Post Technical Question on phone
Quote:
# Carrier: T-Mobile
# Modes: GSM 850 / GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900
# Weight: 4.70 oz
# Dimensions: 4.30" x 2.70" x 0.80"
# Form Factor: Bar; Internal Antenna


I have had trouble getting a signal inside my work.
Some people get a great signal fine. I have had two
two seperate companies and still having the problem.

I think of getting a Rim Blackberry 8700g which has
quad-band ? Does this search for signal on all four
bands ? Or do you have to just pick one and stick with it?
The figures above are the stats on this phone.

If anyone can help me with this i would really appreciate it.

I don't know anything about that phone in particular, but I do know there are several "antenna" type deals you can stick onto your phones battery that are supposed to help the signal strength.

Here's an example of one;

they're only like $5 so even if it's a bust, it's not a very big gamble.

Quad band means it's a "world" phone. We use different frequency bands in the US then they do in Europe. 2 of the bands are US, two are Europe. The phone will look for a signal on all 4 bands, but obviously only can find anything on two.
