Re: Gphone Roaming Problem
I would typically tell you to disable the international data roaming, but after reading that article im having second thoughts as well. but does that scare you enough to leave your phone home?
if you really need to take the g1 overseas, i would almost remove the data package from your rateplan and just add it again once you get home. that should prevent any data overages because by removing it, you no longer have the ability to browse the web except on wifi....
only downside is, that if you happen to lock yourself out of your handheld to the point of it asking you to log in again, you will need the g1 dataplan added once again to be able to log in. keep in mind, that can take up to 48 hours to provision, so if you decide to remove it....make a mentle note DO NOT LOCK YOURSELF OUT :)

There are two possible problems.
1. Settings on your phone
2. Mobile company have not activated roaming
Both problems can be solved by giving your mobile company a call. They can check the status of your account, and they will probably have the directions to set the correct settings on your phone as well.
If it happens to everyone you call it is a problem with the phone itself. Either the mic is damaged or the transmitter is failing. It needs professonal service. Otherwise, there are inexpensive replacements all over eBay.
If it happens from time-to-time with different people it is a connection problem. The only thing you can do is update roaming or restart your phone. If you use Verizon dial *228 and select option 2 to update roaming. Verizon says to do this once per month or after traveling 20+ miles. In the case of non-Verizon phones take out the battery and then put it back in and turn on the phone.
If it only happens with one person, their phone has a problem, not yours.
it could be an issue with your sim card have you tried a different one? or you could try your sim in a different device and see if it has an issue. are you having this issue everywhere? Have you tried removing the sim and putting it back in? Those phones will let you do a manual network selection. Tmobile is roaming partners with at&t so you should be able to connect to ether tower with no roaming fees.
yea i also have the same problem even though i have my data switched off nd no gps etc. wont i b charged for the e symbol meaning it uses data even thou i have data switched off? this is really weird someone please help us out. thanks
If you're just speaking to the MC70, there is a setting on the CDMA (Sprint, Verizon), but I don't know if this works on the GSM version. 1) Got to: Start > phone 2) Dial ##DEBUG (##33284) 3) Select Talk 4) Select System 5) Select Details. The rest should be clear.
call T mobile support, tell them that u r going to use your phone in philippines and its cheaper for u to use philippinesim cards than activate the international roaming to your phone,they will give u the unlock code..i did that too when i go back to philippines..and also tell them that you are going to freeze your account...and activate it when you return...so that they wont bill you if you stay more than 30 days...
hmmm. I had a similar problem when I tried to use an hiphone i32triband (the seller said it was a cect168 quadband)...does your wireless network support g3 quadband? or your phone's band? and if so, is your phone at the proper setting? go to settings on your phone and make sure it's at your network providers' band setting. You can also go to this supremely useful website, GSM roaming-US, http://www.gsmworld.com/roaming/gsminfo/cou_us.shtml and find your network provider's details there. u gota sweet phone!!!
For the first part, make sure you sync the phone and are you using after you pick the ringers.
Second Part, I had this problem make sure you press ok i was using other keys like back assuming it would not, what service do you have because most current plans do not charge roaming unless you use more than 50% of your minutes while roaming.
