be pretty cool though.

I think it's area based.. cause atleast in my area, calls come in while i'm using EDGE.. never fails on me. But don't quote me on this.. I have a hard time believe people when they tell me if edge is active, a call won't come in.
Look at the SK3, it's always on EDGE and calls come in.

Are you sure your data connection is active?
As I understand it, with most EDGE phones, they will not maintain an EDGE connection unless it's necessary. So you can be browsing the web, and unless you are in the process of dowloading or uploading information, the call will go through.

On windows mobile devices there's a registry tweak to where you can keep your data connection always on, as I used that for IM clients and mapping cell towers for Navizon and I can assure you I still recieve calls on my phone. Edge disconnects and as soon as call is over, it re-establishes. So maybe its device based.

The real dope is available at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPRS
and various patent sites.
Essentially a Class A or B Device on a NOM1 Network Segment should be able to get calls while data is in progress (data will stop while voice is in progress). A Class A (Pseudo device using Dual Transfer Mode) should be able to do both voice and data at the same time w/o 2 radios.
Note: From what I've read, most every AT&T tower people are encountering are NOM2 (somehow that's no real surprise).
