    It's CDMA technology so the short answer is no. You'll have to depend on looking at the notification bar.

    Also...:welcome: tot he forum. Enjoy your self here.

    Welcome to Droidforums! I am sure you will find tons of useful information here and the staff is awesome as all of the members.

    To answer your question the native messaging app does not offer that as an option. However you can download Handcent (improved messaging app) from the market and it has the ability to notify you during calls that you have received a text.

    ummm... I think you are misunderstanding. CDMA has nothing to do with this. CDMA doesn't allow data and voice at the same time as they travel the same channels. Voice and text do not follow the same protocol, and you can get a text while on a voice call.


    To the OP. GO to the android market and install Handcent SMS. It is a great replacement sms program that you use instead of the "messaging" app. First, disable notifications in "messaging". Then go into handcent sms and go to settings and enable in call sound.
