BB Bold 9700 :: TMobile Random Between Switching Edge / 3G And UMA
Nov 25, 2009
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..
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.
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.
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
I know once a blackberry is unlocked, its unlocked forever buuuuuuut recently my storm started switching from EDGE to edge...CONSTANTLY! i cant stay on the internet long enough to do anything, i called t-mobile and made sure all my settings were correct and they were
it also switches from T-mobile to Verizon and then freezes up, does anyone know whats wrong with my storm? should i resend my service books?
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
I have an 8320 running on 081. When I first got the phone emails (hotmail) were working perfectly and the EDGE icon on the home screen was with capital letters.3 days the edge switched to small letters and no more emails are coming in and I cannot send any PIN.My carrier says that my data plan is working fine on their end and that I should be able to receive my emails.
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?
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 18.104.22.168 (and I can't find any newer OS for the AT&T Bold).
My bold switches between 3G,3g,edge,gprs constantly at times. i do not think it the network because here i have used iphone 3g and the samsung Eternity and both keep a stedy 3G signal. I am running the original op sys v22.214.171.124 and this is my secound Bold and I have also had my sim card replaced. I am on the att network of course. is this normal?
First two locked up constantly and rebooted. All I did was:
Set up Yahoo Mail Download Google Maps, Point, Movies Download One Theme - 18 Icon BlackBerry 9700 Sync with Yahoo Contacts Sync with Lotus Notes Calendar Only. Back Up WiFi connection to home router Bluetooth headset
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?
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.
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.
I got a the blackberry storm 2 9550 and I had it unlock to work on tmobile network and my email and internet is working but any 3 party app the need use the Internet won't work. When I try to use myspace or ubertwitter my EDGE go upper case to Lower case. But if I use my email or the web browsers it work just fine. I typing this up on my storm now. My apn is set wap.voicesteam.com . I need to know is there any way to fix this so I can use 3 party apps.
I cannot make a call on 3g bold I get call failed or congestion I have to take phone off 3g this is my 3rd replacement and i only had the bold like 2months what should i do at this point a friend in trouble www.twittter.com/golden1ne
hey guys as you can tell from the title that i got a foreign 9700 but it's not working on tmobile's 3g network! is there a way that can make it work on it ? and by the way I got a flexpay account on it.
I think most of ppl here konws than t mobile`s 9700 using different 3g frequency, it wont work with fido`s 3g network, I`m think using software to change my 9700`s vendor ID to rogers, is this gonna changes 9700`s 3g frequency? any one done this before?
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
I have an iPhone 4S on AT&T. I upgraded it so I have 4G (although it's technically still 3G). Sometimes when there's not a lot of signal the Internet just drops to EDGE and no matter how many times I restart the phone it's still on EDGE. How do I fix this so it's always 4G?
this is a shot in the dark, bacically my girlfriend threw my phone against the the wall the other day as they do, ever since then it randomly turns off and i have to take the battery out and put it back in and the battery would have gone down quite abit, the battery level goes up and down which is weird.
I have an unlocked (but not jailbroken) 2G iphone on Tmobile, but I'm thinking off switching (the whole family) to ATT and getting a 3G iphone for myself and giving my old 2g iphone to my wife.
1) Does my 2g iphone need to activated on the ATT network and how exactly is that done? I was thinking of getting one the of free phones through ATT, 2 year contract, then taking the SIM card out and putting it the old 2G iphone?! Is that possible?
2) Will I be forced to get a data plan for the 2G iphone after activation? ( My wife is not interested in getting a data plan...Wifi is sufficient)
Was able to log in google talk, yahoo messenger, etc. I tried to log into msn messenger and double check my username and password and it is correct. Check to see if I have the service book for msn messenger and I do. The error for messenger is: "connection error 65: problem receiving data from the server." Any1 have this problem also on t-mo and know how to fix it?
If any contact is in my address book I cannot send out email or pin messages has a red clock. tmobile sent me new phone does samething. we did everything to basic to redo operating system. super frustrating never had an issue till i got my 9700.
