so if me drois is rooted can i multi task on it?
your droid can multi task out of the box mate
so i can surf the net and talk on the phone
As long as your phone is on a CDMA network (Verizon, Sprint). You will not be able too. This is not the phones fault this is the network problem.
A GSM Network (ATT, T-Mobile) will allow you to do this.
A rooted phone on a CDMA network is still a phone on a CDMA network.
Also multi tasking is not defined as talking on the phone and surfing the web (using 2 networks).
I don't now if it's been tested but it would be possible to use WiFi and talk on the phone at the same time.
Don't feed the trolls.
It has been tested, and it does work -- you can talk on the phone and browse the web if you're using a WiFi connection to do your web-browsing. There are videos of it on YouTube.
(edit: No rooting required to do it, either.)
You can also talk+surf if you're using SIPdroid or another VOIP client.
And if you want to talk+surf on AT&T, you have to find a place with 3G coverage, AND manage to not get your call dropped.... good luck with that!
I live just outside NYC and work in Manhattan. I've known for a long time that you can't surf and talk on the Verizon network. The funny thing is, I know many friends and coworkers with iPhones and maybe 3 have said that it's a function they use often.
I've never needed to do it and I'm still on AT&T.
Sure, turn on WiFi.
I know over 100 with the iPhone and can Honestly say I've never seen any of them do it either.
WHAT?! You're saying a company used marketing to turn a little-known or little-used feature into a point of contention?!
And I thought it was just the beer companies making up new "technologies"... Sheesh.
