I ve a nokia 2730 classic model ...m using airtel service... when i set umts mode there is no network coverage

This probable if your Network does not have 3G/UMTS coverage in that specific area.

I would set your phone so that it will automatically select 2G or 3G network services (e.g. often referred to as Dual-mode) so that if 3G/UMTS is available and has the best coverage/signal, it will automatically be selected. Setting UMTS coverage only would be very restrictive in many area as the signal is usually weaker (especially in Buildings).

Hope it helps!

How to activate grps in touch mobile nokia c300

1 Remove the back cover of your Nokia phone, and then pull the battery out of your phone while it is turned on.

Note: If you experience network glitches, coverage issues, or crackling during a call, it is necessary to reset your phone to reconnect with the cell towers in your local area (which connect to GPRS).
2 Wait a good amount of time for a refresh (approximately 30 seconds), and then put the battery and back cover back on the device.
3 Hold down the red end or power button on the phone to turn it back on.
4 Very that a GPRS icon or text appears in the top indicator bar to make sure you have reconnected to the network and activated GPRS.
Change Network Bands to Activate GPRS
1 Access the phone's settings from the phone's main menu.

Note: In countries outside North America, you typically need to use the 900-MHz/1800-MHz frequency to get a GPRS signal from one of the mobile providers.
2 Move through the menu to locate the network or network setup icon. This might be two clicks depending on your phone model (network > setup).
3 Click on "band" or "phone frequency" to open the menu with the band option.
4 Select the GPRS frequency option, for example, 850/1900, 900/1800 or "automatic" to have the phone choose the strongest band signal for you.
5 Press and hold down the power button to turn off the phone, and then turn it back on to re-establish the connection to the new band if you have connection issues.
Choose a Manual Network Connection to Turn On GPRS
1 Access the main menu on the phone to get to the settings menu.
2 Click the selection for "phone," and then usually there is a follow-up option to select "Operator selection" (based on your model of phone).
3 Select "Manual" to pick a new network to connect to (for international or roaming connections).

Note: Select "Automatic" if you are having connection problems; this will automatically connect to the GPRS connection of your cell phone provider.
4 Verify that your Nokia phone establishes a connection with a network and that the phone works as expected.

Go to menu -> settings -> network settings. Go to select network and set to 'automatic'. Then go to network mode and set to 'automatic'. If this doesnt work you may have to contact your mobile operator.

MY Nokia 6610i keeps telling to select network especially if i put it in my pocket.What is the problem?How do i solve it?

i think your phone's network connection is in manual. You should Press Menu, and select Settings, Phone settings and Network selection. Select
Automatic and the phone automatically selects one of the cellular networks
available in your area.

My sony-ericsson z550i display says no network and no coverage area.

go to settings-->phone-->network, try selecting the manual network option, if its able to find a network, you can request register on it, once back to main screen select "automatic" in network so you don't have to search your provider network everytime you loose signals.

Network disappearing

try changin the network search to manual and manually select the network you are on right now..
if 3G network is availavle, do not choose that.. choose any 2G or 2.5G network for your service provider that wud be available..

if that doesnt work, try to delete all the cookies and stuff from the phone, delete all network settings you got on ur handset, and ask your service provider for the settings again..
