I just did the 228 thing,now give me step by step into my option for network settings,because when i do what u say i have no option for network tecnology.
I believe you can disregard the network settings. The 8530 is not a global device, therefore it will not have the Global option for accessing GSM networks overseas. For example, on my Bold 9650, I can change the network technology and connect to GSM networks overseas, provided I use my Sim card and set it up in advance of travelling. It has been noted on those global devices that while in the US, if you set your phone to 1XEV instead of global, it will keep your device from dropping calls. Sorry I did not notice which device you had. I am hoping the *228 fixed your problem.
