    Network Mode N75

    is there a way to choose the network mode on an ATT branded Nokia n75?

    or do i need to debrand? (which i cant figure out lol)

    Thanks!

    fwiw...

    debranding was a breeze. i was completely unfamiliar with the two pieces of sw needed but had no trouble getting it done. if you have a specific question i'm sure it can be easily answered.

    without retyping, I think this is the simplest to follow and what I used when I did mine.

    I do believe that when I started NSS, I had to get to the correct page/screen for the product code. It didn't default to that screen on startup. Otherwise it's very straightforward.

    Assuming your phone is unlocked, right?

    Not unlocked but i emailed att and am waiting for a response. Is there a way to do it without getting it from them? Not trying to break forum unlocking rules. I just wanted to know if its possible.

    yes its possible. once you get unlock code from ATT, then you are ready to debrand. pretty easy.

    yes ATT removed the network select feature.

    BTW, the network select has come in handy for me. I have had to switch from UMTS to GSM a few times this week because of "packet data" errors. When I am on GSM they never happen, but when on "dual mode" I have had some trouble at times with the network. I prefer the UMTS mode, but when it continues to give me a "packet data error, packet data not available" error than I use what is available.

    network selection being handy is an understatement. sometimes during rush hour, UMTS has capacity issues and making calls is impossible with busy signals. force to gsm, calls work fine. or if your on the edge of coverage and it switches back and forth. i can think of countless, real world examples where having this option is actually a necessity. its hard to beleive ATT thinks users would need this function, and actually DELIBERATELY remove it. why not just leave it in the menu? they must have serious faith in their network, and its not even close to good enough to have this removed. oh the humanity.
