Default Torch 9800 suddenly switched off my Radio Signal

Please Login to Remove!

I am currently using Vodafone UK, and I have unlocked my 9800. And this problem never happens when I am in the UK. However, whenever the roaming red triangle goes on, my radio signal only holds for a few minutes and it automatically switched off. Please HELP!!!!
Is it caused by the apps that I have downloaded?

Are you sure this problem correlates only to when you are roaming? That doesn't make any sense to me, but maybe I just don't know.

My thought, since battery pull didn't fix it, is battery next, then software (security wipe first, then wipe all device software and reinstall OS), then hardware if you've ruled out battery and device software.

For the battery, make sure battery is tight in compartment, that pins on device are not bent, and that pins and battery terminals are clean and not corroded. Make sure battery is taking and holding a charge. Test with a fully charged battery.
