Question Only a GPRS Signal

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to force the BlackBerry to only connect to GPRS networks? What I would like the BlackBerryto do is to not connect to the GSM network if it is avaliable. I know it is an odd request... but you know how those CEO's are.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

It doesn't work that way. GPRS is a protocol than runs on GSM. No GSM, no GPRS.

I figured that would be the answer... figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for replying Talldog

If disabling the phone is what you're after, you can do that via policy.
