Galaxy Nexus Roaming - Possible Problem
Hi All,

I live in Kansas where in a lot of places service can be poor or not existent. While visiting my family and my girlfriends family over Christmas, who live in two different areas in Southeast Kansas, where both phone(making calls) and 4g/3g/1x data signal do not exist from Verizon. US Cellular is the main carrier for service in both areas with great coverage and I noticed that my new galaxy nexus did not automatically connect to the US Cellular network in either location for roaming. I was left with no connectivity at all for the entire weekend . I also have three LG Envy 3's that will not roam either.

My question is there a reason why my galaxy nexus did not automatically connect to the US Cellular network to roam?

Also is there a way to force my phone to connect to US Cellular when I am in these dead zones for Verizon?

Thanks in advance?

As a side note I have the Data Roaming checked in the Mobile Network Settings and I have the System Select set to Automatic.

I was also an Alltel customer that was converted to Verizon, but when I got my Motorola Droid in December 2009 we were required to change our family plan to the Verizon Wireless 700 minute plan.

PRL on my Galaxy Nexus is 15098.

PRL on the three LG Envy 3's is 52642. These three phones are all up to the latest version using the *228.
