| | Trying to understand the network indicators...
Please Login to Remove!
I've had my 7100 for about a week and a half and something strange happened today that I wanted to ask you guys about. I was inside a building and I lost coverage temporarily.
When I went back outside, the network indicator showed "gprs" instead of "GPRS" and the phone said "Data Connection Refused".
I cycled the power a couple of times and tried stopping and restarting the radio. Nothing worked. Finally I removed/replaced the battery and it came back.
Couple of questions:
What would cause this and is there a better way to recover?
What are the different indications (GPRS, gprs, etc.) and what do they mean?
The manual doesn't say anything about this, but I had a CSR from TMO tell me that GPRS was full strength and gprs wasn't. I'm sure there's a better explanation than this...
