This is a fairly common issue with your model phone and I recommend giving straight talk a call. Phones have needed to be replaced in most cases.

My phone is saying digital roam mode when i make an outgoing call, how do i take it off so i can make outgoing call with no problem.


This is pretty much what you need to do. Just turn off all the roaming features. However when you roam it typically means you dont have service through Sprint so dont be surprised if when you turn off roaming capabilities your phone doesn't get ANY signal. Here's the link to your phones manual page 112 is about roaming.


Setting Roam Mode
Your phone allows you to control your roaming
capabilities. By using the Roaming menu option, you
can determine which signals your phone accepts.
Choose from two different settings on your phone to
control your roaming experience.
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming > Set Mode.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Sprint Only to access only the Sprint network and
prevent roaming on other networks.
n Automatic to seek service on the Nationwide Sprint
Network. When Sprint service is unavailable, the
phone searches for an alternate service.
Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network: the
onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard
makes it easy to manage your roaming by requiring an
extra step before you can place or answer a roaming
call. (This additional step is not required when you make
or receive calls while on the Nationwide Sprint Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Call Guard.
2. Select On or Off.
To place roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. From standby mode, dial 1 + area code + the
seven-digit number and press .
2. Read the message and press .
Note Call Guard is turned on by default on yourphone.

To answer incoming roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. Press .
2. Read the message and press .
Data Roam Guard
Depending on service availability and roaming
agreements, yourphone may be able to access data
services while roaming on certain other networks. You
can set your phone to alert you when you are roaming
off the Nationwide Sprint Network and try to use data
services such as messaging.
To set your Data Roam Guard notification:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Data Roaming.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Always Ask (default mode) sets your phone's Data
Roam Guard feature on. You will see a prompt that
will require you to respond anytime you access
data services while roaming.
n NeverAsk turns your phone's Data Roam Guard
feature off. Your phone will not notify you of your
roaming status when you access data services.
Touse data services when Data Roam Guard is active:
© When a notification appears informing you that data
roam charges may apply, press ROAM (left softkey)
to connect.
Note If the Call Guard feature is set to On, you need to
take extra steps to make and receive roaming calls.

My samsung tocco lite has only just started showing a r next to the signal strength what is the R representing


It stands for roaming, which means that the phone is connected to your providers network. You may want to check with your provider to make sure that your not being charged extra for roaming, as this can become costly.

Hope this helps

I cant manually activate my blackberry pearl I went to options, mobile network but all it says is roaming.


See if this works....

-Press menu key
-Click OPTIONS
-Select Mobile Network
-Click on "START PROVISIONING"

It should give you a message saying: PROVISIONING COMPLETED SUCCESFULLY.

You wont need a MSL code if you do it this way.

IPOD Touch wont connect to internet?


Some troubleshooting techniques for this problem would be to connect to another network, maybe your neighbor's (one without a password) and connect back to your network, it could also be a problem with your router/modem even though it shows a full signal, try reconnecting your router or modem.. Whether this works or not, try using the "Easy Wi-Fi" app, its free, download it from the app store, and set it up, it could help in getting a signal or maintaining it. This is a common issue, and sometimes with the ipod touch it may connect and disconnect from the internet. If your computers or other devices are having the same problem you may want to consult your service provider. Hope I helped

LG KS360 Signal in and out and roaming all the time


Mine does the same thing. But that actually is because my house has terrible signal in certain parts... The best thing to do is to make sure that where you do makes call ect. is somewhere with very good reception..

Something like that tho can't really be helped.. I think this phone is just generally terrible for getting a good signal.

My phone wont let me on the internet


Hey, I have a few possible solutions for you. The big thing is do you have a full signal where you are trying to access the internet? If you are in Roaming you can't use the Internet! Look on your phone and there should be an Icon that indicates If Data Services are Picking up a signal. Try this if you don't have the Data Service Icon ,which normally will be IN ROAMING Mode, then you will know what is wrong. If the signal is perfect and the Data Service is Good, then go into settings and make sure that you don't have AIRPLANE MODE turned on, this blocks incoming calls and the Internet.

Keep loosing my wirless connection


Router setup page for a DLINK should be 192.168.0.1 Right click on the D and click on show available wireless networks. There maybe more than showing. If a neighbor has one or if you have another pc it might be trying to use rhe network card from that oc. Make sure that you click on DLINK for wireless connection. You just may see some other connections and find out that it's trying to use another connection.
