Gee, look at that. All the time I had a 5165 it never picked up a 1900
signal, but I suppose that has more to do with where I live.

Anyway, the guide says that Cingular does TDMA and GSM 1900 but not in
Cherryvale. The guide says there is TDMA 1900 in Cherryvale from
Dobson, but Dobson's web site says not. So I'd guess the lousy
connections are from falling back to AMPS.
