    I've lost my antenna 4 times now. Keep ordering new ones on the web
    (Cingular wants $35.00, cellphoneshop.com gets 50 cents). I just
    ordered a bunch of antennas, 5 "original", 5 stubby, 5 extendable, 1
    remote. They took over a week to ship from Hong Kong. Only the OEM
    looking onces fit. The others obviously had smaller stems. The remove
    was the same as one I had for my Nokia. Didn't work at all.

    I'm looking for a good source where I can put in a supply of these
    guys.

    Thanks,
    John

    Would an extentable offer better reception?

    they go for 93 cents on ebay, ~$8.50 for shipping, chrome. It is supposed to
    increase the reception as well...

    OK, it's been 3 weeks since I received these things that didn't work.
    For your reference, I sent [email protected] four,
    countem four emails about this incorrect shipment. Still no reply. I
    tracked down a phone number for them and got only a recording. Looks
    like I'm screwed.

    If any of you folks need anything for your phone, I'd avoid
    cellphoneshop.com like the plaque.

    BTW, I'm still looking for a good source for these. I still need some
    standbys.

    Thanks,
    John
