Okay, I placed a message a few days ago. NOW, I was using this phone tonight and sitting still with a perfect signal. About 10 or 15 minutes into the conversation, all of a sudden, it dropped the call. I wasn'tmoving at all, sitting completely still on the sofa. Then I called the person back from the same place and stayed connected for an hour straight.

It would probably be a good idea to make sure the Foreign SID Reg, Foreign NID Reg, & AMPS Auto-Reg fields are set to "yes" as well, especially if you've noticed your phone going back and forth between home & roam. If you aren't familiar with these settings, have someone at the retail store or an agent go into the s... (continues)
