    ....Something key to this discussion. If the phone is staying on the same
    SID/system, a PRL will make NO difference on how a phone performs...

    Thank you to all of you. I am learning a lot here. Yes, the phone is going
    to repairs. I was there yesterday but the line was tremendous.--

    YES - And if tech support tells you they've no other complaints about
    dropped calls and seriously reduced signal strength, email me for the
    number of two trouble tickets I've now opened!

    I'm on the upper west side of Manhattan. To get a good enough signal to
    use, I have a car antenna in front of my apartment window and I'm
    attaching that to the VX4400 antenna jack! This is NOT exactly
    wireless.

    VZ finally acknowledged there was trouble with a nearby cell site but
    said they'd made a temporary fix. It hasn't changed at all, or it's
    worse.

    I tried to "escalate" only to be told it was necessary to open a new
    trouble ticket.

    I'm not sure if it's the PRL or the site, but I do know I even went
    through the trouble of swapping out my phone which was still under
    warranty - but as suspected, it made no difference.

    I put an old Star Tac 7868 back into service - it made no difference.

    I don't know how to make them take notice. But if enough of us complain
    - and if, perhaps, we share trouble ticket numbers.....

    YES - And if tech support tells you they've no other complaints about
    dropped calls and seriously reduced signal strength, email me for the
    number of two trouble tickets I've now opened!

    I'm on the upper west side of Manhattan. To get a good enough signal to
    use, I have a car antenna in front of my apartment window and I'm
    attaching that to the VX4400 antenna jack! This is NOT exactly
    wireless.

    VZ finally acknowledged there was trouble with a nearby cell site but
    said they'd made a temporary fix. It hasn't changed at all, or it's
    worse.

    I tried to "escalate" only to be told it was necessary to open a new
    trouble ticket.

    I'm not sure if it's the PRL or the site, but I do know I even went
    through the trouble of swapping out my phone which was still under
    warranty - but as suspected, it made no difference.

    I put an old Star Tac 7868 back into service - it made no difference.

    I don't know how to make them take notice. But if enough of us complain
    - and if, perhaps, we share trouble ticket numbers.....
