How to use?
Network Selection – You can select your network automatically or manually.
When the selection is set to automatic, the handset will register itself with the one of the partner operator’s network.
Or, a roamer may select the desired network manually in case a mobile handset fails to find the network automatically or there is need to use other operator’s service due to lower tariffs or better coverage. To do so, one should go to the Menu option of the phone – network selection – manual – and choose the desired network from the list.
