    Hi. I'm new to the 8830. My BB goes in and out of 1x signal, such that I often cannot receive or send emails. Is this normal? It seems to do this pretty frequently, staying in the 1x signal strength for long periods of time. I tired to get my office IT people to help, but I don't think they know. I have asked around and none of my colleagues seem to be experiencing the same problem. Thoughts? Suggestions?

    dial *228 and option 2 (i believe) to update your roaming list. try that and see.

    have you always had 1x signal?

    Thanks all! I updated my roaming list per Salimar's suggestion. We'll see how that works out. I got the BB about 3 weeks ago, it belongs to my work; I'm testing it out to see if I want to buy my own (I'd like to have one device, instead of a work device + personal cell phone). Any thoughts on the 8830 versus the Curve? I like the size of the Pearl but can't handle the lack of full keyboard.

    Thanks again!
