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.

This is an odd request.
