Just stumbled upon these two tips on another forum, just wondering if anyone here has any experience with using them? Do they work? Are they worth using? Faster Call to Ring (inbound calls) thanks to the Hero forum for this tip: Ring Lag fix?? You may want to call your cell phone to see the affect before you do this. My cell phone rings on the 2nd and a half ring from my office land line. After I did this, an inbound call rings on my cell phone at the 1st and a half ring. 1. bring up the phone app (like your making a call) 2. dial ##7764726 (PROGRAM) 3. enter password 000000 (thats 6 zeros) 4. go to Slot Cycle Index 5. change from 2, to 1. 6. hit Menu, then commit changes Now the phone will reboot. Make a call to your cell phone again and see if it rings faster. This forces your phone to checking 2 times faster than it normally checks in for calls. From roughly 5 seconds to 2.5 seconds. I did this on my 2.1 OS, so the program layout may be a tiny bit different. But the term Slot Cycle Index will be stated the same. EVRC-B codec (to improve call quality) To make the change/upgrade: Enter a call for: ##7764726 Use pass code: 000000 Now scroll down to "NAM CDMA Settings": Click on each below to set the EVRC-B codec "Preferred voice Service Option for Home Page" "Preferred voice service option for Home Origination" "Preferred voice service option for Roam Origination" (I would leave this one at EVRC) ---I say to leave the roaming to EVRC because EVRC is the national CMDA standard so if your in a rural area the newer EVRC-B may not work and give you call errors. after that, hit the Menu button, and the option "Commit Modifications" pops up. click and you have 10 seconds until the reboot. Or just click OK and the reboot happens instantly.
