    Hi all,

    Another QQ.. Is it possible to disable the carrier alerts? I mean, the balance alerts from carrier whenever we end a call or data connection? I scanned through the settings and didn't get any option to disable it. I guess only prepaid users will be having this issue. My data connection toggles between 3g and 2g at times and i keep getting these alerts each time which is very annoying...

    Any help appreciated !!

    Force your data connection to 3G so it won't go back to 2G and you will not get those frustating alerts.

    Dial ##3282#
    Field Test will let you force your phone to use 3G.

    PS. It might not work in GDR2 as MS removed that option. Its back in GDR3 though.


    Hope it helps.

    You are not alone.. I hope there will be atleast an Update to set some different Tone for Operator messages. now I m confused whether I got message or not :)
