Wi-Fi Roaming Threshold configuration setting


This setting determines how often the Wi-Fi® transceiver scans for nearby wireless access points and roams to one of them if the signal quality is better than the signal of the current access point.

Default value

The default value is Auto. A BlackBerry® device selects roaming thresholds automatically.


When you configure this setting to Low, a BlackBerry device roams only when signal quality is very low.

When you configure this setting to Medium, a BlackBerry device roams when the signal quality is medium to low.

When you configure this setting to High, a BlackBerry device roams aggressively to access points with better signal strength.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.1
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP3
