Ready to Go phones do not support data services, data calls over GSM networks use a different channel
to the voice channel, so your screwed there too. There are actually 8 GSM channels broadcasting and
receiving at one time or another, voice send-receive, sms send-receive, data/fax send-receive, network
paging, and channel requests going.
And there isnt a way to get a data call to route over the voice channel, because at the network, when a
voice call comes in it squirts the data through a filter to suppress noise due to transmission, hence it will
screw up all data coming in and out.
