Default BB not picking up cell network when in range

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry Classic

I live out of range of the cell phone towers. I generally lose my cell network about 3/4 mile from the house, then pick it up again automatically at the same place when I leave the house and head into town.

Ever since a BB OS update a couple of weeks ago, my BB will not pick up the cell network correctly once it loses it until I restart the BB. The cell signal goes to a red X as I head home (generally close to the same place), and it does not come back again when I leave the house and hit the usual signal area. I can drive all the way into town, and even in the next hour, the red X persists. But as soon as I restart the BB, I get my cell signal back almost immediately.

Current system shows Software Release, OS Version, Build ID 903214

I even tried turning off the mobile network radio, then back on, but the red X persists until I restart the BB (as long as I am in a coverage area when I do the restart).
