    BTW - I try to force it with manual network selection, but Cingular boots me off the network when I'm in a "TMO" area. I get much better reception on the ATT/Cingular tower.

    Restated - is there a way to reset the OS so Cingular is the "home" network instead of T-Mobile?

    The short answer is no. Preferred network selection works only if a tmo signal is not present. If a tmo tower is available then you will be forced to use it, even if the other network has a stronger signal.

    tin-foil hat? isn't that to keep aliens from tuning in to your brain?

    Or do you mean an antenna mod? (lots of people on T-Mobile MDA forums trying to mod MDA internal antennas by slitting /slicing the internal foil...).
