    Hello,

    I've noticed that while trying to multitask with the EVO I am unable to use the GPS to navigate, and the mobile data network does not work while I am on a call. I tried when I first got the phone to surf the web while I was on the phone and it worked then. I'm not sure when it stopped working. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Thanks.
    -Joe

    Voice and data simultaneously on EVO = No.

    Problem solved.

    To better clarify, since there are exceptions:

    If you are on 4G or Wifi, you CAN use data at the same time as the phone call. It will use the 4G/wifi for the data.

    If you are on 3G only, the 3G has to disable for the phone call to connect, so you will not have data in that situation.

    Note that the GPS itself should continue to work no matter what (so if you are already locked in and traveling on Google Nav, it should continue to track you), it just can't download any new maps or find new routes.
