Title: Synchronized use of a wireless channel by multiple applications

Abstract: A method includes allocating a first channel of a wireless communication device. The first channel is allocated in response to a request for a channel to be used by a first application executing at the wireless communication device. The method also includes preventing establishment of a second channel for a second application executing at the wireless communication device by indicating to the second application, from a modem of the wireless communication device, that the allocated first channel is to be used by or is available for use by the second application. For example, the second channel may not be established for the second application at a later point in time because the second application may instead complete data transfer operations via the allocated first channel at an earlier point in time.
