Palm Mobile Hotspot

When I connect my laptop through my Palm Mobile Hotspot, if I make or receive a call on my phone does the connection to my laptop shut down?  I made a call this morning with my Palm and even though the wireless network was listed as having excellent reception on my laptop, I could not connect to the internet on my laptop.  Was this just a "one off"?

When using your phone as a modem, the tethering takes over your voice service;  therefore, you won't  know if you are receiving a phone call.  Your calls will automatically be routed to your voicemail and once you disconnect from your PC , you will see the missed calls notifications.   So if you placed a phone call while you were connected, you probably just disabled your tethering and it hadn't synced to your PC at the time.
