I was in the Banana Republic store in South Coast Plaza Mall (Costa Mesa California) this weekend and attempted to place a call. The call did not go through and I got a message that said "LA 02". I dialed 611 and got "hello, hello, hello, welcome to MetroPCS". If there was no Sprint signal in that store, why didn't my phone roam on to Verizon? Is there also no Verizon signal in the Banna Republic store in South Coast Plaza? Does MetroPCS have a cell site inside of South Coast Plaza? Is there a reason that the signal from MetroPCS in stronger than Sprint and Verizon in South Coast Plaza? My PRL is 60612 and the phone is a Blackberry 8830. It is not possible for force roaming on the Blackberry. My phone is set to "automatic roaming" mode. Interesting!
