on my phone some times it lasts 30 mints some times less. im just wondering does anyone else have these problems? or know why they happen?. i no it's not my handset i have tryed useing my other telecom handsets and they do that some thing.
Are you on 027? Because of the way CDMA works with all calls using the same frequencies it suffers from an issue called cell breathing. This means that the size of a cellsite coverage is dictated by the S/N (signal to noise) ratio which in turn is increased by the number of active calls on a single cell. Because this base noise level is increased it means a phone further away from the cellsite has to to increase it's transmit power to communicate with the site, if your phone can't increase it's transmit power any more it will result in a loss of coverage. Unlike GSM CDMA or AMPS doesn't have a maximum number of channels per cell, it's a mathematical equation which depends on factors such as terrain and background interference.
Basically more callers = less coverage
less callers = more coverage
It's quite a common complaint with CDMA carriers in the USA who have poor network management, if your outages are occuring at peak times then I would suspect it could easily be the cause.
