won't roam on Verizon from Spring?

by MOKLA40    Oct 25, 2011, 3:47 AM

Had this phone now for about 3 weeks- coming off HTC Evo Shift. Wanted bigger screen, etc.

I've noticed though, that this phone doesn't seem to want to roam onto Verizon's network from Sprint. I dive an area in LA called "Beverly Glen" (for those of you who aren't familiar) 2x/day back and forth from work. Sprint's coverage in the middle of the canyon there is particularly bad and on my HTC Shift, the little roaming triangle would come up and I'd be able to talk on Verizon's network for that portion of the Canyon where Sprint had little to no coverage.

Same route with this phone and all I get are "no bars- I don't get "no service" so I think the phone is staying locked onto a very weak (probably echoing) Sprint Signal but it never seems to hear the Verizon signal at all.

And yes, I have Mobile Networks set to "any CDMA", CDMA roaming set to "Domestic Call and Data", and the Domestic Roaming Guards are off for both voice and data.

Anyone else notice this??
