That answer is about being able to shut down the phone and not empty the 
battery. That's not really about being able to use it as a real phone. At 
least for me, I _never_ shut off my mobile, so it _must_ suspend/resume.

There is a bug still in suspend handling, which will cause it to not wake up 
very often. More so in the 2.6.23 kernels, which seem to never wake up at all 
from a suspend. 

Qtopia images, you can enable suspend. This works about 60% of the time for 
me, using 2.6.22 kernel, and never using the 2.6.23 kernel.
