Roam Control is an Android application that allows you to force roaming on your CDMA cell phone. It is targeted towards Sprint users and currently supports the Nexus 5 along with HTC, Samsung, and Motorola phones. Please understand that root is required for the app to work unless you have an older HTC phone (Hero, EVO 4G, EVO 3D).

This app is useful when you are in an area with a weak signal and your phone does not roam onto a stronger roaming signal. Putting your phone into a “roam only” mode will make your phone choose the roaming signal, improving the reliability of your phone and improving battery life.

The previous version in the market had over 12,000 downloads and a near-5 star rating!

If you previously purchased Roam Control from the Android Market, you do not need buy a new license; the app will support existing Android Market licenses as long as Google continues to support them.

Roam Control comes with a 7 day refund policy.  If you are unsatisfied for any reason, a refund can be automatically processed through the support page within 7 days of purchase.


12/06/2013 - Roam Control version 2.10.0 has been released to support the rooted Sprint Nexus. Please note that it is similar to Samsung phones in that it will only roam on the 800mhz frequency when in roam-only mode. Please see the release notes on the Download page for more details.

The new release also contains a tweak for the rooted Sprint Samsung GS4 running MJA. This modification is to make the app more stable and consistent.

11/28/2013 - Roam Control version 2.9.2 has been released to support the rooted Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 running MJA firmware. This has only been tested on the stock rom, please let us know if it doesn't work with any custom roms.

The server communication was also tweaked to resolve any connectivity issues. Again, please let us know if you encounter any issues involving the server.
