Re: symbol mc70

If you are in an area outside your carriers main network, the "freezing" could be caused by a poor data hand off from the carrier to their affiliate network in the local area. Where this can be even more complicated if the carriers network has been upgraded (i.e. EvDO or GPRS) and the affliate has not (1x or GSM).

There are also a number of other reasons the device can appear to "freeze", but without the details, it's hard to pinpoint. Regardless, it shouldn't behave like this. If the device can be used with no problems in other areas, it's most likely the way the modem is interacting with the network, and should be reported to the technical support team handling these issues with the carrier (if you try to contact the carrier on your own, prepare to be put in an endless queue with no updates).

Also, MOT is continually updating the software and firmware of these devices. I DO NOT recommend someone try to update the device on their own. The latest releases may not be compatible with everything your company is running on the device. You may end up with a device that can better connect, but you can't access anything you need. I would recommend that you check with your local technical support folks and make sure your on the latest corp "APPROVED" releases.

Good Luck.

Make that 81! There are days when the divice works like a dream. Then most of the time I just want to chuck the damned Symbol out of a moving van! I am tired of having to warm boot it every ten minutes because "the operation failed". The modem constantly locks up, and there is nothing you can do to debug it except warm boot it and wait ten minutes.

The imager or scanner on my MC70 will not scan a bar code.

Do you have any software on the MC70 to use the scanner. You can use Datawedge if your software does not integrate into the device directly.

You can download the software from
