Default Calls keep dropping...

Please Login to Remove!

...OK, I drive the same route every day. With my old Cingular phone or my wife's Cingular phone, I can have a continuous conversation from home to office without issue.

The 7100G (from AT&T Corp through work) seems completely unable to pick up the next cell site when the signal drops. As soon as the call drops from lack of signal, I get full signal strength (instantly) from the new tower.

When not on a call, I have watched the meter and the 7100G seems to have no problem switching from tower to tower and I always have >50% signal strength.

Can this be addressed by upgrading or downgrading the handheld firmware (currently on 4.0)?
