    Searching through the .pdf file, I found neither TDMA nor GSM. The manual
    looked the same as mine, at least as far as I was willing to compare, which
    was the first 10 pages or so.

    Clearly, and the picture looks like my phone. Perhaps there are two different
    versions, but Motorola uses the same number? If not, I'd be pretty suspicious
    of anything else at that site.

    1. I'm using AT&T/Callplus/Pharos prepaid. I call out, people call in.
    Gotta be TDMA.
    2. The booklet that came with the phone says "Model V60i, TDMA,
    SJJN491blablabla" on the cover.

    Motorola built the v60t as a TDMA phone and the v60c as a CDMA phone
    then about a year later released an improved version named v60i (i for
    improved?). I know as I owned both the 't' then the 'i' as an ATT TDMA
    customer. Both the TDMA and CDMA versions were called v60i. Just to
    keep things interesting, they then released a GSM version too! Hope this
    clears up some confusion.

    I would presume i fo iDen (the Nextel transmission setup).

    And wasn't that version known as V60g?? Seems their banding nomenclature
    tells the whole story. Is the V60g compatible with todays systems? (as
    it was about 3 or 4 years ago it was introduced.

    I don't think so as the 'i' was offered in both TDMA and CDMA flavors. I
    don't believe it was offered as an iDEN phone since it doesn't have the
    walkie-talkie function.

    There were CDMA, TDMA *and* GSM versions of the i, if I recall correctly.

    OK, now that you guys have that settled, does anybody know the answer to my
    original question:

    ==============
    Friend gave it [TDMA v60i] to me when she got a fancier one. I got it
    converted to
    my existing callplus setup, including changing the NAM1 MIN
    (#27blablabla), which now reflects my number. Unfortunately it still
    shows her number along with my name when I turn it on. Minor thing, but
    annoying. I've googled to no avail. What's the secret?

    And an incidental question: My house is in a minimum-bar/no service
    area. Is this phone (used only for occasional calls when I'm away from
    home) more or less likely to suck in a marginal signal than my old Nokia
    5160? The Motorola is smaller and cuter, but cosmetics aren't
    everything.

    The v60 accepts an external antenna. (little rubber plug just below the
    antenna on the back.) For use in the house, the tradeoff of good signal
    verses loss of mobility might be acceptable.

    But I did come across a discussion where someone else is
    apparently trying to do something similar:

    Have you actually gotten into the programming menu where you can change
    the number, home SID, et al? I used to have a C331T, and it wasn't too
    difficult to get into that programming and change the number. I was
    experimenting, and I programmed my CDMA number in the TDMA phone, and
    they both rang when I received a phone call. The TDMA phone was roaming
    on Western Wireless Cellular One and the CDMA phone was Western Wireless
    Cellular One.

    I don't remember how to get into the menu because it's been about 2
    years since I got rid of the phone, however I will do some research and
    see what I can pull up.

    Here's how to get into the programming menu:

    - Menu 073887* (do it fast)
    - You may have to enter the security code (up to 6 digits)

    I don't think there is a time restriction, but if it keeps failing you
    may restart the phone, and try to access the menu right after it's on.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks. I got up to the point where it wanted the security code, but
    unfortunately I have to ask the previous owner and she's probably forgotten it
    :-(

    I think the default may be 000000. It was on all of mine until *I*

    Bingo, thanks! I changed the NAM...MIN from what it was to a new number and
    it said fine, no problem, but when I turned the phone on again it immediately
    displayed the old number as 'My Number'. Much cryptic stuff in there, what
    should I look for?

    I'm playing on a spare phone, incidentally. If I foul it up there's less
    damage done than if I were doing it to my real phone.

    Know how to get rid of the annoying little tune that plays when you turn it on
    or off? Pushing the volume buttons doesn't do anything.
