Can This Phone Force Towers?


Mar 11, 2005, 11:12 AM


I just picked up my first cell phone, and so far I'm enjoying myself!

However, today I decided to call my home and leave myself a message so that I could see how well my voice comes through the phone and goes across the network. Considering there's plenty of coverage in my area, I didn't bother to check and see if I was roaming. Well I was, and I logged a 22 second roam call. Crying or Very sad

Not a big deal. But I was just curious as to if anyone has figured out how to force towers with the 5550. From now on I'll be more careful, but it would be nice to be able to keep it from roaming, period.

I've looked through the manual diligently, but with no luck. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

try dialing *228, then press send. This should do a PRL update to your phone and force it on to your networks towers. The process takes about a minute.
