View Full Version : 8830 in Europe - Set to GSM but keeps switching back to GPRS!

Hi all,

I have an 8830, originally Verizon, but unlocked, so I now use it with a SIM card from French service provider Orange. It has been working w/out problems for a year now.

Under Options -> Mobile Network, it is set to the correct Mobile Network (Orange), Network Selection Mode is Automatic, and Network Mode is GSM. When I do a hard re-boot the phone starts on GSM, but within a minute or two switches to gprs and I no longer receive calls or SMS messages.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

What if you set the Network Mode to Manual and select an available network?

Hmm, just tried switching to Manual Network Selection Mode, then choosing Orange. Network Mode is still set to GSM. I saved the new settings, did a hard reboot, and it returned to gprs...
