Data Roaming

i was abroad in India recently - and subscribed to a BB Roaming package from Singtel - who specified that I use only Airtel network while in India. So i set the Q5 to Airtel network MANUALLY.  However each time the signal was weak, the Q5 went off the network, stopped receiving messages. THere was no notification.  Worse still, it never re-connected back to the Airtel network even when the signal improved. 

This meant no incoming messages for hours, until such time I noticed it. Thereaffter I had to search all over again for networks, and select Airtel each time  (in contrast a Samsung phone i was carrying notified each time i lost the network, and reconnected when the signal was better)

Is the Q5 not capable of doing this ?
