    Is it possible to change network (or program) of this phone from Cingular to
    AT&T? How do (also) change the initial greetings from BMW to Mercedes Benz?
    Please help, the Cingular Networks in our area do not support TDMA. Please
    send info to [email protected]. Thank you.

    Re: BMW Motorola Timeport TDMA P8197 changing networks

    You are absolutely, positively SOL. (Sh_t Out of Luck)You also will not be
    able to buy a Non BMW Timeport and stick it in that install kit as well. It
    has been the oldest problem in cellular. The "OL BMW, Mercedes and Jaguar
    (and II believe LEXUS) Proprietary Phone Deal" They make Big Bucks for their
    phones and wanna keep it that way. They have proprietary firmware and their
    phones work with their own car kits and thats it. As to changing a phone
    from TDMA to CDMA or to GSM, well you'll need GOD for that and hes booked
    well into the next century. If the use of this phone is important to you, I
    suggest you either find a ATT plan that works for you. If not appropriate,
    you can always get a Plan on Pharos International Prepaid so at least its a
    useable phone in an emergency. For info on Pharos and other PrePaid Rate
    Plans :

    PS, I doubt youll change the wakeup message as its part of the firmware as
    well.
