So my wife's captivate glide seems to have this problem:
- her glide (everything is stock) often never rings when someone calls her. No missed call notification, just a voicemail if the person decides to leave one.
-yesterday at home I called her phone from both my cell (motorola Atrix, HSDPA) and landline...no ring. Immediately afterwards from my landline to my Atrix, phone rings. Signal strength is around -70dBm for both the Glide and Atrix. I turned on airplane mode on the glide and then off. Called again from our landline and the phone rings on the glide.

Is it the cell tower? phone?

ringer volume is on...the glide was in front of me while I was dialing it from our landline or from my Atrix. The glide did not pop up the incoming call screen or ring until I turned on/off airplane mode, which is not a suitable workaround.

cell signal strength from my atrix shows -83 to -91 dBm. cell tower is ~488m away (using the open signal app)

I get this too sometimes.
Could never figure out why if it's hardware or software.
Anyone else have this issue?

my dads phone (a basic nokia on at&t) does this on occasion the phone has to be rebooted & it works fine. it happens after he goes to their summer home (300 miles away & in a rural area w/ LOTS of at&t dead spots). it does appear to be a tower/roaming type thing.

I've summed this up as an AT&T issue. Have been with them since the Cingular days and every phone I've ever had with them has exhibited this behavior. Making the switch to T-Mobile now that I can get an unlimited everything plan for $60/month

Thing is for when I did my test, my phone (Atrix) got the incoming call from our landline and my wife's phone (Glide) did not. Both have the same band support, maybe the Glide was on a different band?
