    Writing this from my pre. Sorry for not including specific details.

    I have searched and searched, and cannot find an answer to this problem, or a solution.

    I used the roam only hack... The one that's scripted...

    There are a few threads around here with the ssh root command,
    One of them says out dated @ the top of the thread.

    I've used that one, and the more recent one.

    They install fine. But the phone will not roam. Period. I know there is verizon service here. I used to have them. My sprint katana roamed fine on verizon.

    Not this stupid phone. What is the deal? ????

    I use the WebOS Quick Install version and it works great. I am not sure what particular patch that relies on, but maybe you can remove your patch manually and try that one?

    oh... and Update Preferred Roaming List (PRL) in the phone preferences card *before* turning on the Roam only feature and make sure Data Roaming is "enabled".

    I have web os quick install. Used it last night to install my notification and file coaster.

    Can you link me to this roam only app? I have limited time / access to a computer,
    And frankly pre central is horribly un organized.

    it's not an app, it's a tweak. in webOS Quick Install, click on "Tools" then "Tweaks" and simply check the boxes of the tweaks you would like. each time you apply a tweak, the phones UI will reset. (it will look like it's rebooting, but will take much less time)

    Roam Only Hack
    actually, I'm not sure.. prior to using the tweak in web os quick install.. this is the code I used to install and un install the hack. however, i will undo the tweak i did in web os quick install.. and use the one you just linked me to above... and see if i makes a difference. update, no that does not work.. going to use web os doctor. restore the phone entirely, to make sure all hacks are gone entirely... and try again.. each one at a time.. just to be safe.
