    this might have been discussed. if so, apologize and appreciate if you can
    help. I recently moved to a new house in So Cal and Cingular reception is
    terrible. So I bought 2 v551s thinking these phones would help reception. It
    didn't help. I heard I can update software which might increase reception. I
    am buying a data cable, but heard there is a program to flash the phone. Can
    anyone help me? where to download this program? any instruction to update
    s/w on v551 would greatly appreciated
    thanks

    Sure. First go to www.motomodders.net and www.howardforums.com search by
    both model# and flex/flash. These sites have all the software tools and
    EXCELLENT guides on this.

    Good luch, happy flexing.

    Flashing/flexing a phone will probably not help you.
    If you have different model phones and the reception is poor at a given
    location, then software probably won't fix it.

    Operators normally do not turn down a phone's reception capability. Tmobile
    will turn off a whole band such as 850 so you don't roam there but Cingular
    enables all the bands.

    Roaming lists are contained as part of the SIM and you can't overwrite that.
    You may not be able to roam on another network due to a network oper
    blocking it, but that's a SIM function. Older Cingular sim's do not allow
    roaming to AT&T so be sure you have the latest SIMs and ENS enabled so it
    will roam to the AT&T networks. The V551 has the feature in the phone but
    requires the right SIM.

    If all else fails, switch operators.

    Different carriers have vastly different coverage in different cities. I'm
    in So Cal and I tried Cingular (great phone choices) but I could not get
    decent reception at my home where I use it a lot for long distance calls.
    Verizon has crummy phones with disabled features but has the best reception
    in So Cal.
