Default 7100g Cingular - GSM Only?

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a 7100g on Cingular. Is it possible to set the phone to GSM only, as to "avoid" getting emails at certain times, while maintaining phone/SMS service?

Im not sure why you wouldnt want to get emails at certain times, but you can turn the notifications off for emails so they wont make a sound or vibrate.

I already have those notifications modified. Those "certain times" include, mainly, the weekend when I want nothing to do with work.

Unfortunately no. It's a feature I'd like to see simply because if I'm roaming somewhere, I'd prefer to not rack up roaming data chages just to keep my cell phone with me.

hi, i believe there is an easy way to do this.

go to the home screen.
click on "profiles"
and select "phone only"

that should do it!

Actually that would not help. The Phone only is a profile... so all it does is changes the alerting behaviour. In this case, the phone only profile would turn off the messaging alerts, but not actually stop the messages from being downloaded.

Messages > Options > Send Email to Handheld.

Don't know if that's a BES only feature or not.

Haven't tried it, but will disabling "Push" work for what you want to do?

Perhaps we should email RIM directly and petition such a feature. It seems like it would be a configuration in the phone/software, since when the device first boots it logs on in GSM mode. I'm up for writing such a letter...any others interested?

I tried disabling the "Redirect incoming messages to your handheld" in the Desktop software (I am on BES by the way). This takes a number of steps, plus I have to be on my PC to do it. Additionally, if I re-enable the redirection, messages are not sent retroactively.

It would seem that preventing the handset from logging onto the network as gprs/GPRS might help me reach this goal.

FWIW, my 4.0 7100t can disable incoming messages from the phone.
