Re: Can you make an HTTP connection to retrieve data from a website while the phone is ringing ?

I believe it depends on the device and/or if it has a wifi connection. If the device is a 3G device on an HSPA network (Bold 9700 for instance), then you'd be able to.

 

If the device is on a CDMA network (Verizon Storm 9530) but does not have Wifi, it won't work.

 

If the device is on CDMA with WIfi (Verizon Storm2 9550) and is connected to a Wifi access point, it'll work.
