BB Bold 9700 :: TMobile Random Between Switching Edge / 3G And UMA

I am curious as to how when im indoors the 9700 switches randomly(it appears) between Edge and UMA.Why is this and it this normal??? What dictates its setting when i have set the 9700 to WiFi?? As a result of my self admitted lacking tech skills on the issue it all appears random but i suspect its not..Happy Thanksgiving..

BB Bold 9700 :: Tmobile Is The Best - Signal Dropping - Edge To Gps
Always maintained a very strong 3g signal, 5 bars always no matter where I was. The last 3 or 4 days my signal started dropping like crazy to EDGE - edge - to gps or whatever to no signal. Did everything to try and fix it. Called T-Mobile about the problem and they said no problem we are sending you a new 9700. I will have it Wednesday afternoon. I asked if it will be a new one or refurbished, she said a new one. You can't beat that with a stick. They have the best customer service out of all the carriers. Just wanted to tell my recent experience with my carrier.

BB Bold 9700 :: Switching 3G To EDGE?
Im thinking to purchase the 9700, but i am wondering if the 9700 has an option to switch frequencies from EDGE to 3G or vice-versa? As I recall, when the 9000 first came out, it did not have that type of option.

BB Bold 9700 :: Switching From UMA To 3G Or Edge Calls Dropping
Is anyone else having problems with dropped calls when switching from UMA to 3G? Where I work I do not have a signal in the building, so I keep my WIFI on so I can both make and receive phone calls while inside.

The problem occurs when I'm on the phone and step outside. I lose my connection with the router, and instead of switching from UMA to 3G, my call is dropped, and it takes my phone about 10 seconds to find the 3G signal.I was hopping that upgrading the .442 would solve the problem, but it has not

BB Bold 9000 :: Possible 3G - EDGE Switching With 5.0?
Is it possible or even probable that with the rolling out of 5.0 software, we can see the option for AT&T BOLD's to choose between 3G and EDGE in the "Manage Connections"?

AT&T is rolling out the EDGE ONLY 8900 sometime soon, so they're obviously not %10000 dedicated to switching everything over to 3G as we once thought they were?

I really hope they do allow this...its one of my favorite things on my iPhone, and one thing I don't like about my AT&T branded BOLD. I don't want to debrand it, but it push comes to shove... I'll have to

BB Bold 9000 :: Bold Switching From 3G To EDGE To GRPS
When I am in an area with solid 3G reception, I am constantly having my bold switch over to EDGE while trying to use the browser. It switches back and forth quite a bit. It also ends up on GRPS while I am on a call in the same areas.I know the 3G is good because it will be at 5 bars working great and i have had other 3G phones in the same areas and never had these problems. Anyone else have these issues? Is something wrong with my BOLD?

BB Bold 9000 :: AT&T Bold Switching Constantly Between 3G / Edge And GSM
My blackberry bold is dropping calls like crazy and generally lagging because it's constantly switching from 3G to Edge to GSM. It does this as I'm standing still here at the house. Starts out with 4 bars of 3G, then drops to 3, then 2, then 1, then Edge, then back to 3G (1bar). The signal just fades as though the wind were blowing it around.This means that calls are dropped, emails don't transmit, and web pages fail to load. This happens all day long.

I've researched the problem as best I can, but I have not found a working solution.Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm on AT&T. The operating system is (and I can't find any newer OS for the AT&T Bold).

BB Bold 9700 :: BB 9700 Bold / Random Keypad Lock
I have a problem with my Blackberry and would be grateful if anyone knows what the problem is.I have only my Blackberry 9700 bold for 1 month or so.I am unable to lock my keypad by using the lock key on top of the phone. This has happened before but after charging my phone it started to work again. I have turned my phone on and off, tried charging it and the button still doesn't work. Although the keypad will lock when I put it into the leather case.Do you think it is a problem with my blackberry and I should return it? Or is this a problem people have had before and if so, how do I fix it?

BB Bold 9700 :: How Is 3G On Tmobile?
I'm in Southern CA and have been considering going back to T-Mobile specifically for the BB 9700, but being on Verizon for the past year the 3G (although CDMA) coverage has been amazing I am a bit reluctant to jump ship.

IPhone :: Cisco VPN On Tmobile Edge
I'm using Tmobile with data on Edge and can successfully connect to Cisco VPN, however when the connection is established, no data flows through. Eg: No Website browsing on Safari and therefore no Outlook sync. However if I connect from Wifi, the connection works. When I disconnect from VPN, then the connection works fine on Edge.

BB Bold 9700 :: No Access To 3G Network With TMobile
I had my Bold 9700 delivered from Saudi Arabia. I was absolutely in love with the phone with its incredible speed and my favorite thing about it was the 3G network. It worked absolutely great in Egypt. When I moved back to the US (Ive been here 3 days now), I can only use T-Mobiles EDGE network. If I search manually for networks, it finds AT&Ts 3G network, but I cant use it since Im T-Mobile and not AT&T. When I went to the T-Mobile store, they told me that since T-Mobile didnt sell me the phone, my phone wouldnt find their 3G network. Any idea what I can do to fix this? The phone is brand new, and its a shame that I cant use its best feature

BB Bold 9700 :: 3G To EDGE To GPRS?
When I am on a call for more than 15 mins or so I notice my service switches from 3G to EDGE then GPRS.

Every time I disconnect one of those calls I see GPRS. It will go right back to 3G 5 - 10 seconds after I disconnect.

Anyone know why this would happen? I have T-Mobile...

BB Bold 9700 :: Price Tracking For Tmobile Purchased
There seems to be a range of prices people are paying for the device directly from T-Mobile, so let's post the following information to see if we can discern a pattern:

1) Price paid for 9700 and whether that includes tax
2) Length of contract (not sure if they are offering 1 year at this point)
3) If you chose express shipping, were you charged for it?
4) Any discounts on your account
5) Upgrade eligibility or were you a new line activation, new customer, etc.

I'll start:

1) $217.99 - unclear if tax is included
2) 2 years
3) $19.99 - overnight
4) Corporate discount
5) Phone was out of contract, so full upgrade eligibility

I am having problem tethering my bold 9700 to my pc for use as a modem. I am on Tmobile service and am running Vista OS.

BB Bold 9700 :: Server Dropping Calls - Tmobile
It's only been 1 month & I'm already on my 2nd Blackberry 9700 with Tmobile. I'm running v5.0.0.330. Since day one, I've experienced severe dropped calls that I've never experienced with Tmobile. Severe to the point that I can be on a 30 minute conversation & the call will drop at least twice. I was once on an hour long conversation that kept getting interrupted by 5 dropped calls.

Add to that, there's another Tmobile user in my household who uses the Google phone & no dropped calls at all, which tells me that it's not my coverage area that's causing the dropped calls.I'm also getting dropped calls when I'm speaking to different callers using different carriers & not just those with a specific service provider.

So, I'm convinced that it's the BB 9700 problem. It may even be that this 3G phone is in conflict with the stystems or non-3G users. Nevertheless, I'm so fed up and wanted to know if this is a problem that other BB 9700 users are experiencing. If so, who's your carrier? Has anyone upgraded your OS and if so, has it fixed the issue or have you experienced problems after the upgrade?
