| | How to make my 8320 manually change network? (roaming question)
Please Login to Remove!
I have an 8320, here is my problem:
I have service with AT&T in San Diego, however, twice a week I cross the USA/Mexico Border to visit some clients in Tijuana Mexico. The phone should switch to Telcel or Movistar, but it holds on to the AT&T signal, even though the signal is so weak I canít effectively make or receive calls. But the phone refuses to switch to the Mexican carrier, even though the Mexican carrierís signal is much stronger, it always tries to default to AT&T. (you'd think it would default to the strongest carrier, but it doesn't)
With that said, if I drive further into Tijuana where the AT&T signal canít reach, then the phone switches to the Mexican carrier and works perfectly.
The issue I am having is when the AT&T signal is present, but not strong enough to conduct business.
Is there a way I can force the phone off AT&T while I am in Tijuana? Is there a mode, or setting I can adjust?
I have tried Open Options > Mobile Network and see if I can change from automatic to manual selection, however my 8320, However I only have 3 options:
Data Services (on and off)
Connections preferences (Mobile network only, Preferred, Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi Preferred)
Mobile Network: (The name of the network)
There is no option for switching from auto to manual.
