    switching towers and call quality

    is there anyway to reprogram wireless phones to automatically choose the best reception available? If you are on ATT TDMA and have a roamning agreement with Cingular TDMA, why should you have wait until there is no glimmer of ATT left before switching to Cingular TDMA? SAme thing with a gait phone, why do you have to wait for ATT GSM to be nowhere in sight before swithcing to ATT TDMA? Cost probably, I would be willing to pay more per minute in order to increase call quality.

    Fortunatly with the Siemens s46 multi-band phone you CAN manually switch between TDMA & GSM mode.

    hmmm, that's interesting...I wonder if the Noka 6340 will be similar. I still wish that we would have two huge companies: ATT/Cingular/VoiceStream and Verizon/USCelluar/Sprint. Then, the phone could just choose the strongest signle without havign to worry about roaming while on the same (basic) standard GSM/TDMA or CDMA
