I work in an area where a roaming carrier's signal predominates. I had a sprint 700p and was able to change a preference to "allow roaming only" but was unable to receive text messages while roaming on sprint (they could not fix this despite multiple tech support calls)

now I am with verizon and my signal quality for voice is less optimal than if roaming on us cellular but the only way to adjust the select band is to "home" or "automatic" which I assume allows roaming but does not force roaming and the phone tries to stay on the verizon network despite how poor the signal is.

Does anyone know if and how one could force roaming on the verizon version of the 700p
