Palm Pre on Fido?

I recently purchased a Palm Pre 2, unlocked on Rogers.

 

I placed my Fido Simcard in and everything seemed to work fine.

Including making calls/ sending+ reciving texts.

 

However, it constantly says R for 'Roaming" where the 3G should be.

 

What is the APN that fixes this glitch? Thanks.

there is no fix, you ARE roaming, all fido subscribers are roaming on the Rogers network. You just need to ignore it.

Ok. I get that I'm roaming on Rogers network.

 

However you do realize that when the phone is romaing, reglardless if you are roaming on the Rogers network or not...

the battery life is half the amount that it should be after a few hours.

put the network scan to manual so the phone will stop trying to scan looking for the non-existant home network
