    A few days back I purchased a Motorola V600 for myself and two V400s
    for my wife and daughter. I like the plan and the features included
    with the phone however I am having problems with the reception of the
    v600. It seems that both the v400s switch to Cingular Extended much
    quicker than the v600 there by improving the quality of the call. Is
    there a way to set the v600 to use Cingular extended faster in
    marginal areas?

    I am about to cancel my Cingular contract becuase my phone is
    effectively unusable. At home I have given up on the v600 and resort
    to the v400 for calls.

    Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Re: V600 Reception

    Sounds like you have a bad v600. Take it back and get a replacement. We
    have one of each and they both get the same excellent reception.

    My experience with my users and the V600 is that when they work, they
    work GREAT. However if the handset is going to have a problem, it's
    never a small one. Replacing the handset for these users has always
    done the trick. It's really an all-or-nothing handset.

    That is plan B, I took the advise to exchange the v600 and I have
    noticed a marked difference in the reception quality. FWIW the
    orignal phone didn't appear to be new as some of the packaging and the
    manual was opened. I think I got someone elses returned phone.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!!!
