I just migrated from a 180 to a 270. Although Cingular service is fair to poor in parts of Silicon Valley where I live and work, at least the 180 was useful.

With the same SIM the 270 only came alive after having Cingular look at my account. (They must have kicked it in the side) --- BUT, the signal strength is REALLY poor. I have to find the BEST part of my area to even get it going.

I thought the "radio" in the 270 was BETTER than the 180.

Any thoughts? --- Maybe a HARD RESET?
