Re: So can you force roam?

Dear Ninjaduck,

You tab works on my Sprint HTC TP2. I am so happy I finally get back my "roam only" option. Thanks a lot. XOXO

When I did this another (+) was added to the programs tab (making 19) I attempted to assign a program to the 19th tab however no program could be assigned to this shortcut but it created another (+) I did this a couple more times each time it created a new (+) but none of them could be assigned to a program. Now I have a total of 22 shortcuts of which only 18 of them are able to be assigned to a program. How can I remove these excess (+) or at least make them capable of assigning a program to them?

The attached picture depicts the 16th-22nd shortcut; the last 4 can not be assigned to anything.

Any Ideas? Thanks in advance!
I found a solution to the problem with the TouchFLO 3D Programs tab I was having with additional icons. The (+)s can be edited in the registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Manila\ProgramLaun cher

There you will normally see 18 numbered folders from 0 to 17. Each one of them corresponds to a slot at the Programs tab, so that 0 will be the first one and 17 the last one. My problem was there were more than 18 folders; creating additional (+)s. I'm not exactly sure why the additional shortcuts where not usable; but deleting the folders greater than 17 fixed the problem.
I assume you can add additional folders to create more shortcut tabs for programs here in the registry but I haven't tried yet. I hope this helps someone.

Sprint has bad signal where I live. Im dropping calls a lot. On automatic mode my phone will rather choose a VERY CRAPPY sprint signal over the verizon 5 bar signal that is available here at my house. I wish I could change my phone so it will automatically pick the roaming tower if the home tower is starting to get week. Sprint tryes so hard to stay connected to its home tower that its givving sprint a bad reputation for having bad reception and dropped calls in much of Hawaii. This bad reputation is not necessary because where sprint fades out verizon is there.
Its not just at home I have this problem its any where sprint signal is week. Here In the Big Island Of Hawaii Verizon has better further reaching signal then sprint in out lying areas. I get none evdo when roaming that some times causes me to change to home only because a crappy evdo signal is faster then a strong none evdo (roam) signal at my house.

This is due to your system unloading automatic mode, loading roam only mode, and then searching and locking in on the signal.

Hope this helps,

This works great. Thanks for posting it. I'd started getting quite a few dropped calls in my home and this gets me 3-4 bars instead of 0-2 bars.

Re: So can you force roam?

Be advised that excessive roaming (voice calls, text, and/or data) can and will result in termination of your line by Sprint. The exact limits and enforcement seem to vary, so check your Sprint TOS... but I recall that 80% roaming (minutes) will trip red flags.

So if you do it, do it in moderation. It may also be worth giving CS a call to see what the current company line is.

I was worried about this for a while... ive done excessive roaming, over 80%, almost every month for over a year... during that time I spent more than 80% of my time somewhere there was no sprint coverage @ all. the other 20% while I was home, in my sprint coverage area id force roam. sprint never said anything about roaming.
im on sero 500 fair & flex plan.

Re: So can you force roam?

I suppose experience is the best teacher, but believe me when I tell you that I will not be pushing the envelope with this on my SERO plan. You sir, have balls.
