    If you are browsing over EDGE or GPRS then you cannot receive calls. Over WIFI you can, so I assume this is your problem? That is one of the reasons a lot of people want to see a 3G iPhone, as you can browse over 3G without missing calls. Hope this helps,

    this is normal if you're using your edge connection to download data (in safari, youtube, mail, etc.).

    it's a bit inconvenient, but unavoidable given how edge works. it may be implemented differently in other countries to allow calls to come through as well while data is being used, but not on at&t's network. i think 3G more easily allows data and calls at the same time - that's one thing to look forward to with a 3g iphone in the future...

    unfortunately, it's a limitation of EDGE. If you are actively sending or receiving data at the time a call comes through, it may go through to your answer machine

    so if my email was being checked at the time then my calls will be forwarded? This explains why some calls have failed to come thro.

    But if I'm on GPRS then calls will still come through right?

    No. If you are downloading data, on either GPRS or EDGE, then voice calls will be directed straight to voicemail.

    thats a bit rubbish.would be nice if my phone at least told me someone had tried to call.

    Is there a way to get visual voicemail working on a sim unlocked(o2 only) 1.1.2 uk iPhone?

    That's why people want a 3G iPhone.

    Yes!
