Default 7130 Signal Roam

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Guys,

I need help with an issue I'm having with my 7130e Sprint BB. I work in a place with no signal on the Sprint network, but I do get another signal on roam that is pretty good (probably a verizon tower).

Since I dont need data while I'm at the office is there a way to force roam and then switch back to network when I leave.

Or any other suggestions?

Thanks
Pete

I have a 7100 and when put it on automatic it will switch to any network it can pick up. Going through t-mobile first. (I have t-mobile service)

Default Quick question

I received an email from a friend about this forum. A topic on using a BB as a modem did anyone see that or does anyone have any info on this. Thanks.
