Default T-mobile cell signal 'Off'

Please Login to Remove!

I know RIM has been having issues today, but my antenna signal in the upper right hand corner reads "OFF" as opposed to "X" or "SOS" to indicate no signal. Any pointers? Did T-Mobile go down today as well?

HELP!!

Bob

This issue has nothing to do with the outage going on today. Occasionally, for whatever reason, the device will turn it's radio off. Not sure why. However, just turn it back on as described above.

from your home screen click on the menu button (the button to the left of the trackball), then find manage connections, then check mobile network.

Welcome to the forums!!!
