Is my cell phone supposed to roaming, I get messages that saysYOU ARE ROAMING DATA ROAMING; you have losrdata connectivity Theres a smaal letter R at my signal strength,


  • R = roaming as you found out
  • E = Edge, or 2g...its really slow but works in a pinch
  • 3G = 3g...still slow but better than Edge
  • H = HSPA, its a form of 3G just a lot faster...this was considered 4g before true 4g
  • H+ = HSPA+, same as above just faster
  • LTE = 4g LTE. its the fastest of the bunch.
R is for roaming. Maybe your network doesn't allow data on roaming?

Did you change phones? Sim cards? I am assuming you have the same phone, and they switched out the sim card (or maybe not?) when you changed plans.

Also, all 4G phones are also 3G and 2G phones, and they simply pick the best available. So if you lose 4G coverage, it will simply switch to the wider 3g network and when you're really remote, drop to 2G. This effects data speed primarily, there isn't any qualitative difference between them for voice and text.

It sounds like you might have something screwy with your sim card when the plan changed happened, I would call T-Mobile or visit a store and ask for a new sim card and be vocal about the poor reception after the plan change. Changing plans shouldn't normally effect reception, only changing phones/networks.

I myself experienced reception issues like yours, and the problem was a bad simcard. I'm sorry for the vague answers, but I think your best bet is to go to a T-Mobile store. They should replace the sim card free of charge.

I have three bars of reception but it still says emergency calls only on my Galaxy sii I live in Taree


This usually indicates that your Mobile phone provider does not have a network coverage in your area (note: in Country areas, limited network coverage is usually from Vodafone, 3 or Optus). To be on the safe side, make sure that you allow both 2G and 3G network access as 3G access is usually limited to larger cities/towns.

Check with your Mobile phone provider for both 2G and 3G coverage in your area.

Emergency calls are allowed from any Network even if your provider does not service a specific area.

Hope it helps.

Call up tmobile, do not tell them you have a rooted phone or that it was modified in anyway, otherwise they will blame it. They will be able to help you get it working by modifying / adding some settings in your phone.

Is a 2g touchscreen compatible with a first gen Iphone? Will it work if I buy the part on my 1gen phone?


Do you mean a replacement glass to put on your 1st gen iPhone? It can get a bit confusing with the 'Generation' labelling, as 2G in fact refers to 1st Generation iPhones (any prior to the 3G, hence 2G - it relates to the data connection protocol more than the hardware version).
So, with that in mind - am I correct in assuming that you have seen a 2G screen for sale?
If so then yes it will work on your 1st Gen (2G) iPhone. I haven't compared the 2G/3G screens that closely, but I do know some of the sensors are located in a slightly different position on the 3G which may in itself be an issue.
Let me know if you want me to further investigate and I'll help if I can!

Does't connect to network - search Network


Hi
It sounds like you may have a poor 3G reception in your area. Even though other O2 phones are working better they may be running on the 2G masts in your area.
Try in setting/network menu turning off 3G reception, that way the device will only look for 2G masts. Your handset will give priority to 3G masts where available and sometimes will hold onto the weakest signal making poor call quality, and or dropping connection.
Advantages to using 2G only = better standby and talk time / better reception where 3G is poor.
Disadvantages = Slower web browsing / no video calls.

WEP / WPA will only apply if you are connecting using WI FI and have nothing to do with your mobile network connection.
Hope that helps?

LG Vu CU915, poor reception


Press 277634#*# - then Modem Setting - then Network Mode - then Network Mode - then select 2G Only. This will turn off 3G and you will now be using 2G or Extended Network. Either or, I used to have the same problem, but after making that simple change I have an extra "bar" on my phone.

IPhone 3G Troubleshoot


unless the dock is made for the 3g version of the phone rather than the '2g' version it may not work and even if it recognises the phone will not 'charge' the battery this is due to the pins that received the 12 volts of many docks being disconected in the new 3g phone so you have to charge via a usb which uses other pins for this purpose
