Call Failed due to FADING ??

Hi, I'm hoping someone out there can help me!

I sent my Torch 9810 in to Rogers for repair (phone was overheating). Today they sent me a new replacement, because they couldn't fix the old one....but now the new one can't send or receive calls.

I keep getting the error message "Call Failed due to Fading". Is this a network or a hardware problem?

Rogers said it was the network and tech support said it could be the hardward....any suggestions?

 

thanx

Re: Call Failed due to FADING ??

Hey myrad,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

I would suggest trying a different SIM card in the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9810 smartphone.  This type of error is usually network or SIM related.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Call Failed due to FADING ??

Hi ViciousFerret, thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I've already tried changing the SIM card and even did the battery pull. Still no change. I was able to make and receive a call when I changed the network to 2G.... I get full strength in 3G but no calls will go thru. Any other suggestions still appreciated!

 

thanx :smileyhappy:

Re: Call Failed due to FADING ??

Hey myrad,

 

Sorry for the delay in replying.

 

So if you're using EDGE/GPRS (2G) the phone calls are working perfectly.  It sounds to me you have a radio issue now but to make sure it is a radio issue, check the following:

 

1.  Are you using the most up to date device software from www.blackberry.com/update or from Rogers?

2.  If not, I suggest updating and then try to reproduce the issue.

3. If you are running the latest software then I suggest contacting Rogers to get a replacement since it is a radio issue.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Call Failed due to FADING ??

Hi ViciousFerret,

Thank you again for the suggestions. I am using the most current version 7.1 so am assuming it is a radio issue as you've suggested. I've contacted Rogers and have requested a swap. I'll keep you posted on the next one I receive.

 

thanx
