    This has become really annoying. During calls, my bold always goes into gsm...

    Its happend with every OS ive had, and im currently running .93. This even happend with .167.

    I have pretty execelent signal in my town, but it still goes into gsm, and as soon as the call is over it goes to 3g.

    Anyone else have this problem or a fix for this?

    What about when you try and use data, does it fallback to GSM/Edge?

    I know At&t will begin implementing this soon. But it isn't suppose to affect Bold and iPhone users
    AT&T continues to boast of “the nation’s fastest 3G network” while many customers in various regions across the country seem to think differently. Dropped calls, outages, network congestion and general reliability issues continue to plague the carrier’s 3G network but today we have some good news for those of you currently with AT&T. According to one of our ninjas, AT&T is set to begin a rolling launch of its Network Settings (N-SET) Solution across all networks in the US. The roll out will begin this month. N-SET will balance traffic between the carrier’s 2G and 3G networks, thus reducing the load borne by its 3G network. Essentially, a customer who primarily uses voice services will connect via 2G even if 3G is supported by his or her handset. If and when said customer begins to actively use data services, the network will bounce him or her over to 3G. BlackBerry Bold and iPhone 3G users will not be affected by the change. Assuming all goes according to plan, N-SET stands to have a pretty immediate impact on network performance by freeing up 3G bandwidth for heavier data users. Whether or not it will be enough to impact urban and populated areas — especially once the new iPhone is released this Summer — remains to be seen.

    I actually dont have data, I've been using my bold on wifi.

    So i really wouldnt be able to answer that.

    however, I live in a smaller town in texas ...where I would think this change would happen in a long time haha. We dont exactly get the "new" stuff when it comes out.


    I've yet to find a fix for this online, and the att reps dont know much about my problem.

    Try leaving your phone on 3G only and see what happens

    It will affect only those on PPU data plans. Anyone with an actual data plan will not be affected as they are actually paying for access to the 3G network.
