Since Sprint DC still retains the same minor deficiency as Nextel DC, I recommend Sprint make a minor modification to its Call Alert system.

I propose call alerts send a standard SMS text message that will go through even if the other party is on a phone call. Sprint used to do that with its picture mail service. Although it wasn't possible to view the picture while on an active call, you at least knew you had one.

I believe this would be a useful feature. I liked it on my old ic602.

Are you referring only to the single case of receiving text notification of a DC Alert while you are in-process on a regular, full-duplex voice call, or are you also referring to receiving a text notification if you are in-process on a DC call?

I will experiment with our two Torques this weekend and see if I can figure out the exact use case you are describing, and/or how the Torques behave when a DC Alert is sent while one of them is in-process on a full-duplex voice call.
