sos when locked
I have PatternLock and when my phone is locked and I touch the screen to see the time- I have a red "sos" next to the signal indicator. Is this new or did I just now notice it?? And why sos??
Sorry if someone else asked this but I did try to search first.:Eyecrazy:
The red SOS means it is having trouble communicating with the tower. I don't know how it would be related to PatternLock either. It's common to get it if you're running a storm device on AT&T or any device not on it's native network.
I'll ask for some higher help just to make sure we get you an answer!
I am not able to replicate this issue.
Does it happen everytime? I read that SOS means you can only make emergency calls. It means your signal is so weak, you can only make 911 calls. AT&T mentioned also.
Go to Manage Connections > Mobile Network Options and change it from global to 1xev. See if that fixes your issue.
Let us know...
Thank you all for your responses.
I took notice to it this past week- it is on all the time when the phone is on lock with pattern lock. I still get e-mails, texts and phone calls when it is on.
I did change it from global to 1xev and it is still there. I know it wasn't always there- just don't know the exact day it showed up last week.
A few things I had to do to fix it was resending my service books and register your location. One of those almost always fixed it for me, occasionally I had to reload the OS but it was rare.
Ok- I resent my service books but how do I register my location?
options > advanced options > host routing table > BB button > register now
There you go !! :)
