    Hey peeps,

    I was informed that you could use the Wi-Fi Hotspot and make/receive calls simultaneously.

    I talked to a few people from Verizon (including a couple of management friends) that this was not the case.

    Its either/or. If a call comes in while the hotspot is being used the hotspot will drop the transmission.

    Is this true? Or can the Droid 2 take/make phone calls while using it as a wi-fi hotspot?

    Thanks for your help!!

    As soon as the call comes in the hotspot the transmission is dropped.

    The rooted tether app is what I tested it on.

    No, you cannot use them at the same time.
