Blackberry bold 9780-select network manually


When you turn on the phone, it automatically selects a network within range.

In certain circumstances, it might be useful to select a network manually, for example when you are abroad where different networks are available (depending on which operators Orange or T-Mobile have roaming agreements with).

Follow these instructions to select a network manually on your BlackBerry Bold 9780.

  1. Find Mobile Network
    Press the Menu key twice
    Press Options
    Press Networks and Connections
    Press Mobile Network

  2. Activate manual network selection
    Press Network Selection Mode
    Press Manual
    If manual network selection is activated:
    Press Scan for Available Networks

  3. Select a network
    The phone now searches for networks within range and after a few seconds, a list of options is displayed
    Press the required network
    After a moment the display shows whether you have access to the selected network. If the display shows that you do not have access to the selected network, it is because Orange or T-Mobile do not have a roaming agreement with the network operator

  4. Save and exit
    Press OK
    Press Disconnect
    Press the Return key to return to standby mode
