Lightbulb [Utility] Easily switch to roaming

Here is an utility to easily switch to Roaming without having to go through all the phone settings or registry hacks.

Original link for Touch Pro: Program to switch roaming mode <-- PLEASE THANK THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR!!

The above did not work correctly with the Touch Pro 2, so I modified it with the author's permission to make it work with our phones, and created a cab for easy installation / uninstall. Hope it helps!

Re: [Utility] Easily switch to roaming

Nothing required, other than .NET 2.0, which is included already in most roms.

EDIT: Does not seem to work with the stock rom (Sprint only?). For people having issues, what error message are you getting?

Re: [Utility] Easily switch to roaming

Great work. It looks really nice, but one question for you.

Doesn't pretty much every carrier have free nation wide roaming now? If so, why don't you just leave it on automatic all the time instead of switching?

if you're in a weak signal area your phone will continue to switch back and forth between your home signal and your roaming signal. This will kill the battery faster then anything else. putting it on roaming only will save your battery life.
