    roamed on 310-730 in Maine?

    Hi,

    I was in Norway, Maine today and according to the debug screen, my IPhone was roaming on 310-730. Does anyone know what network that is?

    Thanks

    It's Sea Mobile according to http://www.roamingzone.com/mnc/

    Were you near the coast? You may have picked up a signal from an offshore platform or rig.

    Nope it's not anywhere near the coast. When I dialed a number without the area code I thought I got a recording that identified it as US Cellular. I didn't think they had any GSM setup for roamers.

    Sea Mobile only operates in the Gulf. And USCC does not have any GSM service that I'm aware of. The only GSM carrier you could have roamed on in Maine is T-Mobile, VZW (former UNICEL), or a Canadian carrier.

    No No..Unicell is 310-890. And it couldn't of been a Canadian carrier because the country code is 310..plus I wasn't anywhere near Canada. I took a screenshot because I knew no one would believe me.

    The GSMA website seems to suggest that USCC has some kind of GSM 850 network, as provided by the screenie of the AFRCN. Sea Mobile could be a business partner providing support.

    Maybe Maine PCS?

    They don't have a web site, but they're located in Buckfield, ME, which is not far from Norway, ME.

    Edit: Never mind! That particular channel you were on (238) indicates the C-2 block, which belongs to VZW in that market.

    One more thing. I was able to roam on 310-890 (unicell/verizon) in the same location if I selected it thru manual network selection.

    How was data on either network? 310-890 worked for me in N.Conway, NH for audio streaming at 128k/sec with a few skips.

    I just realized that the ARFCN of 238 references a GSM channel, not a UMTS channel. Therefore, disregard my comments in post #7. GSM channel 238 falls into the A-block of the cellular band, which belongs to USCC.

    http://people.ku.edu/~cinema/wireless/Natl_Cell_A.html

    This is consistent with your comment in post #3, but I had no knowledge of USCC running any GSM, and I still can't explain why they would use Sea Mobile's MNC/MCC.

    Yeah the data worked alright..I could stream Pandora with minimal skips. I think I'm going to get some hate mail from AT&T about data roaming though because I fell asleep and Pandora was streaming all night.

    Probably not for the first month lol....... I tethered on the former Unicel network back in 2008 and did about 100Mb on their network. I never got a letter from AT&T, but I only did it for one month. Anymore than that and I'm sure I would of gotten a letter.

    I also have the 3gs, how were you able to select the network manually? I would like to know so that maybe when I keep getting no service could try doing that.

    According to GSM World, US Cellular had a planned launch of GSM 850 for August 1st, 2010. It must've happened!

    P.S. Yup, USCC for sure, this site confirms that 310-730 is US Cellular not Sea Mobile:
