    Confirmed UMA down in California, restoration up to 10/22??

    Advertisement



    A CrackBerry.com member just sent this in, and I figured it worthy of a post. As predicted by David Boyd in his Out of the Box Review of the new BlackBerry 8320, it looks like it's going to take some time for T-Mobile to get up to speed with the capabilities of this new device:
    I purchased a BB 8320 from TMO Saturday. After UMA service worked for 3 days, yesterday a friend and I both only had lowercase uma on the device all day. After calling TMO, then RIM, then TMO again, I was told that TMO has a UMA system issue for the entire state of California, and the expected date for full service restoration is October 22, almost a full month away. Level 2 support says that this only affects the Curve, no other TMO UMA devices.
    I can't find any other reference to this online, but I think it's ridiculous that TMO is advertising this device as having UMA support on their 'exclusive' Hotspot @ Home service and now it's broken for one of the largest states.
    Figured I'd pass it along.

    It's working fine here in NorCal. I just got my BB 8320 from T-Mobile yesterday, and it's worked since I set it up last night. From the posts I'm reading out there, it looks like a SoCal problem, not a statewide thing.

    Update:I am getting the UMA cutting out every so often, but after 30 or 40 seconds it reconnects. I notice too when it does that the EDGE turns to an edge, then back EDGE when UMA comes back up.

    I would be calling TMO....and demanding that they NOT charge me for anything (other than voice data) until they fix their issues. Additionally- reverse any extra charges if you upgraded to the phone from another. They never should have allowed an upgrade or a release until they were ready for it. I would be requesting ANY charges related to the broken aspects be refunded, and then add some extra percs too!
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Maybe it has something to do with your ISP too. I'm on Comcast (formerly Adelphia here) up here in Mendocino County in Northwestern California, just an idea.

    Edit-Like I said, other than dropping UMA every once in a while, mine is working great, hopefully it won't change..knock on wood

    I haven't even SEEN UMA (as opposed to uma) on my curve until about 15 min ago, but its working flawlessly now! Calls sound great, data on RIM software and thirdparty apps working perfectly!

    Using an Apple Airport Express in Los Angeles with my beautiful gold(really?) curve.

    Mine has been working since yesterday. Is anyone else still having issues keeping their "UMA" ?

    Nope, I was having it drop out then back in ever once in a while, but it's working 100% now, I think they finally got it fixed!

    I am in Topanga and have had not luck with the Curve UMA and when I tried to switch back to the Nokia 6086 I got nowhere there either. Very frustrating. The Nokia had been working flawlessly, then I decided to upgrade so I wouldn't have to switch out the SIM every morning and night, and now here I am unable to make any calls in the house now. I get sporadic data via UMA, but every time I try to make a call it cuts out.

    It sounds like SoCal is still having problems, that stinks Everything is fine up here in Redwood Valley (115 miles north of San Francisco or 8 miles north of Ukiah) in Mendocino County, NorCal.
