MC7094 Rel3 modems exhibit weaker connection to EDGE network as compared to Rel2 modem

1) 4:10pm/01-16-2009
2) ASAP
3) MC7094
4) WM5.0 BSP43
5) 1806233

Customer reports his MC7094/BSP43 with Rel 3 modems do not connect to the EDGE network via AT&T in the same locations where his MC7094/BSP43 with Rel 2 modems do. Additionally, the Rel 3 units do not switch over to the GPRS network automatically.
I could not find any SPR or RIL update specifically for this issue on Rel 3 modems.

To all modem: Rel2, Rel3, and

To all modem: Rel2, Rel3, and Rel4. But you must use the correct RIL for target OS. That is, WM5.0 needs WM5.0 RIL, and WM6.0 needs WM6.0 RIL.

This tells you the original

This tells you the original Rel3 modem firmware was v3.010 but it has an update firmware and you may need to update it. So find out what it is by this utility.
