R against signal bars, what to do?

10 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

We have 2 off V5's on the three network, we have noticed that quite often the R appears next to the signal bars, my understanding is that we have roamed on to another network, if we try to make a call we get a warning that while roaming you could incur significant charges, Roaming is turned off in settings. So has the R appeared because we have probably lost our three signal, in network mode we have selected GSM/WCDMA (auto mode). Anybody got similar problem or any advice......... cheers

It sounds like you're more interested in making sure roaming doesn't happen at all but if you're just interested in squelching the warnings and indicators then the Gravity Box app has two settings related to roaming:

  1. "Disable roaming warnings: Disables roaming warnings when sending messages or making phone calls while roaming."
  2. "Disable roaming indicators: When disabled, R indicator will not be visible while roaming. Use with caution."

thanks for the reply, yeah, would like to know why it happens at all and stop it if possible, will take a look at gravity box, but guess that just mask's it.....................

Perhaps removing a few entries from the "Mobile Networks > Preferred Networks" list might keep the V5 from attaching to other operators?

Did notice all the entries in preferred networks and was surprised "3 UK" was not listed, might try removing some, guess it cannot hurt.....

If there aren't two entries for 3 UK at slots 0 and 1 -- WCDMA and then GSM -- then that seems like it could be your problem, no? All I know is that AT&T occupies the top two slots in my V5's list followed by many historical networks that were acquired or renamed by AT&T over the years. I haven't seen an "R" yet. I think all that info is supposed to be baked into your SIM card and you shouldn't have to be entering it manually.

FYI, the concatenated MCC/MNC for Hutchison (3) is like: 23420 - Hutchinson 3G (3) - United Kingdom

I sometimes get the R on mine , but I'm on EE which uses Orange and T-Mobile masts so I assume it's switching between the strongest of the two.

Your phone will be doing this because 3 have a roaming deal with EE for 2G coverage. It's nothing to worry about.

There is a option to roam or not, also a option to notify you or not
