    Hey all, Im hoping to get some experts help here.

    I am going to be using the ustream broadcaster app over 3g to stream a concert this weekend.

    I do not want the app to be interrupted by anything while im using it.. no phone calls, no txt and no notifications. As it is now if a phone call comes through it will interrupt the app to take the call. If I decline the call the stream will not restart by itself. :( I know i can turn off different apps notifications but how can I go about not letting phone calls or txts through?

    I cant just put it into airplane mode since i need 3g and im a little lost on what options I would have.

    any opinions or advice?
    thanks in advance!!

    this may or may not work... just a thought to maybe try... What if you had another number you could forward your calls to another phone #? maybe that'd work???

    Somewhat of a follow up question - I have a similar problem, in that I would like to turn off phone calls, texts, etc so that when I'm listening to live streaming or using my gps I am not interrupted. It would be convenient to have a widget to simply flip this on and off, but after searching for a while I don't see many people wanting this function. I would use the 3g network to listen to the stream (not wifi) but then have the ability to no longer get calls/texts? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...thanks

    Use Google Voice. There is a widget that you just click and it activates "Do Not Disturb".
