Motorola V325 system set to Automatic A or B?

    I like this phone and it seems to be reliable. I have fooled with the
    settings and I seem to get slightly better reception with System set to
    Automatic B rather than A. What is the difference? I suspect I can get
    analog more easily instead of a weak digital signal with B rather than with
    A.

    If you're in a digital area, then it shouldn't mean anything really. In
    fact, it probably won't mean anything even IF you're in Analog, either.

    If anything, the setting probably makes the phone "prefer" to look inA
    or B-bands first, depending on the setting. But ultimately, the phone
    will look onto the best signal it can find that is listed in its PRL.
    It's the PRl and not the A or B setting the ultiamtely determines what
    networks the phone will register on.

    If you're getting faster signal acuisition with the Automatic B setting,
    then that most liekly means, you're in an area where Verizon's operates
    a network in the old Cellular B band. IIRC, most of Verizon's 800MHz
    networks are on the B side, with a few regions of A-side here and there.
