You know there's people who keep their cell phones for 5 or 6 years--I know a couple. Login information might be required before accessing the wireless network. Sell it on Ebay and go get one directly from Tmo. I'm in Europe right now and if I use the Vodephone network I cannot recieve incomming calls. Hope this info helps a little bit. No you can not change it or add it, its not that simple. I do it all the time regardless of the signal level.
While Mobitex is very popular, I can tell you that I have not brought in a new Mobitex device for at 18 months. I did all the normal stuff, turned wireless off, on; turned device off, on; pulled battery. I have a good signal on the 957 and a so-so signal on the cell phone. Whether or not it will happen in the next 8 months is I suppose debatable, but I don't think Cingular can afford to just wait it out indefinitely. Cya Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums.
The blackberry website specifies that they are manufactured with two seperate frequencies. I'm a happy camper - well most of the time - with Cingular now. Note: If the Select Mode field is not present on the BlackBerry smartphone, contact the service provider as roaming services may not be enabled. Until they mesh their network, I guess we are just out of luck. Register a Free 1 month Trial Account.
Hi Im on Tmobile , I received a sim free unbranded 9700 as a gift. Previously I could go into Mobile Network Settings and manually choose which network I wanted to roam on. A list of available networks appears. Its with windmobile in canada and they say its a network issue and they are trying to fix it. My unit usually refuses to budge from its Cingular tower connection, even when there's no connectivity with Cingular. This may not be how or why this happens but I have not seen an sos since. So, you're stuck with whatever network they choose for you.
I was having the same problem and I'm with rogers. Has anyone found a solution to this? Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums. In Japan you're stuck with Softbank when their data connection is constantly dropping and speeds suck. I did so, and it worked. Rogers may burn in my microwave for their lies, false advertising and claims. I haven't tried bells update, appearently some issues were fixed on the Wind update, I just dont know what they were, I'm going to go into it and see if I can find out whats been done.
. I'm pretty upset with Cingular right now. I don't think that's possible as I just upgraded my 7290 to the 4. Change the Network Selection Mode field to Manual. From what I understand your blackberry will run in sos when it is piggybacking off another carriers signal and your carrier does not have a roaming agreement with them. Westel, T mobile, Pannon are no problem, but as soon as I roam onto Vodephone I'm screwed and cannot manually over ride it.
To connect to your wireless service provider's wireless network again, change the Network Selection Mode field to Automatic. Well, with my 9700, I have envy no more. Worst mistake I've made in choosing a carrier. I just replaced the two of them with a 7290 on Cingular and I now have neither. Things have changed, Rogers is no longer the superior, but has fallen behind in the times.
What this does is keeps you locked on your carriers rogers in my case frequency and you do not roam to the other carriers network when theirs's is stronger and only be able to uses sos emergency calls. After a couple of weeks the problem was resolved. Jethead stealmycar on hofo Ya I tried manual and auto and set it to 3g no luck I even exchanged the phone thinking it might be hardware but guess not Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums. Phone would be ok if you kept using it but every time you left it for more than a few minutes when you come back its in sos mode. Some people even got their roaming unlocked so that manual network selection worked for them by calling a special phone number or emailing a special email address If you're pulling hairs over Cingular, try checking HowardForums and seeing if you can come to a solution. The problem is that once you have gotten your nifty new product, the blackberry 9790 manual network selection gets a brief glance, maybe a once over, but it often tends to get discarded or lost with the original packaging. Your device is designed to switch to an appropriate wireless network automatically when you travel.
