VX 6100 in NYC area


Sep 5, 2005, 8:49 PM
Hi 6100 users,
I have few questions for you guys. I will really appreciate your suggestion and answers.
I just switched from MOTO E815 to 6100. The MoTO drained the battery like crazy. The standby time is less than a day; it died couple times while importants calls were needed.
Anyway, I have my 6100 upgraded to the latest version; however, I can still somtimes hear some static while talking to people and I found the conversation is kinda lagging.

Does that have to do with the force mode?

which force mode is better for 6100 in NYC area?

I also noticed that there is a force call option (option 4) what's that? Does that do anything to the reception?

Thanks so much for your inputs.

Under the force mode menu, there are several options like "PCS only," "CDMA only," "analog only," etc. So you can switch to one of these options & force it to use that particular type of technology. The phone will revert back to automatic after the phone is powered off & on. The last time I went to NYC was way before I had a cell phone. I doubt forcing the phone into "analog" mode would do any good in NYC. Most TDMA carriers, like Cingular/AT&T, are phasing out their analog coverage and have limited analog to one sector per cell site. I don't work for Verizon or Sprint, so I'm not familiar with their NYC coverage. However, I doubt any CDMA carrier has good analog coverage in NYC. My edumacated guess is that the force mode won't help, but you...
