Default Bold 9000 & Roaming Problems in South Korea

Please Login to Remove!

I am the bb administrator for my company and I have a colleague travelling in South Korea on business at the moment. He has a bb 9000 and our local network is Vodafone Ireland. VF IE told me that he should connect to KT Powertel but he can't find any such network.

He found two networks KR KTF and SK Telecom. He selects SK Telecom and goes to 3G or 2G and 3G but he is getting SOS on the network bar.

Has anyone come across this problem before? Is it a matter of changing settings somewhere? He is with colleagues from Singapore and Italy and their bb 9000's are working fine.

He can not connect to KT Powertel
Because KT Powertel is iDen
BB9000 does not support iDen as you konw
he is supposed to select one between KR KTF and SK Telecom
They have WCDMA network and works with BB9000
I am using bb9000 with SK Telecom
If none of two networks work, ask vodafone about roaming
Because roaminh is possible only between contracted service providers

Sorry - no answer for you, other than I used my Bold there a couple of weeks ago with no issues. SK Telecom is what came up automatically.

I would reboot the phone and make sure that data is not set to "off when roaming".

Does he have international roaming activated? This would produce an SOS condition.

Has he pulled the battery?

KT Freetel (a.k.a KR KTF), and SK Telecom (a.k.a. SKT) are the only carriers that he will be able to select.
