    Default UK z10 roaming in USA

    Anyone had any issues?

    I'm on orange UK and since arriving in the states I can't connect to any network. Just says emergency calls only.

    Is the UK z10 compatible?

    I read where people had problems with the UK z10 working in the states why I made sure mine came from Canada

    Can anyone confirm this? Would it be a temporary thing?

    My UK 9900 worked a treat wherever in th world I took it. It's hardly a phone for people that want to get things done if I can't use it on my travels.

    Never had problems with mine -... but...

    as far as I know - STL100-1,2,3 have the same frequency support for 2G - and when roaming you don't want to roam data anyway...

    Make sure you have configured your phone to 2G net - and NOT 3G/4G only....

    also - make sure you connect to a network in US where your SIM carrier have a roaming agreement with... It can be your Z10 (if set on Auto) will try to connect to a carrier which your "home provider" don't have agreements with.. by going to mobile Network Setup - setting to manual - and choosing a different provider - Might help you..

    I have tried switching it to just 2g and 3g. There isn't an option to connect only by 2g.

    I have tried manual scan for network and as far as I know T-Mobile is oranges roaming partner. But when I select it, it just says emergency calls only.

    Still no joy

    Does your home network provide roaming in your contract?

    I know that some require special subscription - or to "enable" roaming on their subscription...

    Perhaps a call to Orange can fix your problem

    I'll have to give that a try I guess. Starting to regret moving from Vodafone

    You can check online if your orange account has roaming enabled, as far as I remember you have to set it up it doesn't automatically get set up. I've never had problems with blackberries on orange working in USA ( not tried z10 yet) be interested to know solution though before I go to states later in year.
