    I live and travel on the "cusp" of digital / analog Verizon service. My V60i has a bad habit of switching from digital to analog from time to time although I'm clearly in a digital signal area. I used to use a Kyocera 6035 which had the option of selecting digital only service so I didn't have that issue. I can't find a way to do this w/ the v60i. Is there a way to avoid this switching back and forth from digital to analog?

    The only thing in the network settings that may help is switching ANALOG ONLY to OFF. Not sure if this will help, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

    If you go into test mode, there is an option on the third screen called "PrefMod". Normally it is set to DigPref (probably stands for Digital Preferred), but there are options for Analog and DigOnly.

    To go into test mode, press [MENU] 073887* from the idle screen. It will ask for your 6 digit Security Code, which should be 000000 unless it has been changed. You will now be in the Programming Menu. Scroll down to the last option - Test Mode - and then select Enabled. You will be on the field test screen. Hit the right soft key twice and you should see a list of various options. Scroll down to PrefMod and then hit the right soft key to toggle between DigPref/Analog/DigOnly. Note, the phone will not save changes to these settings after a power down and restart, so this does not look like something that you can permanently set.

    To get out of test mode, hit [MENU] and right soft key, reselect Test Mode, and select Disabled.

    Good luck.

    Thanks to all who responded. Vtguy, you're the man! Sounds like V60 is not intended to allow selection...I don't think I want to go through the test routine everytime I power up/down. When it shifts into analog, I get a tone and, if I power off and on, I usually get digital back...easier than the test approach. I'm not in a roam situation, just live on the edge of civilization!

    Thanks again for all your responses...that's what makes this board fun.
