    A friend of mine uses T-Mobile (GSM) and can stay logged into his Internet
    connection and still receive calls. When I use my SprintPCS phone and I'm
    connected to Vision, calls go straight to voice mail. Does Sprint's voice
    and data use the same connection?

    As far as I'm aware, yes. I don't believe that any Sprint phones will let
    you 'take the call' while using Vision, where other less 'intrusive'
    functions such as SMS message receipt or voice mail notification are
    different depending on the particular phone model (i.e., newer phones tend
    to allow it, older phones will wait until your Vision session is finished to
    notify you).

    Yes, when in a PCS Vision session (while the 2 arrows are solid or
    flashing) you can't receive a voice call or a VM notification. But
    during pauses in the session (when the arrows go gray), you can receive
    a call, which then prevents you from continuing your PCS Vision session.

    This is different than T-Mobile GSM/GPRS method.

    Not that I'm aware of. Last month, while up in NYC / Brooklyn for the
    holidays, I was on Vision connected to my laptop, and got a call midstream
    while downloading email. I completed the call in a minute or two, and my
    email was still downloading.

    My circumstances I just posted were a bit different Frank. I had an active
    Vision connection and still received a voice call last month. I was a bit
    surprised to see that happen ... .

    Are you sure it was active? When I first got vision I thought that was the
    case but what happened was that I would get the call between active
    sessions the phone just didn't update it's icons.
