I suspect that it is set for overseas travel and if that is the case it may be very expensive to make calls
I would take it to the service provider shop and have the assistant check it out and take it of roaming
Thousands of people around the world are using unlocked blackberry due to these several reasons,if you are frequent traveler or just cant bear the outrageous costs of expensive contracts then you should seek unlocking your blackberry...
Eliminate Roaming Fees- Roaming charges can drastically increase your base mobile phone bill every month. These roaming charges are based on either your current cell phone contract or the limits of service areas that your provider offers. Unlocking your mobile phone can eliminate roaming fees by allowing you to change the SIM to lower priced networks or local networks when traveling
Increase Resale Value- When you decide to upgrade to a new phone, it also time to sell your old one. Unlocked mobile phones are easier to sell up to 300% more valuable than a locked one because they are compatible with more networks, which means there will be more potential buyers for your phone.
Use Any SIM on Any GSM Network- With an unlocked mobile phone you can change carriers without buying a new phone. This means you can take advantage of the best service package for your current needs. Then if your needs change, you can change providers.
Save with Local Rates - An unlocked mobile phone allows you to take advantage of cheaper rates from rival networks as well as attain an ability to use local service providers while abroad. This will drastically cut down on your tariffs for text messaging and calls home.
Global Connections - Unlocking your phone may also enable dual, tri or even quad band functionality on your mobile handset. This means that your cell phone will be usable in even more countries around the globe as well as being a more valuable resale item. There is no longer any reason to own more than one cell phone handset.
Dual SIM Adaptors- When your phone is unlocked, there is the possibility of applying a dual SIM adapter, which allows your to have two SIM cards in the same handset. This makes your cell phone a much more versatile tool, for example you can separate work and leisure calls. Switching SIM cards can become as easy as turning your cell phone off and on again. You are in complete control of your mobile phone!
Expanded Service Area- Being free of any provider restrictions allows you to increase your areas of service without roaming charges.
Permanent Blackberry Unlocking- Your blackberry never gets relocked and is unlocked forever.
No Warranty Void Risk- Absolutely no risk of damaging your phone and warranty also doesn't get void.
Flexibility to use 3G and Data Settings- Use all Data and 3G settings as given by your Network provider on your unlocked blackberry
I believe this choice is to determine where most of calls/texts your will be made to. Choosing Home will designate your home area code as your most frequently called area (no roaming charges) while Travel will probably allow you to choose a different area code as your most frequently called area. When you call out of your chosen area code roaming charges apply. Example, if your current phone area code is 123 and you move to area code 321 you may want to change your Home or Travel designation depending on where most of calls are made to since you can't actually change your phone number.
As for your other question, you don't need wi-fi to text. It's like making a phone call, you simply choose message instead of dialing a number. Phone calls cost 1 unit, while text messages cost .30 units. (Units are the dollars you spend to buy minutes divided by the total number of minutes you receive) Hope that helps.
Just go to your phone's settings, and turn off roaming or deselect the roaming check box. The actual location of "roaming" will vary depending on the type of phone you use. It could be under device, call, or even long distance settings. If you still can't find it, check with the phone manufacturer or call your cell phone company for assistance.
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.
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.
You need to contact your cell phone provider to enable roaming to the country you wish to travel and obtain connection settings.
Their company may be establish in the country you are travelling to or may have partner phone company in that country.
normally this error would cause if your in Analog Roaming area, i also have seen this error, when one travels through a Analog Roaming area, and Data portion of cell phone will get stuck with Analog Roaming Tower, when ur back with in Digital Roam Area this should go away, if not call your service provider and have them reset your data Signal from Analog Tower.
