Default Spotty roaming data access

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a US Cellular customer. Lately (since ~March, curiously similar to when I upgraded to 4.5.0.138), every time I roam I have issues with my BB not being too friendly with sending and receiving data.

For instance, I'll send an email (I'm a BES user) and the message will sit there in a pended state for a while. The little arrows indicating send/receive never blink, and eventually when I check it again (minutes later usually), the message is gone. It might be 5 minutes, it might be less.

Same thing works with browsing the web. I enter an address, it stares at me. Eventually, sometiems after I press enter 5-10 times, then little arrows start blinking and I get my site. I think it's more a factor of time than pressing enter 5-10 times, though.

BB Messenger can take a minute+ to send a message.

This only happens when I roam (Denver, San Francisco, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Tucson - confirmed to be Verizon in most of those), not while on USCC's network. I get the 1X icon the entire time (no 1x). USCC does not have EVDO agreements, so 1X is expected.

USCC tech support says the phone itself is fine, it's just that the native customers get priority over roaming customers. That is, Verizon customers get priority on Verizon networks and USCC has to get in line behind them.

I'd believe that if this only happens once in a while, however it's every time I roam.

Any thoughts?

1x/1X is not a full speed connection so I would not expect it to be that quick for you.

Did you have battery lock before upgrading to 4.5.0.138?

You can try running 4.5.0.160 the latest software version, their is a sticky at the top of the thread.

It's not a slowness thing, it's a no communications thing. The little arrows don't show up indicating it's even trying to communicate. It just sits there.

What's battery lock?

.160 scares me based on the feedback it's getting.

Ment to say Battery Pull sorry.

4.5.0.160 has been running good.. Of course I took the CDMA file from the 4.5.0.77 OS (VZW's Release)
