[Q] Focus + network type changing
Currently experiencing "hiccup" in internet/data experience with my focus. If phone is not in 3G+ mode, i get no data.
Can someone confirm my theory;
Purchased Samsung Focus from rogers, thus rogers network profile (preset network setting for data usage such as MMS or internet).
Unlocked and stuck in bell SIM. can send/recieve calls, and txts, use data (internet, marketplace, weather updates, etc) if phone is in 3G+ mode (seen by tapping near top of screen). Can not use MMS
1)Focus was initially programmed to work on Rogers network.
2)Focus/Rogers, have a GPRS & EDGE capability
Focus is programmed to use 3G radio for data (which is more widely accessible, & consumes less power), until detects 3G+/HSPA network and switch to that HSPA radio.
Since bell does not have a GPRS or EGDE network, when phone tries to receive data through 3G radio, it get nothing because no GPRS or EGDE network.
Is this possible, can phones change network they're using?
Since Bell has 3G+ network,and they offer LG quantum. Could LG quantum be initially programmed to only use 3G+/HSPA, therefore anytime data is requested it activates the 3G+ radio.
If this is true of the LG quantum, could this be programmed into the Focus as well.
Thus i ask the community is this possible and how to implement solution?????
I know the easiest solution would be to change to Rogers, however, Canadian provider fees are ridiculous (i'd be incurring early cancellation fee + a new restrictive costly plan from rogers) and there are others which don't have a choice but to use bell, and should have the freedom to choose a device of there choice with a little work.
