Select a public system
When you take your phone outside its home system, the phone is said to be roaming. The
phone can search for home-type systems (that is, systems of the same type as your home
system). Or, the phone can search for nonhome-type systems.
Your service provider programs a list of preferred systems into your phone. These are systems
with which your service provider has roaming agreements. Your phone looks for these systems
when you are roaming.
Note: The options described here may not be available for your phone. Contact your
service provider for information.
From the menus, select Settings > Network services > Public system selection.
Select one of the following options:
Any system—When service is not available in your home system, the phone searches
for a preferred system of either type and then searches for a home-type system. Then it
searches for a nonhome-type system. The search continues until your phone finds a
system that can be used.
Home type—When service is not available in your home system, the phone searches for
a home-type system first. However, if a nonhome-type system is found, your phone will
use that system.
Nonhome type—The phone searches for a nonhome-type system only. The home-type
system is not used.
Home only—The phone uses only its home system. It will not roam.
