Default "Searching for Network" or "No Service"

Please Login to Remove!

Many times a day, from minutes to an hour at a time. This is not a tower issue -- the same location can be 5 bars for an hour, then "Searching for Network" the next minute. It ALWAYS happens when I use the internet browser for more than a few minutes -- this always knocks out my reception. It sometimes happens when sending/receiving emails. It always comes back at some point if I leave it alone.

I have an old blue dinosaur blackberry through my office. RIM, Blackberry 7290, T-Mobile service. The funny thing is -- this problem started a few months ago, and keeps happening even when my adminstrator swaps out devices or SIM cards. Meaning, it is happening on ALL Blackberry 7290s in our office (most people don't have one, I'm kind of low man on the totem pole).

Anyone know what the problem is or how to fix?

Thank you in advance.

If it always happens at the same location, and to all the BB's, how is it not a cell problem? Could be the browser usage is coincidence, like everyone who dies was breathing just before that.

If I'm being stupid or misreading your post, please have mercy on an old chap.

Perhaps I wasn't clear. It happens EVERYWHERE. At home, at work, at restaurants, at the park, while driving. My point about location was only meant to say the same locations where I have excellent reception one minute, it can go away the next minute.

It is not a tower or cell issue, it is something inside this model of blackberry, and it is driving me crazy. I have used this model for several years and it was not an issue until the last few months, when it is near-constant on different units of the same model.

Maybe it's time to upgrade. You have quite the old BlackBerry. Could be on it's last legs.

I agree a new model is the best decision, but it's not my choice...anyone know a fix for the old model?
