    For Cingular the SOC should be 3, not 2049. Also, Connected System ID should be different than P/RSID.

    Dude- you cannot manually change the alpha tag on a cingular phone- You need to take it to a corporate Cingular location with a technician, and he can hook it up to a computer and change it for you.... This is the only way- there is no other-

    The only way you can change the alpha tag on a 5165 is by using the Wintesla software and the right set of cables.[​IMG]

    Guys, don't say that's the only way to do it when there are tons of people who have done it like I did. You just have to know the right P/RSID number. Look for the P/RSID for your area in the website link I posted above.

    I work for Cingular and know how to change the alpha tag on the 5160, 5165, and 8260....Unfortunately, I need the phone physically to do it...
