NOT RECIEVING PHONE CALLS ON SPRINT 700WX

I have noticed that I am not recieving all of my phone calls and I found out why. Is there a hack for this?
I have my phone to interrupt the data connection for the phone call but that only applies to EVDO. How can i do this for all type of data connections EVDO AND 1xRTT data connections?


Why don't the alerts appear?
There are a few conditions that will prevent notification of incoming calls.

You are actively transferring data on a certain type of Internet connection
Your smartphone's Password, Owner Information, and Ringer settings are obscuring the Incoming Call alert

You are actively transferring data on a certain type of Internet connection
Your mobile service provider may use different kinds of Internet connections, depending on your geographic location. Some of these connection types allow you to receive calls while actively transferring data; others do not.

For example, Verizon Wireless offers two types of Internet connection: BroadbandAccess (EVDO) and NationalAccess (1xRTT). You won't be able to select the type of connection, because it is provided automatically by the closest cell tower. You can see which type of connection your phone is currently using by looking at the top of the Today screen. If there's an EV icon, you're using BroadbandAccess. If there's a 1X icon, you're using NationalAccess.

Here's the catch: if a BroadbandAccess (EVDO) connection is active, you will be notified of incoming calls. When you receive the call, the data transmission is automatically interrupted. However, if a NationalAccess (1xRTT) connection is active, you will not be notified of incoming calls. They will go directly to voicemail.

Hi, first post, I am new here, been downloading all the cool stuff for my Treo 700wx

The problem is you only have one radio built into the Treo, and it is either in Data or Voice mode. Like you can't be on your phone and on dial up internet at the same time; the line is taken up by one or the other.

If you set your Activesync to only sync manually and go up to the "EV" icon next to the signal meter, click on the EV icon, then select disconnect, you should be able to avoid missing calls in 1X areas.....problem is then that you only have on demand data, and you won't get email as it arrives.......

hello

well for the first question up there I can't say if there's a fix, ask wideawake that one, but I can say that this happens also on Sprint's EVDO and 1x networks! I hate it personally myself and can't wait until they fix that. I'd hate to have to turn the EVDO off though. Is that what u are saying we have to do?

As far as I know and have read in other places, there's no workaround for phone calls interrupting the data transfer while the 1xRTT is active.

However, if someone knows of one... please enlighten us!

Verizon a year or so ago upgraded their towers to allow 1x to be interrupted. Last I heard Sprint does not. If its active there is no hack for this, it has to be done by Sprint the way Verizon did.
