Default Network dropping out

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a 8320 from Tmobile. In the past 24hrs it has dropped my network and SOS was in the upper right hand corner. I went into the mobile options and noticed it automatically switched me to a ATT network. I changed the automatic to manual and set tmobile as my provider. This didn't help. If i turned the device off and back on it would work again. This has become a pain. My pearl never had this issue. could it have anything to do with my wifi and UMA i have setup at home? It doesn't happen when im at home.
I would rather be judged by 12 than carried in a casket by 6.

Coverage varies. If there is not much coverage then it will try something else. AT&T is likely emergency calls only and that's why it says sos.

I have a few people who work for me in Detroit. They have not been having any issues with service or coverage in the area. All on AT&T.
It is possible the unit is defective. If you have a friend or co-worker with the same service in that city, ask if they are having problems.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
