Force roaming

This cab works on the Treo Pro to add the option to "roam only" like the 800w has. If you're like me and have a weak signal at work, this will help save your battery from the phone "hunting" back and forth from Sprint to roaming for 8 hours..

This was written for the Touch Pro but works on the Treo Pro as well. Install the cab, wait a minute then reset. Go to Settings/Phone/Service/Roaming/Get Settings and make your selection.

Smile Re: Force roaming

Wow! This makes my Treo Pro function just like the 755P on Sprint. I live in a rural area with just 1 bar of Sprint service and 4 bars of Verison and now I can actualy get service. Highly recomended! Thanks.

does it always say 1x?? cuz mines does tghat if the data usage has been dormant for a while. but if does stay on...check ur roaming settings..

Re: Force roaming

EVDO roaming is determined by the carriers roaming agreements. So more then likely Sprint and Verizon agreed that Sprint customers would not have EVDO access in that area. I have never seen EVDO while either forcing roaming or roaming on any of my phones here in the southwest.

im sure they have EV coverage in OKC. and surrounding areas. if a hard reset didnt fix it, and adjusting the roaming settings didnt either, u mite have to go to a repair ctr(but thats a LAST resort, sumtimes they make the situation worse)

yes every carrier has 3g here in okc, i'm just saying on my sprint phone on the sprint network I cannot get a good enough signal to use data in my house, when i force the palm pro to roam on verizon well my 1x signal is full service and i can use data but its just so slow i was wondering if thats the normal or if sprint should have roaming 3g capability ????
