    I just unlocked a torch 9800 for my youngest with an unlock code provided by crackberry unlock service. The phone was originally on rogers but my son is with fido. The unlock went well but the phone is constantly roaming. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hmm, even if you restart the device, same thing? Maybe there is a 'network' setting of sorts that needs to be amended. I hope someone will come along shortly to assist...

    Yeah I restarted a few times. Not sure why it's doing that. Anyone else?

    I wonder if adding APN settings for Fido to the device would work? I hope someone else can advise if that would help...

    I was going to suggest that it might be a frequency issue, but according to Wikipedia Rogers and Fido customers share each others network towers and according to Rogers, the 9800 supports both the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz frequencies, so you should be good to go.

    Perhaps its best if you call customer support.

    Check out this thread over at the Fido forum. Seems to be a common issue, but you can probably call customer care just to be on the safe side, you don't want to end up with a crazy phone bill.

    Or change it to "Home Only" for network selection.

    The best thing to do is to call the network themselves. The knowledge around here is more specialised within unlocking itself as opposed to network usage. They'll really be the best people to help.
