Question about Symbol MC70

2 Answers

Do you still work for Comcast?

Gees it seems as though there are tons of issues with the MC70; are you still having the same issues with the device? I work for a company that provides outside support for handheld mobile computers. Would you know whom I could speak with in regards to providing repair and maintenance support for these devices at Comcast or at your current place of employment? You can contact me at

    This is not TY and I did get your email. Thanks for responding so quickly. I just wanted to find out how Comcast handles the repairs on their Symbol units. I noticed quite a few people indicating they were having issues with the unit freezing up and just wondered if the company I work for could be a possible solution. Does comcast handle repairs in house on the Symbol units? The company I work for is called TechQuidation and we are located in Marietta,GA.

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

MC70 having roaming issues

If you're just speaking to the MC70, there is a setting on the CDMA (Sprint, Verizon), but I don't know if this works on the GSM version.

1) Got to: Start > phone
2) Dial ##DEBUG (##33284)
3) Select Talk
4) Select System
5) Select Details.

The rest should be clear.

My symbol MC70 does not come on after going into suspend mode. I have to do a cold boot.

If you're sure there is not a system setting that could be the cause, just try a power cycle - hold the power button for a couple seconds (not long enough to cold boot), then hit it again to turn it on.

You may also want to check your internal and external battery life to see if the device is shutting down to conserve power.

One other strange thing we've found with some devices (in particular, if you're having trouble turning the device on) we've found that just removing the battery and reinserting, or swapping it with another, can sometimes, on rare occasion, resolve some power issues.

I believe there was a known issue with one of the BSP releases (3.9?), so this may be the cause. Contact MOT to determine if the one you have could have been affected and ask them to fix it. You can try to upgade the BSP on your own, but it can be a hassle.

Good luck

On my PDA MC70 it is showing WI-FI "unavailable"

This can get kind of complicated, and your wireless carrier may block this depending on the data plan. It's also different for the MC7095 (CDMA) and MC7094 (GSM/GPRS) models. You may also want to see if your device BSP release is up-to-date.

Here is some basic info for the MC7095 (Sprint):

Device was not connected to network to start.
Went to Start, Programs, Internet Sharing, tapped Connect, showed Status: Check USB connection. Internet Sharing drivers were installed on laptop computer, then device displayed Internet Sharing Status "Connected". We were able to browse the web on the laptop computer. Closed out of Internet Sharing (tap X on upper right hand corner). On device, tapped Start, Internet Explorer, attempted to browse to a webpage. Able to browse on both laptop computer and MC7095 device.

Note: Attempted to Disconnect the Internet Sharing session, unable to. The device does not appear to respond to the "Disconnect" option on bottom left of screen. When tapping "Disconnect" the option light up as if being tapped however the device itself shows no other changes and Status still displays :Connected.
***FYI*** In testing with a different MC7095 (BSP33) we experienced the same issues with not being able to "Disconnect" the Internet Sharing session.

Have you tried the classic "hard boot"?

Do you have a WAN or LAN radio configuration?
Has the device worked for you in the past ... and no will not?

Until you answer my questions and I get back to you you might try pulling the battery out for 10 min or so... see if it reboots when you reinstall it

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.
