    I live near Las Vegas, NV and have AT&T service, which is supposed to pick
    up both analog and digital as required. Most of my cell phone use is while
    hiking in outlying mountains, usually with sight of Vegas or a nearby
    suburban area, almost always within AT&T's coverage map.

    I "upgraded" from a Motorola StarTac to a Nokia 3560 last summer. I hike
    with friends who have the exact same AT&T service plan, but have older Nokia
    phone (a year older).

    I Rarely can get a connection on mountaintops, by my friends are almost
    always able to get a connection -- with older Nokia phones, and the same
    service plan. Typically, my phone shows full strength signal (4 bars),
    while theirs show only 2 bars. Theirs ring and connect to the called
    number; if I call the same number, I get a rapid busy signal and no
    connection.

    I've been back to the local AT&T store; they couldn't offer help. I've
    called AT&T several times; they charged me $25 to send a "new" (actually
    used) phone, same model, which has the exact same problem.

    Any ideas? Is there a better newsgroup to post this problem?

    I can't say I share your experience with the 3560, however, I just upgraded
    to a 6560, and while it may be subjective, I think it gets better reception
    than the 3560. The volume is also louder, which I like. I think, again this
    is just subjective, that both the 3560 and 6560 get better reception than
    other AT&T TDMA phones, specifically, the Motorola V60.
