    Samsung galaxy note 2: Can anyone take pictures or listen to music while they are on the phone?

    I am not trying to be a dick, but why would you listen to music while talking on the phone?

    i saw something interesting while on the phone and wanted to share right away. i could not turn on the camera while i'm on the phone. so i tested other features to see what i can't do while i'm on the phone. it turns out that you can't play music as well although you can stream from youtube. really, i just want to snap a picture while i'm on the phone and not have to hang up to snap a picture. I had an HTC Evo 4G LTE and this feature was available. it would be nice to if this was available for Galaxy Note 2.

    Why is this in the root section? Has NOTHING to do with root.

    it would be nice to ...

    take pic while on phone.. if something you saw was important.
    also can then text it to the person i am talking to.

    or share some music / recording on the phone call.. "hey, listen to this.. would this be a killer theme for our project?"

    so.. can anyone confirm this? does it work on N2?

    Actually, considering there are settings that can be changed in the firmware, it could be in the root section since custom roms and mods have already enabled the functionality, and that requires root.

    oh.. I have not gotten the phone yet..

    but from your response.. i can assume that it does not do these things out of the box.

    so, with root there is a solution to enable the phone to: while on a call
    1. take pictures
    2. share your music and recorded audio files. both listen to the same thing while the 2 individuals talk about it?

    can you provide a link to the mod?

    Not sure if the mods are broken out separately. I think I remember a link for them somewhere, but they are incorporated into some of the custom roms. You can peruse this forum and check out the different roms. The Jellybomb one definitely has it. Don't have time to go through and see if a link to the individual mods was posted.

    QBKing77 made a youtube vid of that issue.

    He said that the radio may not be the type that lets us do two things at once. For sure phone & internet at the same time......
    I not saying this is the problem. But, it might be related?

    From this sentence I'm not clear if you're saying phone/internet can or cannot be done at the same time. it cant.

    The radio setup on the sprint gn2 doesn't allow svdo (voice and data on 3g). That's different than this topic.

    The whole music on the phone thing doesn't make sense. If you're listening to music and a call comes in, the music stops and resumes when the call is done. I don't know of any phone that will let you continue to listen to music. You'll just have to learn to like the crap they play when you're on hold. I think it'd be a bit much for it to know what audio pipeline you want while you're on a call or expect it to be able to juggle them appropriately.

    Do you know another phone that can do this? I like to think I'm pretty knowledgeable, so if there is, please enlighten.

    Thank you for clearing my sentence up..
    You are right us Sprint customers can not surf and talk
    at the same time.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    You can if you're on WiFi. I've been doing it like this since my Evo.
