    Can this be done simultaneously while on 3g? I multitask and this is very important. I'm looking at the cliq and droid...

    Can't use Data and Voice connections at the same time on any phones or carriers as far as I know.

    The simultaneous use of data when using 3G service seems to depend mostly on the carrier's implementation. I know that in the USA, AT&T and T-Mobile can do this since the GSM band and 3G bands are separate and different. There is apparently some question whether or not this works on CDMA phones and EV-DO.

    With regard to SMS, this has nothing to do with data service as it's a protocol of the underlying voice (GSM/CDMA) service. Of course you can receive texts while on the phone--that's been possible before phones could even do data.

    You can not talk and and use data at the same time on CDMA networks.
