Can you use WiFi & cellular connection at same time?
      #20827 - 08/11/05 12:09 AM

So, I really want to make the jump to a fully functional Pocket PC phone - even though I have a Mac and hate MS. A friend I know just got the Samsung i730 from Verizon and it has a fundamental flaw. You cannot have both WiFi and the cellular connections active at the same time. That means when you surf using WiFi all calls go to voicemail!! How useful is that? Rubbish! The only reason I'm not going with the Treo is because it has no Wifi, oh yeah and because the OS hasn't been updated since its introduction!!

Can anyone confirm if the Cingular Siemens SX66 can have both WiFi and cellular connection active at the same time?

Many thanks.

Verizon has a nasty habit of locking features. The latest Apache, available from Sprint, and soon from Verizon, are basically the same. The Verizon's, however, has the wi-fi and phone function locked such that it couldn't be used at the same time. This is preliminary, and we don't know if they will do that when its announced, but its Verizon we're talking about..
Many thanks.

The Siemens SX66 supports simultaneous use of WiFi and cellular. The Verizon Samsung i730 is one of the few that doesn't. There is a hack to enable WiFi without disabling the cellular radio. Check out pdaphonehome.com for that hack. For the i730 + hack, keep in mind your battery level will fluctuate with both radios on and may give a false low reading because the heavy drain will temporarily reduce voltage. That may be why Verizon disabled it in the shipping version.
